time alone with God’s Word. Besides the
spiritual growth we will gain from study,
we will also come to know Him better.
Reading His word brings us in touch with Him. Jesus tells us in John 14:7 – “If you had
known Me, you would have known my Father also.” Just studying the life of Jesus will help us
to know God better.
God’s help, we can draw closer to Him through prayer, meditation, nature, and study. “But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
and in His law doth he meditate day and night.” Psalm 1:2
I Tim.4:13,15 –
“Give attention to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine… meditate on these
things; give yourself wholly to them.”
Regardless of our circumstances
we can rely on God’s unchanging character.
God is good. God loves me. God is with me. God knows my problems. God
8:31(b) tells us, “If God is for us, who can be against us?”
Make a resolution to slowdown and study Gods word
not just read it.
