Father, You are good! You are kind and gracious to call us into Your Presence and to give us Your Word and Your Spirit that we might hear from You and know You and Your will. And in doing so – we are forever changed!
Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. Rom 10:17
We are saved by Your Word! We are built up and sanctified by It – changed and set apart for You.
Now I entrust you to God and to the Word of His grace that is able to build you up and give you an inheritance with all those He has set apart for Himself. Acts 20:32
Knowing It protects us.
I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against You. Ps 119:11
My child pay attention to what I say. Listen carefully to My words, for they are life to those who find them and healing to their whole body. Prov 4:20-22
Your Spirit teaches it to us and counsels us with it and by it we are convicted and made right.
But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father sent will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to You. John 14:26
Father, You know that my mind is more and more forgetful, my ears do not hear well and even though I wear contacts I still need cheaters to read. With this awareness in mind I pray – that no matter what else I forget and no matter how deaf or blind I may continue to become – please never let me fail to remember Your Word or to hear Your voice or to follow where It leads. In Jesus’ powerful name – amen and amen!
