This morning I was reading Job, the last chapter where Job worships God. Reading it from the Message and Job says to God:
"I admit I once lived by rumors of you; now I have it all first hand - from my own eyes and my ears! I'm sorry--forgive me. I'll never do that again, I promise! I'll never again live on crusts of hearsay or crumbs of rumor."
As I read that I thought this is why we need to stay in the Word each and every day. We don't need crusts of hearsay and crumbs of rumors from the people around us. We need to be in the Word of God reading His words to us, seeing His words to us, that's how we now get Him first hand.
Lord God I praise you and I thank you so much for your Holy Word, for your Holy Spirit that indwells the Believer and for the freedom, privilege and the responsibility to be in Your Word that we will know You and that we will understand You more and more each day.
I praise You God because You are God and I am so thankful that Jesus reconciled You and me.
