Scriptures Can Change Your Life
It can seem kind of strange to think that reading some scriptures could actually change your life. You’re probably thinking, winning a million dollars or something like that could change my life, but some scriptures, probably not. You might be thinking the Bible is old and hard to understand…how could something like that change my life?
Well, believe it or not, the Bible has the power to change your life. In Hebrews it describes the word of God like this, “For the word of God is full of living power. It is sharper than the sharpest knife, cutting deep into our innermost thoughts and desires. It exposes us for what we really are.” – Hebrews 4:12 (NLT) The Word of God is powerful. It has the power to change things in your life.
One of the best decisions you can ever make is to spend some time getting to know what the Word of God has to say. It can literally change your life!
