We MUST read God’s Word!

As a leader and child of God, it is our duty and privilege to read the Bible.  Practice reading God’s word daily.  As you mediate and live by the principles written therein, you will stay on the right path and have good success.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 ESV

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.

Psalm 119:105 ESV

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.

Joshua 1:8 ESV

This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.

Although we know we should read the Word of God, too many times other things seem to get in the way of this most important area of our lives!  I had good intentions but it seemed I just couldn’t fit reading the Bible into my daily schedule.  I had too much to do and my intentions to read never came about!

Finally I realized that I can never be the person I want to be, if I don’t read the Bible and pray daily!  After all, I claim to be a Christian.  How could I become all God wants me to be if  I’m not allowing the Holy Spirit to teach me?  Now I have a morning routine that keeps me on track for the rest of the day.  If you struggle finding time to read the Word of God, make it a priority and set a schedule to read and pray.  Allow the Holy Spirit to  draw you to read His word.  Start with small chunks of time, and soon you will realize how precious and exciting it is to read God’s word and hear from Him.  Your days will go much smoother and your relationship with the Father will grow.

Waiting on God … It’s a good place

If you are waiting on God, keep waiting. Stay encouraged. Do not fear, it’s a good place to be. Trust the Lord!
Psalm 25:5 Lead me in Your truth and teach me,
For You are the God of my salvation;
On You I wait all the day.
Psalm 25:20-21 Keep my soul, and deliver me;
Let me not be ashamed, for I put my trust in You.
21 Let integrity and uprightness preserve me,
For I wait for You.
Psalm 27:14 Wait on the Lord;
Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your heart;
Wait, I say, on the Lord!
Waiting isn’t easy at times, especially when we don’t know what direction to take or how long we are supposed to wait for transformation to take place.  God doesn’t always tell us when or how, but waiting is a good place to be in, if you trust the Lord.  With trust there is peace.  We know that God said ALL things work together for good to those who love Him.  Keep praying, keep waiting and above all else, TRUST GOD TO FULFILL HIS PROMISES!  He always keeps His word.  You have nothing to fear.  Stay encouraged and wait on the Lord.  His timing is perfect.  Maintain peace, be joyful, gain knowledge and wisdom in the priceless waiting period.  You will learn and grow as you wait on the Lord. Whatever you are waiting for will come to pass!
