TODAY'S WORD FOR TODAY
The Bible Is God Speaking to You (5)
‘Your promises have been thoroughly tested, and your servant loves them.’Psalm 119:140 NIV
Can you imagine how honoured you’d feel to have a personal audience with a president or prime minister? What are the chances you’d say, ‘Sorry, I’m too busy. I can’t come’? No, you’d approach them with profound respect, observe every protocol and hang on every word. Well, you can have a personal audience each day with the King of Kings and He will speak to you personally through His Word. When you’re in love with someone, you want to spend every possible moment with them, delighting in what they have to say and responding to them from your heart. David said, ‘The law from Your mouth is more precious to me than thousands of pieces of silver and gold’ (Psalm 119:72 NIV). Again he said, ‘Your promises have been thoroughly tested, and Your servant loves them.’ An unknown poet wrote: ‘Though the cover is worn and the pages are torn, and though places bear traces of tears. Yet more precious than gold is this book worn and old, that can shatter and scatter my fears. When I prayerfully look in this precious old book, as my eyes scan the pages I see; Many tokens of love from the Father above, Who is nearest and dearest to me. This old book is my guide, ’tis a friend by my side, it will lighten and brighten my way. And each promise I find soothes and gladdens my mind, as I read it and heed it today.’ Whatever you have to sacrifice, whatever priorities you have to rearrange, read your Bible every day.
