So I gave my attention to the Lord God to seek Him by prayer and supplications, with fasting, sackcloth and ashes.
Yesterday was a good day for me, as I read my Bible it lifted me up, inspiring me into prayer which then inspired me as I read more scripture – it was a spiritual spiral. Our Bible is not just a good source of knowledge, it is literally alive and is able to commune with our spirit.
In our scripture verse today we see the result of the previous verse, where Daniel read Jeremiah. The Word of God inspired Daniel into action; it drove him to his knees in prayer and fasting before Almighty God. Scripture is good “for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness,” (2 Timothy 3:16). But here in the example of Daniel we see that scripture is a ready source of inspiration, for the man or woman of God.
Dear reader, does your daily Bible reading inspire you? Does it lift you up, driving you to prayer? I find that such divine inspiration opens the doors of our heart, that the light of His truth shines upon us and also through us for all to see. I would urge you to seek His inspiration, ask Him today! (Matthew 7:7).
