This devotional is meant to discuss the relevant situations, emotions, and circumstances we deal with daily and learn how to deal with it God's way through the scripture. Each day we have to face different problems that can cause us to lose control of our emotions, lose ourselves, and even lose our minds. But as my first Pastor use to say, "You don't have problems you have God!" God has given us the tools we need to be successful in our situations and our emotions and the most powerful tool that He has given us is the word of God, the sword, the good book! It is up to us to read, study, and hide the word of God in our hearts so that we are able to recall the scriptures in order to help us in our times of need.
The bible is a powerful resource that is living and breathing and stronger than any two edge sword. His word tells us exactly what we need to do in every situation in our lives. Without the direction of the word of God we will surely be lost as this is what gives us strength, peace, love, joy, and guidance.
Sometimes we can get overwhelmed when we think about taking on the challenge of reading the bible, with its 66 books and over a 1000 of chapters to tackle; but God doesn't expect us to "stuff ourselves" with His word. We are to digest it and ask for His understanding so that we may apply it to our daily lives.
