Word Wednesday .::71

Word Wednesday is posted every Wednesday. Each week I post a scripture that I've read that week that has spoken to me in a fresh way. I believe that if we read God's Word every day, He will give us at least one scripture every week that will impact us. Sharing Scripture with each other is like iron sharpening iron. Leave a comment and share a scripture that has impacted you this week.

Here's the scripture that stuck this week:

Deuteronomy 29:29 The Message

God, our God, will take care of the hidden things but the revealed things are our business. It's up to us and our children to attend to all the terms in this Revelation.

I've heard some call this the "cop-out verse", but I don't think it is. I am always extremely suspicious of anyone who seems to have all the answers, because no one does. I heard someone say once that arrogance is never a measurement of intelligence. The second half of this verse is where I was focused. God gives us visions and revelations, and we must respond to them. There's no room for cop-out there.

What's your Word?

Good word, Gary ... I get so sick at my stomach when I hear (frequently) "oh that sermon was so basic, that was so shallow, I want deep stuff, I want deep revelation" ... when I take a step back, knowing full well that myself (or none of the folks saying those things) are even close to taking care of the most basic, simple revelations already given us.
