You all know my desire and passion to get all of us in the Word every single day. What better way to use my space here on the Internet than to fill it with Scripture.
Every single day, I will have a new scripture on the blog, sometimes with thoughts about it, sometimes with questions for you to ponder, and maybe sometimes just the scripture itself. But no matter what, I am vowing to publish Truth each day so no matter who comes to this space, can find a treasure. There are no greater words to read than God’s very own words.
So while I will still be publishing my usual blog posts and podcasts, I will also have a scripture each day right here on the blog. I pray this blesses you and encourages us all to get in the Word each day. I also hope the scripture I share here is NOT a substitute for sitting down and opening the Bible yourself…but perhaps a reminder, an encouragement, or a starting point. Ultimately, there is no substitute for getting into His Word each day.
Let’s all vow to be seekers of Truth! Let’s start simply…seeking Him.
Be careful that you do not forget the Lord your God, failing to observe his commands, his laws and his decrees that I am giving you this day. Otherwise, when you eat and are satisfied, when you build fine houses and settle down, and when your herds and flocks grow large and your silver and gold increase and all you have is multiplied, then your heart will become proud and you will forget the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. He led you through the vast and dreadful wilderness, that thirsty and waterless land, with its venomous snakes and scorpions. He brought you water out of hard rock. He gave you manna to eat in the wilderness, something your ancestors had never known, to humble and test you so that in the end it might go well with you. You may say to yourself, “My power and the strength of my hands have produced this wealth for me.” But remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your ancestors, as it is today. If you ever forget the Lord your God and follow other gods and worship and bow down to them, I testify against you today that you will surely be destroyed. Like the nations the Lord destroyed before you, so you will be destroyed for not obeying the Lord your God.
We live in a world where it is easier than ever to follow other gods. Today, vow to remain fixed on the One and only true God. Do not forget where you came from, what He saved you from, and how He provides. Worship Him alone.
