Why You Need to Read the Bible
The Bible is no ordinary book. The words within its pages are like medicine to your soul. It has the power to change your life because there is life in the Word!
When you discover the power and truth of God's Word, you will begin to see changes in your life that only this truth can bring. You will also learn how to recognize the lies that the enemy tries to bring against you.
If you are just starting to study the Bible or feel intimidated by it, don't think you have to read it all at once or understand everything right away. Be patient with yourself. The important thing is that you start somewhere and stay determined to stick with it. Because every time you study the Bible and pay attention to what you're reading, you're learning something.
Proverbs 4:20 says, "My son attend to my words., " This is important to understand because attending is more than just reading - it means to meditate on the Scripture or roll it around over and over in your mind.
As we spend time reading and meditating on the Word of God and learn to agree with it above all else, we will be filled with the life and healing power of God.
Prayer Starter: God, thank You so much for the life-giving power of Your Word! As I read and study it, teach me what You want me to know and bring Your healing power into my life.
