Reading the Bible is an important part of how we can grow in our faith, but we know many people question why the Bible is not relevant for today. With its old language and confusing references, it can feel irrelevant or disconnected. But these Scripture meditations are meant to help us bridge that disconnect and encounter reasons why the Bible is relevant.


God Will Lead You

Find yourself wondering if you’ll ever feel like life isn’t chaotic or out of your control? It sometimes feels like you’re stuck in a rut, and your wheels are spinning mud everywhere, with no hope of gaining traction and moving on to a better place.

As we work through the habit of discernment, we find that we’re often faced with anxiety or that we become indecisive in the face of uncertainty.

But know this: God will lead you through anything—even the muddiest of ruts. 

We have a God who is strong and who leads us in that strength. 

If you need a little help believing this today, read on for this short Scripture meditation on Exodus 15:13!
