Study the Word of God Daily
Chosen by God!
To gain godly wisdom, we must sincerely and earnestly search for it. Some Christians fail to study the Scriptures and even refuse to listen when God’s truth is being taught by godly leaders because they may not understand the treasure that is in His Word. Another reason is lack of understanding what they have read. We can ask the Holy Spirit for help.
"Open my eyes, that I may see Wondrous things from Your law." (Psalm 119:18 NKJV)
One of the main reasons we should read the Word daily is so we can become more like Him. We also read it to avoid making decisions that are sin based.
"Your word I have treasured and stored in my heart, That I may not sin against You." (Psalm 119:11 AMP)
The more we know about the Word the more we can apply the Word to every area of our lives.
When I first began reading the Word I found it hard to understand. I was using the King James Version of the Bible. I purchased a read the Bible in a year in a version I could better understand, (I used The Living Bible version), and it helped me tremendously. After that year I was better able to understand the King James version and began reading multiple versions of the Bible in order to gain a better understanding and insight into what I was reading. I also asked the Holy Spirit to increase my understanding and give me insight as I read.
For some the Word may intimidate so they stay away from it. Sometimes it’s as simple as thinking they don’t need to know the Word. The cares of this world and wrong priorities could cause others to not make time for the Word. There are many reasons why people fail to study the Scriptures and refuse to listen to truth. Sometimes they don’t want to face the conviction it brings or take responsibility for the changes they must make. Whatever the reason, as believers, we must make the Word of God a priority. It’s only through knowing His Word that true transformation can happen in our lives.
