A Daily Rhythm Encouragement
Originally published by Church on Morgan
This week in our S.O.A.P-y series we’re focusing on A, Application.
What would be the point of reading and observing truths in Scripture if we didn’t do anything with them? When God speaks to our hearts we are called to act, using what we’re learning to bring light and hope to a dark and needy world.
Reading the Bible as part of the rhythm of your days, weeks or months, creates a place where you can go to hear God, learn about His character, discover how much He loves you, experience His amazing grace and be reminded that “as far as the east is from the west so far has he removed our transgressions from us.” (Psalm 103:12)
As you uncover truths that speak to your heart, be intentional to apply them to your life and in the world:
Is a lamp brought in to be put under the bushel basket, or under the bed, and not on the lampstand? For there is nothing hidden, except to be disclosed; nor is anything secret, except to come to light. (Mark 4:21-22)
With each step forward that you take, standing on His truth, God will likewise be faithful to invite to take yet another step…and another…and another. One of the beautiful things about our God is that we can never exhaust the joy of discovering him, nor grow complacent in our praise as long as we are moving toward Him.
And the really great news is that even when we falter and turn away, he uses his Word to call us back to him:
God’s kindness is meant to lead you to repentance. (Romans 4:12)
What truth is God teaching you as you adopt a rhythm of reading His Word?
