DAY 18

LISTENING THROUGH GOD'S WORD

“It is the glory of God to conceal a matter; to search out a matter is the glory of kings.”

Proverbs 25:2 NIV

God’s glory is concealed through His Word, but the believer can see 

His glory revealed through careful searching of the Word.

God’s Word is a treasure to be discovered. Deep truths cannot always be mined by merely scratching on the surface. It seems everywhere, the Father has given guideposts that point toward the ultimate treasure, His Son, Jesus Christ.

To mine these eternal riches, even as with earthly jewels or precious ore, you have to dig beneath the surface. That’s why it is so important to ask the Father to give you supernatural wisdom every day as you search the Word for fresh, priceless, life-giving resources.

God’s Word is a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our paths.

You, Lord, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light. With your help I can advance against a troop; with my God I can scale a wall. As for God, his way is perfect; the Lord’s word is flawless; he shields all who take refuge in him. For who is God besides the Lord? And who is the Rock except our God?

Psalm 18:28-31 NIV

God’s Word can illuminate our lives today.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.

John 1:1-4 NIV

Spend time each day reading God’s Word. It is the pathway to God’s will and direction, taking us from a place of uncertainty to a glorious mountaintop of victory.
