Make plans this New Year to read the Bible!
Just start. Start anywhere. Pick a book of the Bible and read a chapter a day or begin a bible study. Make it your number one priority this year to hear from God regularly through his word.
I do. I hear from God sometimes daily.
It didn’t start that way. At first I would just record on a calendar the verses I read each day and eventually I began to write down what I was hearing and learning as well. Finally I began to get teachings and now I hear something profound from The Holy Spirit every time I open up the word.
When I first began to seek the Holy Spirit and his gifts and his power and his guidance, I asked him every day to give me a hunger for his word. He did!!! Almost 30 years years later I can look back and see how God answered my prayer. I began leading and writing my own Bible studies 15 years ago.
God says “if you “SEEK ME, YOU WILL FIND ME.”
Finding God is everything. I woke up this morning quoting Jeremiah 33:3 and this is what came to my mind. “Call to me and I will tell you something wonderful that you do not know.” God knows everything and wants to reveal to you everything. Nothing is hidden from him. He is the beginning and the end of everything.
There is no knowledge past him.
There is no wisdom or understanding beyond God. He is everything and it pays to get to know him through his word.
If God is the beginning and the end of knowledge, wisdom and understanding and He is willing to share these with those who seek him? Why wouldn’t we seek him in his word.
Let this be your New Year’s Resolution
Meditate on the word of God day and night. If God promises to prosper you and his word is true….
