Day 11 Devo - Still Speaking

We saw in Hebrews 4:12 that the Word of God is living and active.  In John 6:63 Jesus also tells us:  "The words I have spoken to you are spirit and they are life."

There is life in God's Word because God's Word is alive.  We have also learned that the Word of God is eternal.  In Mattrhew 24:35 Jesus tells us:  "Heaven and earth will pass away, but My ways will never pass away."

The Bible isn't just a history of the things God said in the past.  If this were the case, we would find no power, no comfort, no salvation, and no life.  The Bible would be no more than  ink on paper, just like any other book.  The reason the Bible is different is because the Word of God is alive and powerful today!  Through the Bible, God Himself speaks His Word to our hearts today by the Holy Spirit who lives in us!

Point to Ponder:

God is still speaking today, just as He always has.  It is His nature to speak, and to reach out to His creation.  He desires for you to hear His voice!  Because our hearts are still sinful, and our minds are often preoccupied with worldly things, we are not sensitive to His voice, as we should be.  As we grow in Christ and become more fully yielded to Him, we become more sensitive.  We learn how God is speaking to our hearts today by learning the Word God has spoken.  As God speaks to you through His Word in the Bible, you will learn to recognize God's voice in your life.
