For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires. -‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭4:12‬ ‭(NLT)

I have a colleague who recently took some open book exams, which reminded me of my schooldays. As students, we’d get excited when the teacher would utter the words “open book,” but that just meant we’d have to look harder for the answers!

What if we had an instruction manual for life? That would make things easier…right? Well, believers do. With God’s Word, we have His guidance for how to live our lives. Sometimes, the answers jump off the page, and at other times, they don’t come up till we read long enough to connect dots to form the answer.

Either way, God gives us the guide for living, and His one way to make it to Him once we pass through this world.

Here’s a great resource page of some of God’s answers to our life questions and concerns »

God lovingly made us and gives us a guidebook for living righteously and to His glory. Let’s continue to study it daily so we’re not unprepared when life tests us!

Today’s soundtrack

MercyMe’s “Word of God Speak” asks God to speak to us as we quiet ourselves to hear Him.
