Spiritual Sunday



Spiritual Sundays is a place to gather to read inspirational devotions and to help prepare your heart for Sunday worship. Spiritual Sundays is hosted over at BloggerSpirit.



A verse that has captured my heart this week is found in Romans 10:8 "The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart." This is followed by the glorious truth that "if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved."
This brought me to ponder the power of words. Mainly the power of God's Words. If we read God's Word, it will be a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path. There is everything that we need in the Word of God. It contains help, hope, comfort, encouragement, admonition, direction about everything. And..it is near us and if we spend time in it, in our heart and in our mouth.
The Psalms and Proverbs are wonderful book to read and say aloud in prayer to God. The Psalms is full of majestic praise that my heart could never image, but I can read and pray to our glorious God from His Word. When we are facing difficult and challenging times, God's Word can bring clarity and attest to His power, - "The Lord is my light and my salvation, whom shall I fear." "Be strong, and let your heart take courage, all you who wait for the Lord". Where and when I am weak, His Word can give me strength and hope. So, I purpose to choose His Words and talk like a winner!
May your Sunday be blessed and may your hear and receive from God's Word!

  2. Encouraging words about the power of the WORD! Romans 10:7-10 were some of the first Scriptures I ever memorized. Thinking about the Bible reminded me that the new ESV study Bible is coming out the 15th of this month. Wayne Grudem is one of the editors and also a Bible teacher at "our" church. He is a fantastic teacher of the WORD.

  6. I used to "beat myself up" for using words so much. I've always been expressive in words...talking, writing, you name it. Recently, the Lord clearly revealed that it isn't the amount of words I use, but which words I use. I am now eternally greatful that I love words so much because I believe that it is my great love for TRUE WORDS that drives me to THE WORD!! And if I never spoke, read, pondered, or heard any other words as long as I live...I would want to speak, read, ponder, and hear the Word of God!! Thanks for sharing today.

  8. Isn't it wonderful that God is bound by His Word and that we can't confess it in boldness with the very same power?! Wonderful post!
