Hebrews chapter 4 verse 12 of course makes a One Year Bible blogger's heart happy :) - "For the word of God is full of living power. It is sharper than the sharpest knife, cutting deep into our innermost thoughts and desires. It exposes us for what we really are." Do you believe that the Word of God is full of power? Not just power, but Living power? Does it cut deep into your innermost thoughts and desires - and expose the condition of your heart? Does the Bible expose you for who you really are? Do you believe that the Word of God can do this? Will you let the Word of God do this?
This chapter opens up with a beautiful verse: "God's promise of entering his place of rest still stands." On a busy day, doesn't God's place of rest sound nice? I like that! God has promised us a place of eternal rest if we will simply have faith in his Son. His Son whom verse 14 today tells us: "That is why we have a great High Priest who has gone to heaven, Jesus the Son of God. Let us cling to him and never stop trusting him." Are you clinging to Jesus as your High Priest? Do you trust Him? Are you longing for your eternal rest with Jesus?
Worship Video: Today's readings in Hebrews 4 reminded me of the Third Day song "Lift Up Your Face:"

Please join us in memorizing and meditating on a verse of Scripture today: "For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart." Hebrews 4:12 (NIV)
Prayer Point: Pray that God's Word is living and active in your life! Pray that God words penetrates to your soul and spirit, joints and marrow. Pray that God's Word judges the thoughts and attitudes of your heart each and every moment of your life!
