Benefits of Reading the Bible Every Day

Benefits of Reading the Bible Every Day by Elizabeth GeorgeAs you look ahead, what do you anticipate facing in 2019? Are you struggling with your roles and responsibilities? Are you at a crossroad in your career? Do you need direction in dealing with a family member, a workmate, or your finances? Or are you needing some help with all of the above? Then you need wisdom—God’s wisdom. Well, wait no longer!

Blessings of Wisdom

God promises you wisdom—and it’s free and readily available. Your job is to pray, seek, search, and dig for God’s wisdom in His Word. God’s job—and His promise to you—is to give you all the wisdom you ask for…and all the wisdom you need. 

Do you realize what this means? It means that whatever issue or problem you are facing, you don’t have to grope around in the dark, hoping you will somehow stumble upon answers. You don’t have to stab at a solution and hope you made the right choice—the wise choice, all the time fearing that maybe you made the wrong choice. No, you have a surer way to tackle life’s problems—and gain God’s peace of mind in the process!

Benefits of Daily Bible Reading

Start today by reading Proverbs 1. Tomorrow, read chapter 3. On January 3, read chapter 3, and so on … and by the end of the month, you’ll have read the entire book. 

As you daily make your way through Proverbs, starting in chapter 1, you can’t miss the truth that evil does its worst in secret and solicits new followers in the dark. But God’s wisdom is public. As verses 20 and 21 note, “Wisdom shouts in the street, she lifts her voice in the square; at the head of the noisy streets she cries out; at the entrance of the gates in the city she utters her sayings.”

There is so much to tend to, worry about, fear, and beware of. Every minute of every day can be full of fear and charged with anxiety. But God and His Word quell all our fears. “But whoever listens to me [wisdom] will dwell safely, and will be secure, without fear of evil. (Proverbs 1:33)

Whenever you need wisdom, you can pray to God, ask of God, look to God’s Word…and wisdom will be given to you!

RESPOND

Father of all wisdom, as I think about this year and all that is planned, all that is necessary— and all the temptations and interruptions and crises that may come my way, I ask You afresh, “Lord, give me wisdom! I need it to manage this year in a way that pleases You and bears the mark of Your wisdom on it. Amen.”
