Where are you going.. In His Word 10-13-16?

Do you feel as if you are getting somewhere in your daily Bible reading? Or do you just read it for the fact that you said you would read it in a year? Or maybe you read it because you ‘know you should’? Some people just wander around randomly in the 
Word.  Today I want to look at where we are going as we dig into the Word of God and what do we hope to find?
 For the word of the Lord is right, and all His work is done in truth.
Psalm 33:3-5

Some read for peace… it works at least as long as you can focus on the Word during your reading times. Now if you are one of the stay at home moms who are out there trying to get the read in quickly and get back to teaching or cleaning up after your little ones then don’t give up! Think on what you read and you will go somewhere even if it’s just a quick read when you first get up. Maybe you don’t read at all because you do not think you have time to read the whole Bible so you quit right away? Maybe you do not know what to do once you read the Bible, like what is next? The Word tells us to think on these things…in Philippians 4:8. Why not look it up and find out what it says to think on?

That is actually why I started writing my devotional; because people kept telling me they had no time to read the Word. So my 365 days In His Love was born of necessity to get people reading and thinking about what they read.  The important thing is to get the Bible into your head, then you can go on to live the life that God has planned for you to live with the guidance you received from His Word. If we do not read the Word of God how will we know what to do when times get rough, or out of control? What will we do when we don’t know what to choose in life? We get into His Word and follow His directions. Seek Him while He is available, get help for what you need to stand strong in the world you live in.

With my whole heart I have sought You;
Oh, let me not wander from Your commandments!
11 Your word I have hidden in my heart,
That I might not sin against You.
12 Blessed are You, O Lord!
Teach me Your statutes. Psalm 119:10-12

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.

We are given hope for the tomorrow we live and the guidance of what to do to live life according to God’s will in the Bible, His Word. So when I ask you where you are going in His Word I want you to think about where in His Word you are reading, and how that is going to grow your life to be more like Him; that is what your answer should be! That you are going down the path that God put before you to become more like Jesus if at all humanly possible to do so!
If we expect to walk the walk we need to talk the talk, or so they say but I think we will never be able to do either if we do not read the Word in the first place.
Let’s make it a plan today to start reading daily, but not just reading it applying it to our lives and becoming that wonderful person of God that He created us each to be!
28 Observe and obey all these words which I command you, that it may go well with you and your children after you forever, when you do what is good and right in the sight of the Lord your God. Deuteronomy 12:28

Dear Heavenly Father, help us all to get into Your Word diligently and deliberately. Thank you for providing such easy reading for our daily reads whether straight from King James Version or one of the many styles of written word put into the version of our choice. Thank you Lord for giving us life , in Your word, in Jesus name, amen.
