I READ: Psalm 119: 159-168

When we read a letter or email from someone we love, we will definitely read it carefully.  However, if the letter comes from someone else we don’t know, we won’t pay as much attention.  It also applies to when we read the Word of God.  If we read it only because we are Christians, who feel that we have the obligation to read the Bible.  As the result, we won’t get anything out of it.  What we read is only a series of words that have no meaning or even power in it.  By contrast, if we read the Bible as we read a letter of God’s love, we will read it with longing in our hearts to know Him more, meditate on it, and even begin to declare and do it in our lives.  His Word will empower, comfort, guide and bring us victory.

I DECLARE: Psalm 119: 167 – My soul keeps Your testimonies, And I love them exceedingly.

I DO: What action will I take today after meditating on the Word of God?

I PRAY: Pray as guided by the Holy Spirit.
