If you are serious about allowing God’s word to cleanse, renew and revive you then you need to commit to spending time in His word. At the * fill in how much time you are willing to commit to reading the Bible. Make it realistic!
If you don’t read your Bible on a regular basis, start with something easy like 15 minutes a day or a chapter a day. If you’re not accustomed to reading the Bible, I suggest you start with the New Testament. Start with either the gospel of Matthew or John.
Make sure you have a Bible you understand. If you’re like me and the King James Version (KJV) isn’t your thing, it’s okay. There are a ton of versions out there you can use. If you’re not sure what version is right for you, email me.
If you read your bible regularity add some time to study your Bible. That’s right, there is a difference between reading and studying. If you need some suggestions for the type of study material you need, just email me.
Prayer for Today
September 3, 2015
Heavenly Father, yesterday I prayer for a spiritual refreshing; a revival of the heart. It wasn’t just idols words, but a cry for help. There is so much going on and I feel overwhelmed by it all. I know I have my peace in You but I don’t feel peaceful. I know You have given me unmerited favor, but I look at my bills, my family and the world in general and I don’t feel like I’m being treated with favor.
Father, help me to operate in the truth of Your word and not the lies of the world system. Your word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path. Your word will lead me and guide me on the correct path for my life. Your word is my road-map to life. Forgive me for not spending time in Your word.
Today I commit to spending *_______________________________________ in Your word daily. Speak to me. Speak Your truth to me so that I may be clean, renewed and revived by You and for Your service. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
