The more I spend time reading the Word of God and in prayer the more I am learning about how God is present in my everyday life. I like many of us stumble very often in life with my words or my actions or my thoughts and as I sit down each morning and read from a Billy Graham devotional book and from the Bible I am learning about the things Jesus was teaching when He was here and what He is still teaching us today. When I think about other things I could pick up and read first thing in the morning, the Bible and time with God are clearly the only things that will renew my spirit, restore my mind and comfort my thoughts. I can physically feel my shoulders loosen up and relax more as I read and pray. The Word of God also sets up my perspective for the day and helps to refresh my attitude to help and serve others wherever I can. The Bible is truly the Word of life and the living water that only comes from Jesus Christ. May we all see and sense the presence of God’s Word in our daily life.
“But blessed in the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out it roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”
