For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. – Hebrews 4:12 ESV
One of the most powerful ways to grow in our relationship with God is to read His Word. It is through His Word that God reveals Himself to us that we might know Him personally. The Scriptures grant us guidance on how to walk out this Christian life and provide comfort when we face times of sorrow. In addition to that, it is the very Word of God that protects us from evil. Ephesians 6:17 calls the Word of God the Sword of the Spirit and urges believers to pick it up and use it to fight against spiritual attack.
The Word of God offers freedom, healing and hope. I have yet to face an issue God did not address in His Word. For this reason, I have made every effort to ensure I make reading my Bible a daily habit because I know how desperately I need God’s Word and Truth to make it through each day. However, I also understand that reading the Bible can be completely intimidating. So in today’s video “Where to Start Reading the Bible” I’m sharing my top 5 places to start reading and tips on getting the most out of your time in God’s Word. Enjoy.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for Your Word of truth. I pray for a heart that is desperate for your Word and seeks You daily. In Jesus Christ Name I pray. Amen.
