Glory Seed Devotional’s 2018 Experiencing Jesus, the Prelude to Life
When the Bible Prays…
The world would have us believe that it contains all knowledge, all wisdom, all inspiration, all discernment we need to not only survive but to thrive as well. However, the Living Word of God (the Bible) says otherwise, the Bible tells us Jesus is the Way, “Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6) The Bible has also been referred to as “the Living Word of God” the Bible is not only 66 books but also thousands of prophetic words animated by the Holy Spirit.
While the life of the Bible is beyond our capacity to understand, the Bible as a living “being” with the help of the Holy Spirit communicates to us, with us, and for us. When it comes to praying God not only listens to us He also listens when the Bible prays for us as well. This morning the Bible prays these Words to you and for you. “And I pray this: that your love will keep on growing in knowledge and every kind of discernment, so that you can determine what really matters and can be pure and blameless in the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.” (Philippians 1:9-11)
You and I know there are many voices “sugar coating” their worldly message to keep us from God, in response the Bible urges us to keep building and deepening our Love relationship with God, “…so that we can determine what really matters and can be pure and blameless in the day of Christ.”
One of the common voices we all “hear” is a voice telling us God has pushed the “ignore button” on our prayers for help, but God not only listens to our prayers He also “tunes” into the voices calling out to us as well. And in response God pulls out all the stops giving us what we need to determine what really does matter. Consider this… It’s amazing what God goes through to draw us out of the world and into His presence. He gave us Jesus, so we can accept His sacrifice, so we can have eternal life. He gave us the Holy Spirit to replace Jesus, so we can accept His many and inclusive ministries, He gave us the Holy Spirit to be our Comforter, to be our Tutor, to be our Protector, and God also gave us the Bible as a way of communicating with us and communicating to Him for us as well.
With Jesus as our Advocate with God, the Holy Spirit as our 24/7 Holy Companion, and the Bible as a source of communication between us and God, and between God and us the world does not stand a chance.
“Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life…” (John 14:6)
