The Bible is the breath of God,
profitable for teaching
it’s a reproof and a correction
to use for righteous training.
It’s the Living Word of God,
it makes us competent and able
it equips us for good works
keeping our lives in Him stable.
It is a lamp to our feet,
a light unto our path
when we choose to follow it
it will keep us from God’s wrath.
It’s to be used for mediation,
all our living nights and days
it is the Bread of Life
that shows us our evil ways.
It instructs us on endurance,
encourages us in the faithful race
it persuades us to continue
to seek and find God’s face.
It is living and it active,
it’s as sharp as a two edge sword
it pierces through the heart
so our souls can be restored.
It’s a wonder to the open eye,
out of the law comes salvation
it’s the pure spiritual milk
spilling forth God’s revelation.
It’s to be stored in our hearts,
it will keep us from sin
it’s to be used in our daily battles
so over the enemy we will win.
It will guard our hearts and minds,
it will keep us in perfect peace
and we should always keep . . .
our Bible’s within close reach.
But, for some it sits on their shelf,
other’s shove it in a drawer
and most just don’t make the time
to read the Bible anymore!
King James Version
“Thy word have I hid in mine heart,
that I might not sin against thee.”
Deborah Ann Belka
