Lord, we need Your Word - and we need Your power! We need the written Word - and the living Word! Speak to us Your Word. Speak to us in the power of the Holy Spirit. May we know, in our hearts, that Your Word is more than "the word of men." It's "the Word of God which is at work in us who believe" (1 Thessalonians 2:13) - the Word of God which brings us to "faith" in Christ (Romans 10:17), the Word of God which brings to us new life in Christ (1 Peter 1:23-24; James 1:18), the Word of God which leads us to "grow" in Christ (1 Peter 2:2). Thank You, Lord, for Your Word. May it always be to us more than the written Word. Help us to hear Your living Word - the Word which changes us (Hebrews 4:12).
