Day 1: Choose Life
Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”
God’s words bring life, everlasting life. God’s word is alive and the only way we can truly have a personal relationship with God is by reading and meditating on his words. It is a way for Him to talk to us, answer our questions, comfort, encourage, teach, grow and strengthen us.
When we shift the focus from what we want to getting to know who He is and His will for our lives, He does the rest. He restores, transforms, strengthens, provides–among many other things. But ultimately we have a choice. We can choose other things, such as instant gratification or shortcuts.
However, all those things will eventually lead to death. Or we can choose life, which this scripture clearly says we get by God’s word. I pray that you choose life and that you commit to reading and meditating on God’s word daily and that God reveals His power as you do.
May His will be done in Jesus’ name. Amen.
