Floored. That’s how I feel.
I shouldn’t, because, you know:
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;
his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness. (Lamentations 3:22-23, ESV)
Do you ever feel like you’ve heard all of the Bible quotes? Or you’ve heard every sermon/translation/interpretation? Do you ever feel like your walk with God is stale?
READ THE BIBLE.
I swear I’m no scholar or power reader, but he knocks me on my socks when I open His word!!! (Thank you Lord!)
Yesterday, I read this, and it blew me away:
For the son of God, Jesus Christ, … was not Yes and No, but in him it was always Yes. For all the promises of God find their Yes in him. (selections from 2 Corinthians 1:19-20, ESV)
I have read through the entire Bible once before, but I don’t remember reading this! I’ve been a Jesus follower for a long time, and I’ve been going to Bible-focused church for over 13 years.
If you don’t know how to daily experience God’s promises, you only need to look to Jesus. He is the fulfillment of them all. Every part of the Bible, even the Old Testament points to Him – they’re not distinct!
I’m sorry for all of the exclamation points, I just feel like yelling! Haha.
What passage has hit you like a ton of bricks lately? Is there a promise from God you don’t feel like you’ve experienced?
