Open His Word, You Won’t Regret It
“For whatever was written in the past was written for our instruction, so that we may have hope through endurance and through the encouragement from the Scriptures.” Romans 15:4
Crawling out of bed, you find yourself sleepy eyed and already contemplating the day ahead. You get your coffee and Bible and sit down to read but you feel a longing to reach for your phone or your to-do list instead. Or maybe you’re the girl who feels she has no time to lend to studying Scripture. Still, there are women who have plenty of time, yet fill up their minutes, hours, and days with other endeavors. And as our minds ponder minuscule things, the Word of God cries out, “Come and feast.”
All of us have struggled with a lack of desire for God’s Word at some point in our lives. And if you haven’t, you will. Almost anything can draw us into a dry season—suffering, broken relationships, sin struggles, an easy life—you name it. For most of us, the root of our lack of desire is in our lack of knowledge regarding how needy we are.
We need God. We need his Word to revive our souls (Psalm 119:107). Scripture continually brings life to our dry bones, making us more and more like Jesus. It reminds us of where our hope lies—in Christ alone. And in the precious Word, we find deep encouragement for our hearts. The more we feast, the more we will crave our daily Bread.
I’ve never once regretted studying the Bible, and I’m certain neither will you.
So open His Word today, friends. Open it and feast.
Father, we need you. May we know it in a real way today. Bring revival to our hearts and cause us to desire you above all things. May we lay aside all distractions and make time in your Word a priority in our lives. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
What did you read/study today? We’d love to hear!
