Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2
How many of you may own a Bible, maybe many Bibles? Do you read it on a daily basis? Why or why not? Did you know God's word is the best weapon against the enemy, Satan? How many Christians rush into their day with little more than a quick prayer and maybe don't even take time for reading some of the Bible? Lots of questions I know. I just want you to realize what a magnificent tool is at your disposal if only you would open it up.
Satan of course will use all sorts of tactics to keep you complacent , bored, busy, or disinterested in reading and studying it. The Holy Spirit has to convict people individually on their need for salvation and not just church membership. This means maybe you have to change churches in some cases.
Today instead of starting your day checking on how many 'likes' you have on Facebook or seeing who is ahead in the Presidential races or watching the morning show,commit to not doing anything else till you give the Lord some quality time. If you do not know where to begin, start in the Psalms or Proverbs. Believe me you will start to feel different if you do this daily.
PRAYER: Help me discipline myself in many areas Lord but especially when it comes to getting into the Bible. Direct my steps to do things that are pleasing to you. In Jesus' name. Amen.
