Welcome to the 30 Days of Thanksgiving. We are on day 4 of my absolute favorite month!
On a side note, today is my brother’s birthday. Happy Birthday David! He is truly a blessing to m
e. He takes such good care of his big sister. You would never know that I am the older sibling! He takes care of me! When my husband is gone, him and my dad are my go-to guys! He has been by my side in some very dark moments of my life and is a steady rock for me. Thank you my dear brother! I love you and appreciate you greatly!
Today, I am thankful for the Word! I love the Word of God. I love to
read it, study it, and just meditate on it. It is life to me. God’s Word is alive and active and I have a great desire for it to be alive and active in me! Our verse today comes out of Psalm 119. Psalm 119 is one hundred seventy six verses about the Word of God.
Psalm 119:62- At midnight I will rise to give thanks unto thee because of thy righteous judgments.”
Have you thanked the Lord for His Word?
It is a lamp unto our feet, and a light unto our path.
The Word keeps us from sin.
Through it we get to know our God and how we ought to live.
It teaches us knowledge, understanding, and good judgement.
According to Hebrews 4:12, the Word of God is…
- sharper than a two-edged sword
- pierces soul, spirit, joints, and marrow
- discerner of thoughts and intents of the heart
2 Timothy 3:16 states that “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:”
Our activity for today is to read Psalm 119. Notice all the different names for the Word of God. Highlight or underline them in your Bible (if you write in your Bible 🙂 Here’s a quick tip, use a yellow or pink crayon to highlight. It doesn’t bleed). My challenge for you is to memorize the whole chapter.
My prayer is that we are thankful for His Word and that we will study it and be able to rightly divide the word of truth!
“The Bible was inscribed over a period of 2000 years
In times of war and in days of peace
By kings, physicians, tax collectors, farmers
Fishermen, singers and shepherds
The marvel is that a library so perfectly cohesive
Could have been produced by such a diverse crowd
Over a period of time which staggers the imagination
Jesus is its grand subject, our good it’s design
And the glory of God is its end”
