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.

    Faith comes by hearing and hearing the Word of God.
    The Word of God is lamp for my life and light for my path pslams 119:105.
    The Lord God instructed the people in O.T to teach it to your children.
    Psalms 119: 14. It would delight in your word then in riches of this world.
    Meditate on the Word day and night and let it not depart from your mouth.

    The Holy Bible is not for speed reading. I have did that and retained nothing, receiving no satisfaction. When reading my Bible today when come to up a verse I don’t understand I pull up commentaries on my Esword program and/or ask the Holy spirit to help me. Sometime it takes me maybe an hour or so to read one chapter.

    So true …. prepare to study scripture by praying for God to open your mind to the great truths you are about read. Then meditate and contemplate the life altering wisdom found in the bible , from cover to cover. What a unparalleled treasure and it’s free to all.

    I never knew what the book was though I had it with me all the while but when I decided to understand what it actually talks about after getting tired of reading other books,then I found out that the Bible is not just an ordinary book,its a POWER that changes all things.Its a mysterious book hidden from an ordinary mind(Prov.25:2).
