Give the Word Some Thought
(Proverbs 16:20) Whoever gives heed to instruction prospers, and blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord.

The Lord’s counsel does mighty and marvelous things for our spirit when we give the Word some thought. When we read the Word, we grow in wisdom by spending time thinking on it. We are shaped and sharpened by the Word when we obey its instructions. The Word forgives and saves us from our sins. We have the gift of salvation through the Word. The more we spend time with the Word – both the scriptures and the Person – the more we are molded in the Potter’s hand. The distractions of life won’t be able to grab our attention like they once did because we are centered in the wholeness we find within the counsel of the Lord. Looking for some direction? Give the Word some thought.
