When you read God’s Word, you must constantly be saying to yourself, “It is talking to me, and about me.” Soren Kierkegaard
The statues of the Lord are trustworthy, making wise the simple. The precepts of the Lord are right, giving joy to the heart. Psalm 19:7-8
“No other Book has had a greater impact and influence on the course of human history than God’s word.” It is a lamp unto our feet. It is power, and authority. This love sonnet contains the eternal truths of God written to restore and transform mankind.
John Quincy Adams once said, “So great is my veneration for the Bible that the earlier my children begin to read it the more confident will be my hope that they will prove useful citizens of their country and respectable members of society. I have for many years made it a practice to read thought the Bible once every year.”
God told Joshua upon his commission to take the nation of Israel into the promised land to “Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do.” Joshua 1:8 NLT.
God commanded Joshua to meditate on His word daily. It is the same for us. Our mighty God wants us to dig deeply into His word daily so we can experience Him more fully. Sink into the word, cover your bodies, spirits and souls with the life-giving Word of God. Make it a priority stay in His word for it is life unto our very life.
