I am presently reading Hebrews in The Passion translation of the Bible. In the 3rd chapter there is a section entitled “Secrets from Psalm 95”. It starts with, “This is why the Holy Spirit says….” There is a footnote tied to this passage. It reads, “Notice the truth that the Bible is the Holy Spirit of God speaking to us.”

I’ve always known that the Bible is God’s Word and that the Word is alive and active. Somehow I’d never made the connection until this morning that these words of the Bible are The Holy Spirit speaking to me each and every day as I read them. I use to read the Bible each and every day so that I could read through the Bible in a year’s time. I would measure the success of my Bible reading by this accomplishment. Today I read the Bible in much shorter passage because I want to grasp the full message God has for me in it. It seemed to be growth I thought to do this, but knowing that the Holy Spirit is speaking to me brings forth another one of those intimate moments with Him I just hadn’t understood.

Further into this chapter it says, “They wandered in their hearts just like they do with their feet….” This too hit me. I have questioned so many times in my heart if God were working. I’d walk as though I believed, but in my heart I didn’t trust. God has been showing me how important it is to TRUST Him fully. I know I’m not done with this lesson, but I praise the Holy Spirit for opening my eyes to this reality today. How much I love Him!
