Hallelujah, praise the living God for another day to pray for you all and be used by Him. Today I offer you this thought from Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Honestly…still wrestling with this one.
“Proper reading of Scripture is not a technical exercise that can be learned; it is something that grows or diminishes according to one’s own spiritual frame of mind.”
2 Timothy 3:16-17 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
16 All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; 17 so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.
Lord Jesus, Your servant prays for wisdom and understanding to properly apply Your word. Prepare this mind and heart to receive and understand Your truth. Remove all pride and self-effort in obtaining scholarly knowledge and place desire for pure and gentle truth. Simple and easily shared, both in action and speech. Holy Spirit, please lead the way with Your wisdom. Keep Your servant on the righteous path. Hallelujah for removing the condemnation that held Your servant prisoner. Continue to bless and protect us. In Jesus’ name, amen.
