"Were not our hearts burning inside us?" Luke 24:32
It should be our goal that when we read scripture, our hearts would burn inside us because we encounter the risen Lord. It is often said that the Bible is a compilation of God's love letters to us. He took thousands of years to tell us how much He loves us, and how He plans for us to be with Him one day.
In Psalm 139, our Father says that He knows everything about us, when we sit and when we stand. He places a hand of blessing on our heads, and He formed us with infinite care. In Genesis, we learn that He is truly our Father and He made us in His image. In 1 John 3:1, He says that it is His desire to lavish love on us because we are His children. Every good gift we receive comes from His hand (James 1:17) and He wants to show us great and marvelous things (Jeremiah 33:3). If we delight in Him, He will give us the desires of our heart (Psalm 37:4) for He is able to do more for us than we can ever dare to ask, hope or imagine (Eph. 3:20).
And that's just a few verses from His love letter to us. If we read the Bible everyday, we will find more treasures that we can hold on to.
Lord, it is truly exciting to get to know You and how much You love me! May I delve more and more in Your Word so You can reveal more and more to me!
