A Daily Devotion for Thursday, July 6

2 Peter 1:20-21

Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet's own interpretation of things. For prophecy never had its origin in the human will, but prophets, though human, spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit is our direct link with God. Access to God through the Holy Spirit does not seem common in the OT, and changed dramatically and fundamentally with Jesus' death and resurrection. So it is interesting to hear Peter's explanation of the source of the prophets' inspiration. He knows, at this point, that he is inspired by the same Holy Spirit as his forefathers. He also has another source of inspiration: he was an eyewitness! This makes me wonder, to what am I an eyewitness, or to what have I been an eyewitness, which could serve as inspiration to me in my faith? What has God shown me directly, that I may have missed, or am missing at this moment?

Holy Lord, help me to see all you would have me see. I am an eyewitness, living in your creation. I am filled with your Holy Spirit. Help me to be inspired, to deepen my faith, and to be a holy example. Amen
