Bible Strong-Pray and Read His Word Nov 2018

As I eat breakfast I often watch Christian Television. This morning two different pastors were preaching about the return of Jesus in the Rapture. I often long for His return and my heart longs to be with Him. Sometimes I ask Him to come get us. This morning was no different. It will be quite the celebration when He comes to get those of us who are still alive and on this earth.

As I sat down to read my Bible this morning, I said a prayer before I began. One thing I was asking the Lord to help me with, was to endure all the trials of life we have to go through. I prayed He would give me the strength to go through them until He comes and gets us or I go to Him.

I began reading 1 Corinthians 1:1. Seven verses in, the Lord gave me this:

1 Corinthians 1:7-9 now you have every spiritual gift you need as you eagerly wait for the return of our Lord Jesus Christ. He will keep you strong to the end so that you will be free from all blame on the day when our Lord Jesus Christ returns. God will do this for he is faithful to do what he says and he has invited you into partnership with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

This isn’t the first time the Lord has spoken so directly to me. It has occurred many times. I often document them because they are so very special to me. I know it won’t be the last time either. As long as I’m alive, the Lord will speak to me through His Word. He does it for all of His children who read His Word.

Lord, I thank You for Your counsel, for communicating with me. I hide Your Word in my heart Lord. I hear, speak, live, share and obey Your Word. I love Your Word I have to have it. I cannot live without it.

If you have a need today, ask the Lord in prayer today to help you, to show you the way. Ask Him to speak to you directly through His Word. Then open your Bible and read His Word. Give Him the opportunity to speak to you today and give you what you need. His Word says you have not because you ask not. Ask Him today.

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.

 God bless. Heal the brokenhearted, bind up all their wounds.
