let’s enter the presence of God together…

believing his WORD is his VOICE…

and because of Christ – he is with us through the Spirit – speaking to us through his word.



asking the Lord to speak through his word.

then read.

as you read – give him time, space to speak.

as you read – ask questions about his words – and give him time, space to speak.

as you read – listen – and give him time, space to speak.


for what credit is it if, when you sin and are beaten for it, you endure? but if when you do good and suffer for it you endure, this is a gracious thing in the sight of God. for to this you have been called, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, so that you might follow in his steps. he committed no sin, neither was deceit found in his mouth. when he was reviled, he did not revile in return; when he suffered, he did not threaten, but continued entrusting himself to him who judges justly. he himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. by his wounds you have been healed. for you were straying like sheep, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls. [1 peter 1:20-25]
