As I’ve been thinking about this all morning a new viewpoint has hit me.
Perhaps you have read the verses before, but you haven’t HEARD these verses from today’s perspective ever before. God wants to speak to you today! He wants to speak to you not just generically, but meeting you right where you are at.
The struggle you were having the last time you read those verses may be different than the struggle you are having today. God still wants to help you. The Bible is amazing: “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.”
