“I will meditate on your precepts and fix my eyes on your ways.” Psalm 119:15 ESV
God’s Word is not only a journey of understanding Who He is but also a journey of understanding Whose we are in Christ. As believers, we have been given many promises of God from His Word that will transform our mind and align our hearts with what He says, instead of what we think.
Today, we’re going to focus on God’s love for us, our security and safety in Him, and our significance and value as believers. I’ve personalized the Scriptures so as you read them, you can position yourself within these promises of God.
Before we start, I’d encourage you to grab your Bible and prayer journal (or just a piece of paper) and write down one promise that hits home. Look up the verse referenced in context, journal about what it means to you, pray it over yourself, and continue to meditate on that promise of God. Let it take root in your soul!

Which verse prompted your heart to respond as you read it? Hebrews 4:12 tells us that the Word of God is living and active. What words made you feel alive? Again, I would encourage you to spend a few moments praying over yourself and asking God to reveal His Truth to you more. Meditate on the verse you chose today. Put it on a sticky note or jot it down on your phone. Be still and let the roots grow deep. Amen.
