Draw Us Deeper, O God
Good Friday morning, Loved Ones! What a blessing it is to embrace this new day with brand new mercies from GOD who loves us beyond our understanding.
Lamentations 3:22-23 AMP – It is because of the Lord’s lovingkindnesses that we are not consumed, Because His [tender] compassions never fail. They are new every morning; Great and beyond measure is Your faithfulness.
While you’re in your quiet time of communing with the Father in prayer and reading His Word, don’t just read the Scriptures but invest your time in studying and meditating on them. Just reading for the sake of satisfying an innate obligation barely scratches the surface. The depth of God’s Word can lightly be compared to diving down to the ocean floor in search of hidden treasures. I invite you to extend your quiet time, ask the Holy Spirit to take you beyond the words on the pages of the Bible and deeper into the knowledge of GOD where the richest treasures are.
2 Timothy 3:16 AMP – All Scripture is God-breathed [given by divine inspiration] and is profitable for instruction, for conviction [of sin], for correction [of error and restoration to obedience], for training in righteousness [learning to live in conformity to God’s will, both publicly and privately—behaving honorably with personal integrity and moral courage];
2 Timothy 2:15 AMP – Study and do your best to present yourself to God approved, a workman [tested by trial] who has no reason to be ashamed, accurately handling and skillfully teaching the word of truth.
Colossians 2:2-3 AMP – [For my hope is] that their hearts may be encouraged as they are knit together in [unselfish] love, so that they may have all the riches that come from the full assurance of understanding [the joy of salvation], resulting in a true [and more intimate] knowledge of the mystery of God, that is, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge [regarding the word and purposes of God].
1 John 2:5 AMP – But whoever habitually keeps His word and obeys His precepts [and treasures His message in its entirety], in him the love of God has truly been perfected [it is completed and has reached maturity]. By this we know [for certain] that we are in Him:
Prayer: FATHER GOD, thank You for giving us Your Word to live by. As we draw closer to You, draw us deeper into Your guiding Truth. In JESUS’ Name. Amen.
