The Lamp of God’s Word
Scripture reading for November 14th: Ezekiel 6-9, 2nd Peter 1
Key Scriptures: 2nd Peter 1:19-21 “And we have the prophetic word more fully confirmed, to which you will do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts, knowing this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture comes from someone’s own interpretation. For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.”
Peter, writing his last letter to the church, encouraged the believers to pay attention to God’s Word. Holy prophets wrote down the Scriptures as they were directed and guided by the Holy Spirit. No Scripture comes from man’s own intellect or opinion. God’s Word is a bright light shining in the darkness of this world to guide His people home.
Ezekiel 10:4-5 “And the glory of the Lord went up from the cherub to the threshold of the house, and the house was filled with the cloud, and the court was filled with the brightness of the glory of the Lord. And the sound of the wings of the cherubim was heard as far as the outer court, like the voice of God Almighty when He speaks.”
Prayer: Lord, thank You for Your Holy Scriptures that shine as light in our dark world. Thank You for speaking to me and guiding me through this day. Amen.
