God, I want Your Word to be deeply implanted in me so that I not only know the truth, but also express it in the way I live.
I call this to mind,
And therefore I have hope:
The Lord's mercies never cease,
For His compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness. (Lamentations 3:21-23)
Take a moment to affirm the truth of these words from Scripture and ask God to make them a growing reality in your life.
The spirit of a man is the lamp of the Lord, searching the inward depths of his being. (Proverbs 20:27)
O Lord, what is man that You know him, or the son of man that You think of him? Man is like a breath; his days are like a passing shadow. (Psalm 144:3-4)
Eye has not seen, ear has not heard, nor have entered the heart of man the things that God has prepared for those who love Him. (1 Corinthians 2:9)
A rebuke goes deeper into a wise man than a hundred lashes into a fool. (Proverbs 17:10)
Whoever loves instruction loves knowledge, but he who hates correction is stupid. (Proverbs 12:1)
Lord, I thank You that You know me intimately and still care for me. I thank You for what You are preparing for those who love You, and I ask that I would learn from rebukes and accept correction.
