You’ve almost made it to the end of your first week. How is it going? I know. I know. Hang in there.
Yesterday we talked about how important praying is while fasting. It really can make all the difference. Another secret to successful fasting is reading God’s Word.
The Word of God is one of the chief ways God speaks into our life.
The Bible really is relevant. When we apply our belief with God’s Word we can receive a revelation which can speak directly to our lives.
The only problem with reading God’s Word is where to begin. I would recommend reading the One Year Bible program with Real Life Church. It’s great.
Something else which can make reading God’s Word really work is to not try and take everything in at once. If you are reading the One Year Bible you will read about 4 chapters a day. That’s too much to soak in and apply. Don’t even try. Instead, look for one verse you feel really applies to you. Then, on your way to work, waiting in the elevator, waiting in line at Starbucks, or wherever think about it. Trust me. It will change your life.
- Make a commitment to read God’s Word everyday
- Make a decision to find one verse every day you feel you can think about and apply.
