"There is no lie so sly as the one we tell ourselves...The self deception slithers in when we mistake appreciation for application or being touched with being changed. The tricky part is that hearing, all by itself, really does lend a certain satisfaction. The hearing itself can be satisfying...The Word of God, however, is meant to do more than penetrate. It's meant to activate. It can bore holes through obstacles. It can tumble defenses. It can plant wandering feet of clay in places of divine purpose. It can sanctify the sin sick and steady the aimless and confused. It can light a blazing torch in a black hole. Simply put, the Word was meant to work. And, through it, we were meant to bear fruit."
- Beth Moore (James study)
This is Truth. Truth hurts sometimes, but it's still the Truth.
Praying for activation of His truth in my daily life.
