DAY 6: WORDS OF LIFE

GIVEN ENOUGH TIME and the right conditions, a river can slice through rock, leaving canyons that are thousands of feet deep. It’s not because the river is powerful but because the river is persistent. It’s the same way with the Bible. If we take time to read and reflect on it, it’ll make an impact on our lives, almost without us knowing it.

David’s Psalm 19 outlines some of the life-changing effects of Scripture. He explained how it

• pulls our lives together,

• point[s] out the right road,

• show[s] the way to joy, and

• warns us of danger (vv. 7, 8, 11 MSG).

It all points to a powerful truth: God loves you and promises to reveal Himself to you when you seek Him. But like the river working on the rock, there’s got to be a point of contact. If we don’t ask, He won’t force Himself into our lives. So ask. Seek. Let the river water flow over you, carve you, and shape you into His likeness.

For those who find me find life and receive favor from the Lord. (Proverbs 8:35)

Finding both life and favor from the Almighty—that’s an amazing promise to claim on our lives today. So let’s stay with our hearts wide open to His presence in our lives. And let’s do it every day. It is the way to all good things.
