Breath Of Fresh Air

For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
 1 Corinthians 1:18

To me the word of God is like a breath of fresh air. Imagine if you will being in a very polluted area where there may be chemicals spewing forth in the air and then you leave that area and are able to breathe freely and healthy again. That is how I feel about God's word. 

So many people who go to church don't really read the Bible. Maybe it scares them. Perhaps they do not know where to begin. There may be even faiths that do not encourage it. The Bible is our toolbox for life. In it are words of life, strength, hope, renewal, and promise. 

If you are having trouble getting into God's word daily might I suggest first you put one in your car. That way you can sit in a parking lot somewhere while waiting for children, appointments or whatever and have it handy. Don't know where to start? The book of John in the New Testament or try the Psalms or Proverbs in the Old Testament. Each day if you make this a habit your mind and heart will start being renewed. You will trust more in God and less in the world. Give it a try. 

PRAYER: I thank you Lord for living in a country where I am free to have God's word in my possession. Forgive me for taking it for granted. Please stir up a hunger in those I know who have no desire for your word. In Jesus' name. Amen.
