Consistency in reading the word

Consistency in reading the word

How often do you read your Bible? Do you have an online Bible or a hard copy? The Bible is a library of books, written by people inspired by God. It consists of stories of people, true stories. It contains the mind of God, the state of man, the way of salvation and the happiness of believers. 

I used to think the Bible was difficult to read until I came across Ephesians 1:17-18, where Paul prays that God gives us the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him. This caught my attention for a moment, and I started praying for wisdom and revelation everything I read a passage in the Bible, even a verse repetitive times, I discover something new and fresh from it.

Job 32:8 says, “It is the Spirit in a man, the breath of the Almighty that gives him understanding” Look, we don’t need to stress much on how we’ll understand the Bible, As long as we have His Spirit in us, that’s enough to make us understand the Bible.

How then can one build consistency in reading the Bible?

Nowadays we have online study sessions or journals and study guides that can help a believer in reading the Bible. It begins by starting to read it, and then building a continuous momentum. You can plan to set an alarm for a specific time to read the Bible daily until you create that habit. You can decide to read character by character, by the time you are done, you’ll have read most of the characters in the Bible and are moving on.

The Bible isn’t just a book, it’s a book containing food. Jeremiah 15:16 says, your words were found, and I ate them, and your word was to me the joy and rejoicing of my heart. Reading the Bible consistently makes us spiritually nourished. Imagine having your favorite meal served when you need it, now that’s the Bible to us.

The Bible contains treasures about the kingdom of God. It is the glory of kings to search out a matter. Reading the Bible consistently unlocks the secrets in it and it’s our glory as kings and Queens to find glory unlocking the secrets. Keep reading your Bible.
