For whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.

Romans 15: 4

 

God must have an amazing drawer filled with writing tools; there would be a stylus for etching stone, some quills for dipping into ink, fine and broad tipped markers, and all manner of electronics. He also uses His breath to speak His Word into existence, He uses the softest touch imaginable to write love onto our hearts, and Christ came out of eternity and into my life to scribe my tale of salvation..

 

The Lord did not want any of us to miss what He has to say. So, He wrote it everywhere. God’s truth is found in the light and the darkness of every day, it is found in the power and the subtlety of nature, it is written across the pages of the bible, and it is spoken from the mouths of His people. The Spirit of Christ reaches into the depths of the human heart and implants the literal presence of God. We frail and sin weakened humans are lifted out of the darkness of this world and into the glory of Lord.

 

The thing that God wants me to understand is that there is no obstacle, no fear, no insecurity, no pain, and no condition of my heart that He does not have a perfect and a timely answer for. If I will continue to seek him and desire to know Him ever more intimately through the word of truth that God has literally surrounded me with, I will find the deep joy and satisfaction, and the undeniable hope that Christ desires for me.
