A Teachable Heart

Psalm 143:10

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 143:10       

Teach me to do Your will, for You are my God.  May Your gracious Spirit lead me on level ground.       

God loves us so much that He gave us commands to obey that will lead us towards His goodness and mercy and away from a path that leads to destruction. If left to our own devices, we would stumble and fall into a life of sin. But God had mercy on us and sent the Holy Spirit to guide us onto the straight and narrow path that leads to God. In order to be led by the Holy Spirit, we must have a teachable heart, which goes hand in hand with humility. We must have a willingness to learn and to receive instruction, which sometimes comes in the form of correction. Trust in the guidance of the Holy Spirit and you will never be led astray.

The Bible is Alive and Active

Hebrews 4 12

Verse of the Day:  Hebrews 4:12

For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.

The Bible, which is the Word of God, isn’t some old irrelevant book of stories. It is alive and active today and forever. If you begin to read God’s Word daily, I promise, it will start to change your life. Ask God to reveal His Word to you. You’ll see how much He really loves you, His promises and His will for your life. Whatever you are going through the answer is found in God’s Word because it contains infinite wisdom from the Lord. Use it to guide you through life, to convict you when you need correction and to nourish your soul every day.

God Has the Answers
