April 4 – Judges 13-15

Below are my thoughts from the daily Bible reading of the West Side Church of Christ. Today’s reading comes from Judges 13-15. Before reading I invite you to pray and asked God to speak to you as you read his word.

Have you ever sought something from God and when he responded you didn’t feel it was a complete revelation? This is exactly how Manoah and his wife felt when an angel of the Lord appeared to her to tell them that they would finally have a child … if an angel appears to you don’t be surprised you might just become pregnant, it seems like so many times this is the reason for angelic appearances – Abraham and Sarah, Zachariah and Elizabeth, Joseph and Mary.

But the revelation to them was not complete and clear in their eyes, so they went back to God and asked for further instruction. How often do you do this? How often do you seek clarity from God? We often hear the beginning of what God has to say but fail to hear the complete story. Seek follow through. Seek clarity. Seek whole thoughts. It might surprise you of how clear God wants to speak with you.

At West Side we are beginning a new prayer partner campaign. We are asking people to join with us in praying daily for West Side. If you would like to join us please click here and subscribe to receive daily emails containing a short prayer request for West Side. We appreciate your partnership.
