I'm thankful for God's Word.
40. That it is true.
"from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work." 2 Timothy 3:15-17
41. That it is alive and active.
"For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart." Hebrews 4:12
42. That there are so many promises for hope and peace and salvation, and that God can never break His promises.
"For all the promises of God find their Yes in him. That is why it is through him that we utter our Amen to God for his glory." 1 Corinthians 1:20.
43. That His mercies are new every morning and the path to that mercy is so often His Word.
"Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning." Lamentations 3:23
"Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path." Psalm 119: 105
44. That there are still times when I read it and it's like reading it for the first time.
