Draw Closer to God, Through His Word

Dear friend,

Would you say that you hear from God?

Often times we might think God is silent because we haven’t seen that big bold sign we’re looking for. But often we miss what He’s trying to tell us because we’re too busy! The real question is—are we actually listening?

The best place to start is God’s Word. William Wilberforce said it well—that we ought to:

  • Admit it as the Word of God
  • Commit it to our hearts and minds
  • Submit to it
  • Transmit it to the world

If you want to know God’s will for your life, start with His Word.

The Word for Today will help you understand and apply it every day. My prayer is that God will use these daily devotions to challenge your thinking and draw you closer to Him.

May God bless you richly as you journey with Him!


Phil Edwards
