Truth Tuesday – Allowing God to Interrupt, Rearrange and Redirect The Heart

by Kathy

Proverbs 4 20

What does your devotional time look like?  As you read the Bible, do you pay attention and listen to what God is wanting you to tuck into your heart…wanting you to live out?

Several years ago, I learned from Lysa TerKeurst, Founder of Proverbs 31 Ministry, three life changing questions to ask myself as I read the Bible each day.  These questions help me to not only focus on what I am reading, but they also allow God’s words to penetrate into my heart, with a transforming effect.

  1. God, what plans have I made for today that this verse needs to interrupt?
  2. God, what thoughts did I bring in from yesterday that this verse needs to rearrange?
  3. God, what heart attitudes have I been carrying that this verse needs to redirect?

Each day, as you read your Bible, take a little time to ask yourself these questions.  Listen to what God has to show you and then obey it.

Luke 11:28 says, “[Jesus] replied, ‘Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it.'”

Have a grace full week~
