These things happened to them as examples for us. They were written down to warn us who live at the end of the age. —I Corinthians 10:11

Such things were written in the Scriptures long ago to teach us. And the Scriptures give us hope and encouragement as we wait patiently for God’s promises to be fulfilled. —Romans 15:4

God’s Word has examples for us to warn us. His Word teaches us. His Word gives us hope. His Word gives us encouragement. His Word will be fulfilled. Followers of Jesus are to be patient. This will happen. We are heed the warnings, learn, have hope and be encouraged.

Is there a warning in God’s Word that you are to be heeding today? What is it that God is seeking to teach you from His Word today? Are you allowing His Word to give you hope? How has His Word encouraged you? Are you patiently waiting for God’s promises to be fulfilled?

His Word gives us all we need (II Timothy 3:16-17). Those who follow the Lord God Almighty desire His Word to truly live (Matthew 4:4). His Word is more precious to them than gold (Psalm 19:9-10). They seek to hear from Him to be wise and able to serve others (Isaiah 50:4). His Word is truth and light and they realize this and seek to share that truth and light with others (Psalm 119:105, 130).

Today, listen to what He has said to you as you sat at His feet. That is the one thing that is needed (Luke 10:39, 42). Listen to what He has to say, but then we need to act on what’s said.

Dear Father, may I be faithful in listening to what You are saying to me and be obedient out of loving gratitude. May this be so in the power of the Holy Spirit, bearing His fruit, and in the authority of Jesus as He has sent me. May it be so!
