Most people don’t read the Bible. They put other things ahead of God in their lives. Their schedules are open for special events but tied down for God. Their time for the Lord most high God isn’t most important. They may profess they believe in God but if they aren’t reading the Bible than they don’t truly know Him. Their lives may seem full to them but in God’s eyes they are empty without His love. For the Bible is alive and God speaks through every word. How can God speak to us if we aren’t engaging with Him in His words? Can a Christian be one with God in prayer without His words in our lives? Are you missing out on God’s counsel in your life? Each day that you do your own thing and forget the Lord you are missing out on something greater. We will be much more in line with God and His teachings when we are reading the Bible than if we aren’t. When Jesus returns, would you rather be found doing His will or your own? We may say that we desire to do God’s will but if there aren’t fruits from these words than they are meaningless. If we aren’t reading His words than we are not on His path. Many people live their own lives outside of God because they don’t fear Him. “Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it.”
When we find ourselves mixing with things outside the faith, the Word does not profit us. It speaks against our sins and pains us to the core. If you truly desire to believe in Jesus, “hear His voice,” and “harden not your hearts” any longer. Find rest in God by reading the Bible. Let the words penetrate your hearts. If you do these things, you will feel the power of God through every word. Because His words are “sharper than any twoedged sword” your body will be convicted because of your sins. God knows our thoughts and His words will draw us to repentance. God is aware of our daily life and when we are available to Him, He will do miracles in our lives. Come to the Lord who sees through us all. Give your lives to Him, this day. Read the Bible daily and He will direct your path. Give your time to God and you will be blessed. You will come to know the Lord and be made strong in Him. Oh Lord, the Bible is holy, holy in my sight. Just as You, Lord are holy, holy. For many years I did miss out on Your wise counsel for my life. I did not know the right path to take until I started reading Your words. You convicted my soul to walk with You and not of the world. Your words spoke against my old life and changed how I lived. They have drawn me closer to You. I love You. Your words fulfill my life.
Hebrews 4:1,2,7,9,12,13 (KJV)
1 Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it.
2 For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.
7 Again, he limiteth a certain day, saying in David, To day, after so long a time; as it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts.
9 There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.
12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
13 Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.
