My thoughts today bring me to Nehemiah 8-9. In chapter 8, we see the public reading of the law, and from here it seems that it sparks some reform in the Israelite part. The next thing we see is celebration over who God is, and then restore the Feast of Booths. Then we get to chapter 9, where we see the people confessing their sin.
When is the last time being in God’s word brought you to either to a place of celebration or of confessing of your sins? We should be impacted deeply by our time in God’s Word as the Israelite people were. So I will leave you with this question, are you actually paying attention to what you are reading in God’s Word? Let us pay attention to God’s Word and allow it to impact us and let the Holy Spirit work in our lives. Thanks for reading!
