I don’t know about you, but…
I write in my Bible.
I mark it up.
Maybe it’s simply because I love annotating and post-it notes, and highlighters and journals and gel pens.
God gave his word to US to devour and share and hide in our hearts. How incredibly blessed we are with this gift?!
We need to SOAK IT UP.
We need to make it personal.
“A bible that’s falling apart usually belongs to someone who isn’t.”
Our Bibles can’t stay on our nightstands collecting dust. I realized how important making our Bibles personal when I left my Bible at church on Sunday. I could have borrowed a Bible or used one of numerous others lying around my room and house, but there is something about the bible we use on a consistent basis that helps us dive into the Word with a profound eagerness. In my bible I’ve written prayers, scrawled in the margins, asked questions and made comments. It’s practically a journal.
I’m resolving, TODAY, that I’m gonna be in the word more, because frankly, I haven’t been too appreciative lately of the fact that God gave it to ME to use! I look to everything else except what’s right in front of me, readily available. Aside from giving himself to me Jesus has given me the truest form of wisdom to be found.
“…he rewards those who earnestly seek him.”
Hebrews 11: 6
Will you resolve to seek Him as well?
