Prayer of the Day
Daily PrayerSeptember 1st, 2015
How do you respond to the word of God? Do you hear it with selective submission or with the full assent of faith and obedience? When Jesus spoke he needed no authorities to back his statements. He was authority incarnate — the Word of God made flesh. When he spoke, God spoke. If we approach God’s word submissively, with an eagerness to do everything the Lord desires, we are in a much better position to learn what God wants to teach us through his word. Are we eager to be taught by the Lord and to conform our life according to his word?
"Lord, your word is power and life. May I never doubt your saving love and mercy, and the power of your word to bring healing, restoration, and freedom from sin and affliction." Amen
