Today's Step in the Word

There is no getting away from the fact that God was from the beginning and is from everlasting to everlasting. God is the Word, the Word is God and there is no separating of the two. When we read the Holy Scriptures we come in close and personal contact with God. We know who He is and what He desires of us. So read God’s Word today.

Heaven and earth shall pass away, but My Words shall not pass away" (Matthew 24:35). "Thy Words were found, and I did eat them; and Thy Word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart . . ."(Jeremiah 15:16)

Monday - Tuesday - Wednesday - Thursday - Friday - Saturday - Sunday

Monday

“Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness” (2 Peter 3:13).

True believers have absolute faith in God’s Word and promise of a new heaven and a new earth as His post judgment day eternal plan, prepared for those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life (See also Revelation 21: 1, 27 and 22:1-6).

Tuesday

“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind” (2 Timothy 1:7).

It is so easy to fall into fear. God reminds us in His Word that He has given us gifts of power, love and strength to overcome or withstand fear and we are not to be its victim. Having a sound mind has everything to do with having a new mind with our thoughts centered on Jesus. (See also 1 Corinthians 2:16; Philippians 2:5; 1 John 4:18).

Wednesday

“I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13).

Our strength and ability comes only from and through Christ. He enables us to perform all things. Our reliance is totally on Him and He gets all the glory for this. This also includes being saved (See also Psalm 27:1, 140:7; Habakkuk 3:19).

Thursday

“Who hath ears to hear, let him hear” (Matthew 13:9).

God repeatedly uses these words in His parables to teach that those whom He has saved will have spiritual ears to hear and pay attention to His Word. Those who are unsaved will not hear spiritually what God is saying. (See also Proverbs 20:12; Isaiah 50:4, 5; Matthew 13: 13, 16; John 10:3-5).

Friday

“Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice: for the Lord will do great things” (Joel 2:14).

God will do great things to those who are saved, living for Him and obeying His Word. He will provide for their daily upkeep and living and also when the Day of Judgment and desolation comes, they will be spared and drawn into His everlasting kindness. (See also Isaiah 54:4-10; Acts 14:17).

Saturday

“Set a watch, O Lord, before my mouth; keep the door of my mouth” (Psalm 141:3).

Like the Psalmist, we are to wisely ask God to guard us from hasty and hurtful speech. Our mouths and speech are to be used to honor God and edify others. (See also Psalm 34:13; Micah 7:5; Jeremiah 9:4, 5).

Sunday

“Thy Word is true from the beginning: and every one of Thy righteous judgments endureth for ever” (Psalm 119:160).

God’s Word is breathed by God, it is true, infallible and inerrant and we are to trust it in its entirety. (See also Psalm 119:89; John 1:1; 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20, 21).

BIBLE ALERT - This feature takes a look at a Book of the Bible and highlights its spiritual application, meaning and other related facts.

This week’s alert features The Book of Ruth

If there was ever a love story, it is found in the Book of Ruth. Endearing, short and sweet, the four chapters of Ruth in the Old Testament portray with tenderness, love and caring the story of Naomi, her two daughters-in-law Orpah and Ruth, and Boaz, Naomi’s kinsman. Naomi and her husband Ebimelech leave their homeland Bethlehem because of famine and hard times and go to live in the country of Moab. Their sons Mahlon and Chilion marry two Moabite women, Orpah and Ruth. After Ebimelech and his two sons die, Naomi decides to return to Bethlehem. Her daughters-in-law are under no obligation to return with her. Orpah returns to her people but Ruth pleads to follow Naomi into a new land, with these beautiful and sincere words “Entreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God: Where thou diest, will I die, and there will I be buried: the Lord do so to me, and more also, if anything but death part thee and me” (Ruth 1:16).

“And Salmon begat Boaz, and Boaz begat Obed, and Obed begat Jesse, and Jesse begat David” (Ruth 4:21, 22).

As a foreigner in an unknown land Ruth finds favor in the eyes of Boaz, Naomi’s kinsman. He allows her to glean in his barley field and gather after the reapers among the sheaves. He protects her and shows her kindness and takes her to be his wife. As we read this endearing book of Ruth the Moabitess, we are to be captivated by the faithfulness of Ruth and the actions of Boaz who is a spiritual picture of Jesus Christ our kinsman redeemer, who by His love, bought back the lives of those lost in sin and gave them a place in His eternal kingdom. Ruth by her marriage to Boaz and by God’s divine plan becomes the great grandmother of King David and an ancestor of Jesus. The Book of Ruth is a must read, it contains many spiritual truths. .
