Psalm 85

2 Sep

“Let me hear what God the Lord will speak,
    for he will speak peace to his people, to his saints;
    but let them not turn back to folly.
 Surely his salvation is near to those who fear him,
    that glory may dwell in our land.” (vs. 8-9)

This is one of my favorite passages, and something that I continue to pray each and every time that I open the scriptures.  God has given us the Bible in order to reveal Himself, His work, and His calling for His people.  I trust that no matter what I read, God will speak to me–words of encouragement, comfort, hope, challenge, conviction, command–and, because the Scriptures are living and active, the Spirit will use them to work on renewing my mind and re-orienting my heart so that I might become more like Christ.

The question I have is this: Is this how you approach your own Bible reading?
