Receiving The Oracles

Receiving The Oracles…

On the steep lower slope of Mt. Parnassus over the Corinthian Gulf stood the Temple of Apollo. In the rear of the temple was the Oracle of Delphi.

She would drink from a consecrated spring, then chew on laurel leaves, then enter an abnormal state and speak in unintelligible ranting. People would come from all over the ancient world seeking divine counsel.

We have something greater than the Oracle of Delphi. We have the living oracles of God. It’s the Scripture. The Bible is actually filled with the very oracles of heaven.

Every verse is filled with divine wisdom. It has everything you need to give you guidance of heaven and find God’s will for your life – to marry the right one, find success, peace, joy and become victorious, whatever you need.

You don’t have to travel thousands of miles by land and sea to find some stoned out-of-her-mind snake lady in mid-life crisis to tell you something that is worth nothing.

You have the very oracles of the living God right in your home, right at your fingertips. All you have to do is open and read it.

Praise the Lord, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. The Lord works righteousness and justice for all the oppressed. He made known his ways to Moses, his deeds to the people of Israel:The Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love. Psalm 103:1-8

Open the Bible, find a word from God for your life, an oracle from God to you. Now put it into action today.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
