But where do I start? Following up from Psalm 119
On Sunday morning we spent some time in Psalm 119:9-40. My main goal was to begin this new school year (and re-entry into post COVID??) by helping us desire to be nourished by the Word of God. We didn't spend time on the "what does this look like practically" or "how can we try some new ways to study God's Word" because I wanted for us to desire God's word before we looked for ways to satisfy that desire.
In the next few blog posts, I want to give a few practical tips for how you can practically infuse more Bible into your daily lives.
"Open my eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of your law."
Open up a short book of the New Testament and read the first chapter. The book of James is a good place to start. After you read the first chapter, go back and re-read the chapter slowly until you see something that is something you want to think more or pray for yourself or another about. Maybe it is an aspect of what God has done for you in Christ about which you want to thank Him. Maybe it is an area of your life that you have been neglecting that you want to ask for help from God about. Or maybe it is a truth that you want to understand more fully.
Write down what you thought about, prayed for, or need to understand better.
That's it for today. If you only get through a portion, that's ok. When you get a chance to read God's Word again, just pick up where you left off. Knowing where to start each time we come to the word is half the battle!
