Staying in The Word

So I’ve been struggling lately in the sense that I feel like there is something that the Lord has planned for me, that He is going to use me in a particular way but I can’t quite put my finger on it. At times I feel like I am so close to putting the pieces together as to what it is, but I can never seem to grab onto it even though I sense it directly in front of me. I’ve been praying and praying that what the Lord has in store for me be revealed but it just seemed that I never got any closer to grabbing on to it. It’s like I had so many questions and none of them were getting answered and the more I searched, the more confused I became. It had been some time since I had done any reading in my Bible and it finally occurred to me (thank you Lord) that I needed to get back in The Word. I randomly chose to start reading in the book of John. All I can say is WOW! Even though I didn’t read anything that specifically pertained to the questions I’ve been struggling with, my eyes were completely opened up! John 1:1 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” Then I recalled Genesis 1:3 “And God said, “Let there be light”, and there was light.” So what did this show me? There is EXTREME power in the Word of God! His Word not only spoke all of creation into existence but “the Word was God”! No wonder I wasn’t getting my questions answered!! No wonder I’ve felt like everything was so unfocused!! It was all becoming absolutely crystal clear – when you are with His Word and in His Word, you are with Him.

So another lesson learned for Jenny – STAY IN THE WORD!!! There is power in The Word, there is clarity in The Word, God himself is IN THE WORD!!! As I get back to daily reading of the Bible, I have faith that my questions will now start to get answers. How exciting!! I’ll keep you posted…

Thank you Lord for always lighting up my next step on the path!
