Read God’s Word

It has been a while since I have even attempted to read through the Bible in a year. This year, I am doing just that, along with my regular Bible reading (reading through more slowly) and a Bible study.

This has me going through five different sections of Scripture at present. I thought it could be a bit overwhelming but, so far, I am enjoying it. Each portion is different from each other and yet each serves a purpose.

I don’t know if I will do this every year. I’ll have to see how this year goes but, for this year, I am looking forward to seeing what God speaks to me, as I draw near to Him and ask Him to show me the way I should go and to help me to be faithful. This continues to be my constant prayer.

You may not have the time to read as much Scripture as I hope to this year, but I encourage you to read at least some Scripture every day. Even if it’s one verse that you meditate on each day, it will not return void.

Psalm 119:11 says, “Your word have I hid in my heart, that I might not sin against you (emphasis mine). Although sin is sometimes pleasurable for a season, it is the pure in heart that shall see God (Matthew 5:8).

Won’t you take time to read God’s Word today?

PS — Here is a link to Crossway where one of the menus at the top offer several reading plans.

  1. Sony,
    Agreed, apart from reading the word you cannot hide it in your heart Psm.119:11 nor live by it Matt. 4:4 nor do the will of God Matt. 7:21. Jesus said that apart from doing His Fathers will we cannot enter the kingdom of heaven. This year I am reading it cover to cover Rev. to Gen.
    Because the wicked contemplative corruption is running rampant in the church and in the world, anyone using their BUZZ verbiage like ( hearing from God and meditating ) unfortunately makes me nervous.
