Read Luke 23-John 1
I picked 2 verses today:
Then Jesus shouted, “Father, I entrust my spirit into your hands!” And with those words he breathed his last. (Luke 23:46 NLT)
This verse reminded me that in my darkest times or even just stressful times, I need not be afraid or worry. God is with me and will take care of me as I entrust Him with all my daily choices and circumstances. I can't control what happens to me, but I can control how I respond--and that should reflect my faith & trust in God.
Then he opened their minds to understand the Scriptures. (Luke 24:45 NLT)
I can understands how reading the Bible can be intimidating and difficult when we don't always understand what God may be trying to tell us. But I want to encourage you to pray that the Holy Spirit will open your minds to understand God's Word and show you to apply it to your daily life. That is one reason I love the POWER OF 3 reading plan because it helps me focus on a short portion with the church community, so we can share insight and encourage one another!
So, I hope you will join me in reading along and sharing your thoughts about what God is showing you through each passage!
