THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
Of June 30, 2019
Like with many things, our attitude and preparation play a big part in attaining the understanding we desire when we read the scriptures. If you want to experience God working in your life, come to Scripture with a prayerful, expectant, purpose-filled attitude. When you approach the reading of the scriptures prayerfully, that prepares our hearts to listen attentively and ushers in an attitude of purpose and expectancy.
Consider the biblical description of Samuel’s first encounter with God. The priest Eli gave him invaluable advice—that when the Lord calls, he should say, “Speak, Lord, for your servant is listening”. Praying those simple words with conviction before you open your Bible will help you to hear God more clearly and to recognize what a gift God’s Word is to His people.
HAVE A BLESSED WEEK IN THE LORD!
