“I have made a covenant with God that he sends me neither visions, dreams, nor even angels. I am well satisfied with the gift of the Holy Scripture, which give me abundant instruction and all that I need to know both for this life and for that life which is to come.” (Martin Luther).
God, we thank you for the priceless treasure you have entrusted to us in your written Word. We rejoice in the many promises we find in its pages for our strength and encouragement. We pray that as we get into the Word, it will get into us in a life-changing way. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

“You have laid down precepts that are to be fully obeyed. Oh, that my ways were steadfast in obeying your decrees.” (Psalm 119: 4-5 NIV84).
