I am so amazed at God and His word. I am absolutely thrilled when I read the scriptures. There is so much truth, so much reality, so much awareness. I feel when I read like I never want to stop. I just want to study every area of it, I want to sometimes just read it like a novel since there's so much drama in it. I tell you I just love the word of God.
Sometimes I get mad with myself that I wasted many years just skimming the surface of The Word, not really knowing who God is. I am just so thankful for His faithfulness. I am grateful that He promises if I seek Him, I will find Him.
And seeking Him is what I am doing, day and night.
I've struggled over the years with issues like insecurity, loneliness, abandonment, approval addiction and time and time again I would try to work on them, getting nowhere. I tried in my own strength over and over again to no avail. I had a rocky marriage for years and each time I would try to work things out and after a while, same thing again.
All this, until I got to the point where I started to allow the word to renew my mind. I looked into the mirror of the Word and saw myself as I really was. I was reading the word but not fully digesting it and so I wasn't allowing it to work in me.
After listening to teaching by Joyce Meyer some years ago on the battlefield of the mind, I started to get a glimpse of how things could be if I would allow God's word to penetrate the deeper recesses of my mind and heart.
I started to open up more and more and more and I tell you friends, it has been marvelous the things that He has done in me.
I have seen God do some wonderful things in my life and that of my family, but my greatest satisfaction is the personal change that has come about since I have become more intimate with Jesus.
He truly has become the lover of my soul. He reveals things to me, He speaks truths to my heart that I couldn't know otherwise. I am growing in His wisdom in ways I could never imagine before.
This Word of Life has become my life and my everything.
I sum up this post in the words of the Psalmist David, " I will never forget Your precepts, for by them You have preserved my life." Psalm 119:93
Thank you Jesus, for being the Living Word to me.
