Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. —Psalm 119:105

Commit to reading the Bible every day. Find a devotional book or other resource that will give you some guidance. If your spouse is open to it, see if they will commit to daily Bible reading with you. Begin submitting each area of your life to its guidance and start building on the rock.

Don’t set such high goals for yourself that you get discouraged if you miss a day or can’t read 12 chapters a day.   One technique I have tried and found successful is to pick a book of the Bible and read 2 – 5 chapters each day for a week.  Read it like any book, and let God work, over the course of several days, to make your knowledge grow.


The Lord will continually guide you, and satisfy your desire. —Isaiah 58:11

Be intentional today about making a time to pray and read your Bible. Try reading a chapter out of Proverbs each day (there are thirty-one—a full month’s supply), or reading a chapter in the Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John). As you do, immerse yourself in the love and promises God has for you. This will add to your growth as you walk with Him.

Guys, if you want to walk in strength with Christ, this is the most important thing you can do to stay strong: read His word!  The Holy Spirit inspired it for our benefit.  Would you be strengthened by a word of prophesy?  A word of knowledge?  Let God speak into your life: Open your bible and read.
