To See His Word

I believe in the power of God’s Word. I believe in the power it can do in my own heart and life – as well as the power it can do in everything that goes on around me.

I like to have God’s Word written out in spots throughout my home where I can see it. Running into Bible verses constantly puts my heart and mind in focus and it centers me. It helps put me in the right place. But it’s more than that. I believe something supernatural happens when I leave His Word in my home. I believe it protects me. Arms me.  Guides me.

I have verses written on index cards that I leave on my desk, by my computer, and in my bathroom. I’ve written verses on my white board in the kitchen. And even recently, I saw how my daughter had written a verse on the bathroom mirror in eraseable marker. It was brilliant. I was so happy to see her putting something she wanted right in front of her face every morning. Every time she got ready to go somewhere.

Power being released.

I don’t know about you, but I’m so weak in my own strength. I need God’s Word constantly. I need daily (and sometimes hourly) reminders of His promises. His truth.

I need to SEE it.

There is nothing more tangible than physically writing out how He speaks to me and then running into it every time I go into a room.

God’s Word IS alive. It IS active. The thing is, it can’t do anything for us if we don’t first open the Bible up. If we don’t read it. If we don’t use it.

However, there is great strength, healing, and guidance in it if we do.

So many of us claim to follow a God that we don’t know that much about. We don’t know what He is saying to us because we don’t put in the time to read it. To listen and hear what He is trying to tell us.

Open it up. Write it out. Read it out loud. Place it where you can see it. And then SEE it. First with your eyes. Then with your heart.

And let it fuel you.
