I often read Scripture and that’s about all I do with it. Sometimes, I even skim through it, not really taking it in, because I’ve read it before. I think that’s because my mind is constantly trying to save time, being busy with life’s demands.
Words on there own sometimes don’t emphasize their importance and true meaning. Having a devotional like Priceless Stones: 42 Days of Hebrew Promises for Kingdom Living has changed this for me. Learning a little more about select words in a given Scripture really helped me see the word, as well as the scripture in whole, for it’s meaning and intended message.
Now, I will use my Strong’s Concordance more often. I have a bulky one that I used to verify the meanings provided for some of the words in this book. To make it easier, I will use the one in BlueLetterBible.com in the future. Not as difficult to carry around!
Each day’s consists of the ‘Hebrew word of the day’, a piece of Scripture, and a short devotional. Following these, you’ll be encouraged to take it further with a prayer prompt, personalized declaration, and questions for you to answer regarding the application of what you just read.
When I first discovered this book, I thought it might be a little too thick of a study for me as a working mom. I need short studies that I can fit in each morning in between my shower and tending to our little guy, all before going to the day job. However, I found it to be just right at 4-5 pages of interesting and convicting spiritual guidance each day.
It’s really important to dig into God’s Word, so that you’ll really discover all it has to offer you as a child of God. I encourage you to use this devotional or another similar Bible study to help you do that digging!
I received a copy of Priceless Stones: 42 Days of Hebrew Promises for Kingdom Living from the publisher through BookCrash.com in exchange for my honest review.
About the Book
Priceless Stones is a 42-day Hebrew-based devotional. Each day focuses on one verse or passage from the Old Testament and translates one or more Hebrew words from the original text and then leads the reader to discover a new revelation about the goodness of God and the wonder of living in His Kingdom. Each daily meditation incorporates personal life experience from the life of the author and reinforces the message with a declaration and prayer. The book is fully footnoted; all of the referenced verses are indexed; and the devotional includes the added bonus of Hebrew-to-English and English-to-Hebrew glossaries.
