I am so grateful to my friend Karen, who always has a word from God for me when I need it.
She gave me some verses this week that I want to share with all of you. It was an amazing revelation once she had me change the wording of you and us to I and me.
When I read it the way she suggested, it made all of the difference in the world. How amazing is that? I never thought of it that way before. "That I may know what is the hope of his calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His Power toward me who believes." WOW! That is so powerful. I have been repeating this for several days, and I am so in awe.
It works on other passages also. I had been studying Deuteronomy 28:12 - 13, and when I made the changes it reads this way.
The Lord will open to me his good treasures of Heaven,
I shall lend to many nations, but I shall not borrow,
The Lord will make me the head, not the tail,
I shall be above, not beneath.
All of these are promises of God, and even more. I'm not trying to change the word. Please don't get me wrong. I'm just trying make let the word live in me, and God wrote his book to all of us. I hope this makes a difference when you read his word. He is writing to you. It is his love letter and promise to all of us. So when you read it, try to remember that it is YOU, ALL OF YOU, that he is speaking to
Have a blessed week.
