“Read the Bible daily. Make it part of your everyday business to read and meditate on some portion of God’s Word. Gather your manna fresh every morning. Choose your own seasons and hours. Do not scramble over and hurry your reading. Give your Bible the best, and not the worst, part of your time. But whatever plan you pursue, let it be a rule of your life to visit the throne of grace and the Bible every day.” J. C. Ryle. How acquainted are you with your Bible? Do you wait till you get to Church on Sunday’s to hear the word preached or are you hungry enough to search the scriptures for yourself?
“The Bible should be approached with openness. We must be willing for it to dictate the terms of what we believe rather than filter it through denominational distinctions or ideas we just like.” Dr. Michael S. Heiser.
Watch this, we come to Him through His Word; His Word will refresh our souls. His Word is the compass of our lives. Now, what does a compass do? It gives you an indication of where you are and how to navigate to where you might be going; ladies and gentlemen, this is what the Bible does for you and me when we open the pages.
The Bible says, “Every Scripture has been written by the Holy Spirit, the breath of God. It will empower you by its instruction and correction, giving you the strength to take the right direction and lead you deeper into the path of godliness. Then you will be God’s servant, fully mature and perfectly prepared to fulfil any assignment God gives you.” Read 2 Timothy 3:16-17 (TPT). Watch this, God speaks to you and me primarily through His Word; the greatest means of God’s guidance is His Word – the Bible.
My Father in Heaven, thank You for giving us Your Word – a lamp to my feet and a light to my path, and for that, I am eternally grateful in the name of Jesus. Amen.
We write. You read. Be encouraged.
