The “Book of Books” is the Living Word that sustains me. I still have the lovely children’s Bible that I received as a kid and I’m amazed at how far I have come since then. I thank the Lord for granting me the incredible privilege of being called His child and for being able to freely read and study the Scriptures in my own language. Such an honor and a responsibility at the same time! My favorite verse is from Joshua 1:8-9.
“This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
Given the struggles and challenges of life, this is my go-to verse. Without Him, I am nothing, but with Him, nothing is impossible! There’s power in the Word. Meditate upon it, memorize it and speak it out loud over the situations in your life. Pray it over your unsaved loved ones and rest assured that His Word won’t come back empty, but it will accomplish the Lord’s purposes.
Thank You, Jesus, for making yourself known to me at such an early age and later on, fully turning me to You as I understood and received the word of salvation! You deserve all the glory and honor!
