The unfolding of Your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple.
If you read your Bible in faith, studying the truth, asking God to give you understanding of what was, what is, and what is to come the Lord, by His grace, will enlighten your mind and soul. God’s word gives understanding to all who seek Him.
Pay careful attention to your own work, for then you will get the satisfaction of a job well done, and you won’t need to compare yourself to anyone else.
Don’t fall into the trap of comparing yourself to anyone else. God created you and you are unique. If you are comparing yourself to someone who is doing better than you, you could fall into the sin of envy. If you are comparing yourself to someone who is worse off than you, you could fall into the sin of pride. God wants you to be the best you can be by following Christ’s example. Live your life according to God’s Word and you will do well.
For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
The Bible, which is the Word of God, isn’t some old irrelevant book of stories. It is alive and active today and forever more. If you begin to read God’s word, I promise, it will begin to change your life. Whatever you are going through the answer is in God’s word.
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
Navigating this world is no easy task. But the more we know God’s Word, the more we can apply it to our lives. The more we apply it to our lives, the clearer the path becomes. Sometimes it may feel like we are lost or walking in the dark but God’s Word is here to guide us and to show us the way we should go. Let God guide you through this world with his Word.
Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.
I urge you to experience the infinite goodness of the Lord. He is perfect in every way, the author of all good things, everything about him is good and he loves you. Turn to him, put your hope in him, and put your trust in him alone. He is the only one that can fill your heart with peace. You will never know what it’s like to have a relationship with the Lord until you make an effort to really experience Him for yourself through prayer and reading the Word of God.
Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.
Live a less self-centered life by focusing more on God and by being kind to others. Humility doesn’t mean being weak, it’s actually the opposite. It’s being so strong in your faith that you are obedient to God’s Word no matter the circumstances.
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness
Reading the Bible as part of your prayer may lead to enlightenment. God speaks to us in many ways including his written Word. God may open your eyes to something new when a passage you’ve read before suddenly becomes clear and impacts you like never before.
