July 5–The Unfolding of God’s Word

The unfolding of your words give light; it gives understanding to the simple.

Psalm 119:130

Was there ever a time when some portion of Scripture just seemed to come alive for you? Or, maybe I should say, that you came more alive by it? Your world, or at least your thinking, got a little bit brighter with the revelation, the opening up—the unfolding of God’s words—to you. 

That is the power of God’s Word because it is the True Light of the world (John 1)! And it is through Jesus Christ—the Word made flesh—that we are rescued from the dominion of darkness and brought into God’s eternal kingdom of light (Colossians 1).

God’s Word breaks through to expose not only our sins that need forgiveness but also exposes the unfailing, uncompromising, life-giving LOVE our LORD has for each one of us. And that is an understanding that each one of us, simple ones, desperately need. That is an understanding that has the power to radically change our lives right now and for all eternity.

Get into God’s Word! Let God’s Word get into you so that it may be unfolded within you and give its light and understanding to you—and, then, through you to others!

Thank God for unfolding His living and active, light-giving, understanding-giving Word to us!

In love, peace and purposeful passion,                                                               Sylane
