Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 04/23/17

This week’s scripture is from Acts:

“…they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day…” (Acts 17:11)

How important it is to read the Word of God, to know the Word of God, to study the Word of God, for the Lord speaks to us through His word. We want God to speak to us; we want God to hear us. We want to hear God when we pray and when we have tough questions, and questions only He can answer. When we know His word, then He can speak to us through His word, for when we pray He will bring to mind His word; He will bring to mind a passage or a story or a parable or a person or remind us what Jesus said, and we will have our answer. We will know what we should do or what is the right path for us. He will give us answers; He will give us wisdom and hope, grace and peace. He will speak through His word to us. So let us be reminded to indulge ourselves in the Word of God, to read the living word and get life from it.

May the Lord bless you to read His word daily and be blessed by it.
