Thankful Thursdays- Thy Word Part 2

The Holy Spirit has been leading me this week to closely consider God’s word. Not only have I been lead to consider what God’s word bring to my life, I have been led to consider how I use the word of God, how much time I spend in His word and the ways in which I need to let His word become a part of me. God’s word is important it is our lifeline; with out it we limit our knowledge of God. I am constantly praying God would reveal Himself to me; one of the primary ways He does this is through His word. He reveals Himself to me not only through His written word but because of His great love for His people, for me, He brought His word to life, He gave it breath and it became a live in the earth.

In the beginning the Word already existed. The Word was with God and the Word was God.

He existed in the beginning with God. God created everything through Him, and nothing was created except through Him.
John 1:1-3

The Word brought us life, and He brought us true light.
The Word brought us the right to become children of God,
The Word brought us God’s unfailing love and faithfulness.
The Word is near and dear to the Father’s heart; The Word has revealed God to us.
John 1:9, 12, 17-18

The Word brought us a new life that will not quickly end. Our new life will last forever because it comes from the eternal, living word of God. 1 Peter 1:23

I give thanks today for the Word of the Lord which remains forever.
