Holy Trembling

Holy Trembling

But this is the one to whom I will look: he who is humble and contrite in spirit and trembles at my Word.  Isaiah 66:2

Are you someone who trembles at God’s word?

If all the unused Bibles were picked up at one time, it would cause a dust storm so severe that it would eclipse the sun! Why is it that so many Christians are biblically illiterate? Could it be that we have exchanged reading our Bibles toward an encounter with God and have settled for simply checking off Bible reading on our to-do list?

Only an encounter with the manifest presence of Christ will lead your spirit to the place of holy trembling.

If your Bible reading has become boring, monotonous, or meaningless, something needs to change. God intends to lead you to an encounter with Christ when you read the Bible that will bring you to your knees, gasping for breath in wide-eyed wonder.

Father God, I repent. I repent of making Bible reading a religious activity rather than enjoying it as a time to encounter Christ.
