Let God's Word Sink Deep Into Your Heart

Share This Devotional

I’ve heard God’s Word interpreted and described in so many ways. For instance, it is food for the soul, good fruit, a how-to manual, a guidebook, good seed, and a lamp unto our feet. Whatever name you give it, we must read, reflect on, and gain guidance from God’s Word every day. 

All of us are called to be disciples of His Word. However, before we set out to speak and educate wherever and however God directs, we must first commit to learning, comprehending, and believing the truth of His Word.

“Son of man, let all my words sink deep into your own heart first. Listen to them carefully for yourself. Then go to your people in exile and say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says!’ Do this whether they listen to you or not” (Ezekiel 3:10-11).

I didn’t commit my life to the Lord and start reading the Bible until I was in my mid-20s. At first, reading the Bible was really intimidating. Initially, I was under the assumption that I had to read it all at once and commit it to memory. I was relieved to discover from my newfound Bible study friends that the Bible is best absorbed in small, manageable portions. If I wanted to truly comprehend God’s Word, I needed to take my time, not rush through it. 

Since I started my journey as a Christian 23 years ago, I have devoted a significant amount of time to reading and studying the Bible every day. Ezekiel shared these words from God: “Let all my words sink deep into your own heart… Listen to them carefully…” and I have experienced the wisdom in doing that. Over the years, I have found great comfort and peace in His Word, and I have committed numerous passages and stories from the Bible to memory. 

Because of this, I am better able to fulfill God’s calling on my life and share His love, grace, and truth with others. One of God’s many blessings to me is the desire to put pen to paper. It brings me great joy to use this gift to inspire others to strengthen their faith, become aware of God’s promises, and accept Jesus Christ as their personal Savior.

So, in obedience to God, I will continue reaching out to God’s children who are still in “exile,” distanced from Him and His truths, regardless of whether they listen or not. One simple gesture or prayer can lead a lost soul into God’s loving embrace! 

Prayer: As we comb through Your Holy Word seeking Your truth and having Your words sink deep into our hearts, help us share Your truths and love with others, regardless of the outcome. Lead us, oh Lord our God. Amen.
