This week, I've been so thankful for specific truths that I've encountered in God's Word, His promises, His commands... each one a treasure printed there in black and white but also penetrating and alive... I love the fact that God speaks my love language...
#351 God, Who chooses to reaveal Himself with exquisite, enlightening, encouraging, sometimes excruciating and exhilirating words.
#352 Jesus, Who is the Living Word
#353 the Holy Spirit, Who reveals the meaning of all of those words, whispers into my heart, opens my mind and confirms through all that is around me the revelation He's given
#354 the many different men who allowed God to work through them to pen those words
