The Hebrew root of the word “puthach” translated as unfolding in the NIV means: to open wide, loosen, plough or begin. Whichever of these we apply to this verse, God’s word can only be interpreted to us by God’s Spirit. As Jesus said, “the words I speak to you, are spirit and they are life.” John 6:63. If we want them to be a part of our life today we need to humbly ask Him and then listen with our hearts for His unfolding to give us light.
Instead of wordless I thought Word Wednesday might be more of a blessing for my readers. I love to blend my photos with God’s word. This is my favorite verse and image from the previous week.
Our Old Bibles
Our old Bibles never die They just sit on shelves Waiting for the day when we Will read them for ourselves For when the word of God is planted In a listening heart It grows a little day by day Till thoughts and actions start To change as Jesus comes to rule In ordinary ways His love replacing selfishness And hopelessness with praise Our Old Bibles by Peter Caligiuri copyright 2022 all rights reserved.
