You are the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being. You sustain all things by Your powerful Word. You provided purification for our sins and sit at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven. [Hebrews 1: 3] You are the Word from the beginning with God, and you are God. All things were made through you. In you is life, the light for all humankind. [John 1: 1-4] You are the Word that became flesh and made your dwelling among us. We see your glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. [John 1: 14]
Your Word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path. [Psalm 119: 105] Your Word was the response you gave when you were faced with temptation. You created us not just as physical beings but also as spiritual ones. We need more than physical food. We also need spiritual food [See: Matthew 4: 1-11]. We need your Word planted in our hearts and minds! All Scripture comes from you and is useful to teach, rebuke, correct, and train us in righteousness [2 Timothy 3: 16] so that we can live as your faithful disciples. In Joshua [1:8}, you tell us to meditate on your Word day and night that we may carefully do what is written in it. Through your Word, you make me know the path of life, filling me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand. [Psalm 16: 11] Am I meditating on your Word? Am I seeking you and delighting in you? LORD, please open my heart and mind to study your Word and seek you with everything I am. Forgive me for seeking joy in things that cannot satisfy. In you, I find true joy.
For yours are the kingdom, the power and the glory, forever and ever. AMEN.
