I am using a Bible Reading Guide that has you read through the Bible in one year. I actually started this plan in the middle of last year. So today, I was reading from the Day labeled July 30th! Hey it doesn't matter that I didn't start on January 1st!
It is really good to be in God's Word. I have had a hard time being consistent with it, but I have been Blessed by my effort of working on it! I decided that my relationship with God is more important than any other part of my life. To keep that relationship Going and Growing it requires effort on my part. Spending time in His Word and Communicating with Him frequently is how this is accomplished!
I have decided that I will spend time with God and His word before I will open up my computer each day. I feel like I must make Him a priority before anything else! I like to get on my computer first thing in the morning to check emails and of course facebook! I have got to make sure I know what is going on with everyone! But God has to be First!
Anyway, today's reading included some of the Psalms. I really enjoy reading the Psalms because they are a great encouragement to me. I think I need to include the Psalms even on days when it is not on the reading plan!
This Scripture really stood out to me!
Create in me a pure heart, O God,
and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Do not cast me from your presence
or take your Holy Spirit from me.
Restore to me the joy of your salvation
and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.
I Highly Encourage You To Spend Time in God's Word Each Day!
