“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Hebrews 4:12-13

TODAY’S WORD…

.

The Word of God is alive and active,

sharper than any double-edged sword.

It cuts all the way through,

to where soul and spirit meet,

to where joints and marrow come together.

….

It judges the desires and thoughts of the heart.

There is nothing that can be hid from God;

everything in all creation is exposed and lies open before His eyes.

And it is to Him that we must all give an account of ourselves.

.

– Hebrews 4:12-13 (GNT)

REFLECTION…

.

God’s word is consoling and life-giving,

but it also dreadful for those who try to ignore it.

St. Justin tells us,

"The word of His truth is hotter and brighter than the sun,

and pierces the very depths of hearts and minds."

Perhaps that is why so many avoid reading Scripture,

or play it down,

or ignore it!

.

The depths of our hearts,

our deepest thoughts, attitudes and intentions,

all lie open to God’s all-seeing eye.

.

.

QUOTE…

.

"What a person does or thinks is expressed in his actions,

but one can never be sure of what motivates his actions.

That, however, is never hidden from God"

.

– St Thomas

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Father God, please give me the character and the courage

to always be guided by Your Word and to actively practice Your truth.
