Draw on His Power Within You

 ‘Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us.’

Here’s a link to today’s word. Bob Gass says,

‘There are words in your Bible which have so much power in them that they’re more effective than any therapy.’

  1. I don’t suppose you could recommend a bible for beginners? Maybe one for children? That was a very interesting passage. I’ve not read much of the bible but would like to try!

      The Good News Bible/Today’s English Bible (two names for the same translation) is in fairly simple english – originally written for people whose first language is not english.
      The following links are to sites designed for beginners to the bible:
      http://www.whatsoeveryoudo.org/
      http://www.tonyhj.ca/Invitation.html (lists several modern translations with a brief note)

      I’d suggest starting with one of the gospels – Mark’s is the shortest, John’s is quite different in style to the others, but has some beautiful passages – rather than starting at the beginning. Psalm 23 has been a favourite with people for centuries. The sermon on the mount in Matthew chapters 5 to 7 is another favourite – with the beatitudes (at the beginning of Matthew 5 being somewhat zen. (btw, I love the title of your blog)

      Good for you for wanting to try – I’ve never regretted the hours I’ve spent studying and meditating on the bible. Millions of people across the world and down through the centuries have drawn comfort, inspiration etc from its words; believing that its the word of God and that he speaks to them through it (I give a funny example of this on my about page).
      Above all, persevere and enjoy. The bible can be read on so many levels.
      Please feel free to ask again if you have any other questions or comments.
