God Gave His Word

We all need encouragement! The best place to find the best sort of encouragement is in the Bible. God gave us His Word to help us get through life. Reading the Bible helps me make sure my words, thoughts, and actions are acceptable to God. Scripture keeps me focused on my goal of being the kind of person God expects me to be as a Christian. All of us need some accountability in our lives to help motivate us to be godly.

My particular favorite book of the Bible is the Psalms! I read through the Psalms once a month, every month of the year. Over time, it’s not hard to become familiar with the writers and specific verses that seem to fit a particular time in life. God provided His Word to teach us, to encourage us, and to exhort us to righteousness. His Word never returns void the Bible says in Isaiah 55:11:

“So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.”

Let me encourage you and exhort you to find out what the Bible says! Don’t let it continue to be a mystery. Read the Old Testament to get the history of the Hebrew people. Read the New Testament to learn about the life of Jesus and His teachings. Study the letters of Paul for insight and wisdom on Biblical principles and practice.

When you read, take notes. Jot down the verses that speak to your heart. Then you can refer to them later, and even memorize them so you can bring them to mind when you most need them.

If you feel a lack of understanding, pray for discernment and wisdom to understand. If you are seeking God, He will be found the Bible tells us in Jeremiah 29:13:

“And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.”

I make it a practice to read through the Bible once a year. It takes diligence and effort every day. It’s a worthy goal! Make it your goal as well!

I recently started creating Scripture Photo magnets at my Zazzle store. I hope you will stop by and pick one up to be an encouragement to you!
