When we read our Bibles today, we see Chapter and Verse listings that were not there in the original text. While those markers help us find a specific area of the text faster, like during a Sunday morning service, we need to be reading the whole book to give us the best opportunity to listen to what God wants us to hear from Him at this particular time in our lives.
Sometimes a whole chapter, or even a book, gains significant meaning as the Holy Spirit is teaching us and refining us. At other times, it is just a phrase or a single sentence that God uses to point us in the direction He wants us to go today. Each day on this journey is different.
With both of those thoughts in mind, I am going to share some of the portions of Scripture that God has been using in my life recently. They are just snapshots out of my Bible notebook, but I think you may find one that encourages or challenges you too! You can look for them on Sunday, Wednesday, and Saturday, at least through this Fall, and maybe further.
Read the Word of God. It changes you!
