To peruse all of the 31 Days of Quiet posts thus far,
Tx for these comparisons, Kel. I love using Bible Gateway. And the message version of these are really wonderful. God used Mt. 11 in my life earlier when I knew I was to come to Christ, alone, and put away all Christian books for awhile. Tha'ts a tall order for an author, but it was just the Lord and I, just His Word and I. It was a very special time. I'll be sorry when your 31 days are over.LoveLynni
Oh how i love God's Word! It always amazes me how a book I've read since a child is ever new. I love writing out Scriptures, personalizing them just for me. "God is Pamela's very present help in her time of need."
Lynni- I am so glad you are enjoying the series…it is amazing how God uses his word to encourage us to draw near to Him in various ways…your fast from other written works, besides the Word fits in well with tomorrow's topic 🙂
Pamela- Thanks for stopping by…yes God's Word is my lifeline, too! I love how the Holy Spirit can illuminate familiar passages…personalizing Scripture is a great practice and fresh way to interact with God and his word!
I love looking up other translations as a way to gain new insight into God's word. Of course, I really love King James because it is so pretty. But I have often found that the NIV clarifies text, and the Message seems to simplify the text. Whenever I look up scripture on line, I use Bible Gateway or Crosswalk.com (actually I use Crosswalk more frequently), and I almost always compare translations. So much comes to life as I do. Hugs,Kelly
Kelly- Thanks for reminding us about Crosswalk.com…I love how God brings His word to life for us and am thankful for the abundant translations He has provided!
