Reading the Word

Psalm 119:18
Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.

2 Timothy 2:15
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

1 Corinthians 2:13
Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

Read the Bible.

We all know that and even try to. But how often does it become just words? Boring even, especially if you are reading in the begats.

AND then, there are the times when we read over a verse and it lodges in our hearts. We KNOW what it says for us specifically. As if the Lord wrote it with this day and moment in mind.

Life. Alive. It is a living Word. Jesus, God in the flesh, the Word of God. Come to bring us the Way, the Truth, and the Life.

AS you sit down to read the Word, ask Holy Spirit to open your eyes. Teach what the Word says, and place it in your heart.

Memorize scripture that speaks to you, meditate on the Word of God. Let it sink down into the deep parts of your soul and spirit. Let it bring life to you.

Read the Bible, wash in the Word of life, and revel in His Goodness.
