A simple Scripture print given to me by a friend sits on my kitchen window—and when my arms are elbow-deep in soapy water, it calls me to prayer. Its words are the hope and declaration of my heart: “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord” (Joshua 24:15).
In my mind, the word ‘will’ is all uppercase. Not because it is my current reality, but because I believe by faith that one day, it will be. And this verse is a daily reminder and encouragement to keep sowing and praying and standing firm in Christ’s victory; to keep lifting up the shield of faith over my household as I believe for salvation for those I love.
Perhaps this is one of the reasons why God instructed the Israelites to inscribe His Word on the doorposts of their homes and gates; to weave the Scriptures into their daily rhythms, talking about them as they went about their tasks (Deuteronomy 11:19-20). He knew the power of keeping His truth ever before us—visible, audible, known.
My print daily calls me to intercession, but it also reminds me just how much my heart needs God’s truth. How I need to read it, hear it, declare it, and believe it—choosing His voice above all others so that I can experience His life flowing in me and through me.
What Scriptural truth do you need to remind your heart of today?
