Meditate on Scripture

By   •   March 1

reading Bible

Many of the difficulties we experience as Christians can be traced to a lack of Bible study and reading. We should not be content to skim through a chapter merely to satisfy our conscience. Hide the Word of God in your heart! A little portion well digested is of greater value to the soul than a lengthy portion scanned hurriedly. Do not be discouraged because you cannot understand it all. Go on reading. As you read, the Holy Spirit will enlighten the passages for you. Reading the Bible has a purifying effect upon the heart and mind.

Prayer for the day

Let the enlightenment of the riches of Your Word sink deep within my soul, Lord.

    Good advice. I find over the years that some little nugget I heard and remembered years ago (sometimes even in childhood) will all of a sudden come to mind and give me perspective and often an answer to my immediate problem. God is good. Thank you.

  2. Laura Speer says:

    i praise GOD for His word, it is what gets me through each day. I hunger for the closeness to my Father and Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, that His words brings me.

    I liked very much the suggestion to meditate in scriptures rather than only to read fast without understanding.
