Oh Lord, I pray that we will begin to learn by You and not all things man & woman. Truly, we must learn to divide what we hear from people in church and other places with what Your Bible says. If we are not doing this, then I wonder where our heart is really. Why do people love what they learn from people and other books more than the Bible? How is it that what You have said in scripture is second place or further on people’s list? I’ve asked my mom and other family members how long it has been since they’ve read the Bible and they often say, “I’ve read it before”. It’s like they think that the Bible is like any other book and once we’ve read it, that is enough. So what do I say to these types of people who are so lost, God? What does God and His words mean to You? If they say, “more than everything”, I then ask them, “don’t you think then that reading the Bible daily to know what God says is important?” This truly gets them thinking and motivated to read the Bible, so that they can learn from You daily. I do this, Lord, for I know that the Bible is holy. It is Your written word for us in this time and in all generations. I trust in You, Jesus. Lead me now and all the days of my life. I love You, God. Amen.
Exodus 7:1,2 (KJV)
1 And the Lord said unto Moses, See, I have made thee a god to Pharaoh: and Aaron thy brother shall be thy prophet.
2 Thou shalt speak all that I command thee: and Aaron thy brother shall speak unto Pharaoh, that he send the children of Israel out of his land.
We were once spoken to through prophets, but then Jesus came and we are now spoken to through Him.
