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!

Regards,

Phil Edwards
CEO

They stabilise the soil and provide a home for the birds and other wildlife. In the 231 years …Read More

Preparing for Marriage, Not Just Your Wedding

Most couples spend so much time planning for their wedding day, but very little time planning for their marriage. I know, because several years ago that young bride to be was me.

How Could a God of Love Allow the Christchurch Massacre? – Jeff Vines

We have truly suffered a major tragedy in New Zealand. I say, “we” because although I am an American by birth, I lived in New Zealand for ten years and in fact raised my two children in this great country. So, I mourn as you mourn and question as you question.
