Wrestling with Scripture

July 27th, 2016

I am someone who likes to wrestle with Scripture.

Not wrestling in the traditional sense where two opponents face off to throw the other one down and pin them to the mat.

I wrestle with Scripture to try and understand it. Often I stand looking at a Bible passage and I prayefully ask God for meaning and how to apply it.

My goal is not to fight it off and be the victor. My goal is to be won over by it and allow it to pin me to the mat.

I need my heart to be softened by Scripture. I need my mind renewed by God’s Word. I need to be the man who God wants me to be.

That is why I am someone who likes to wrestle with Scripture. How about you?

God Bless,
Dave
