The Bible tells us "For the word of God [is] quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit and of the joints and marrow, and a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart." God's Word has real power. While it has the ability to cut to the joints and the marrow as the previous verse reveals, it cuts in order to heal. God knows our innermost thoughts and the intents of our heart and when we have a better relationship with Scripture, we not only grow in our relationship with God, but also reshape how we comprehend our lives and identify our greatest needs. If you are looking to cultivate the practice of reading Scripture, here's how. It may take some time, but it is totally worth it.
