Jan 27: My One Sentence Bible

What is My One Sentence Bible?

1-27-10:

Then God continued: “Do not be afraid, Daniel. Since the first day that you set your mind to gain understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to them.” Daniel 10:12

There are few messages within the Bible that top the overwhelming emotions I feel when I read this—that when one humbly learns to seek understanding before God, God hears; and then God responds. I wrap myself around these words of truth from God as I continue trying as best as I can to move throughout this confusing life.

Much love.
