Daily Hope & a Prayer – Day 24

For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power [making it active, operative, energizing, and effective]; it is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life (soul) and [the immortal] spirit, and of joints and marrow [of the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart. Hebrews 4:12 (AMP)

Dear Father,

I thank you for not leaving me alone in this journey. But, as a loving Father, you have provided a means by which I can grow in intimacy with You, through prayer, the Holy Spirit, and the Bible, which is the Word of God. Help me to recognize the importance of seeking to know and understand You through Your Word.

As I read and study the Scriptures, give me clarity and new understanding of who You are, Your purposes and all manner of spiritual and biblical truths. Give me the courage to search the Scripture for truth, and to allow Your Word to reflect the light of truth on my life, choices and heart. Expose my motivations and secret desires. Then, if these are revealed to be in opposition to Your Spirit or Your will, give me an obedient and submissive heart, that I may acknowledge my rebellion and sin, repent, and turn toward You in order that I might be changed, and fully used for Your glory.

In Jesus name I pray,
