THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS


DAILY DEVOTIONS

HI!

A pastor told a new convert, "I'm going to teach you to steal, drink, and lie:
Steal time out of every day to read God's Word
Drink from it's clear, refreshing waters
Lie on your bed at night and meditate."
(Everyday Light, Selwyn Hughes)

And he did evil, because he prepared not his heart to seek the LORD.

It was written in Deut. 17:18 that the king should have a copy of God's Word;
and that he should "read therein all the days of his life."

But in Rehoboam's case, the Bible records "he forsook the law of the Lord."
(2Chron. 12:1)
He failed to study in God's Word.
He loosened his grip on God's truths.

As a result, Rehoboam "did evil";
simply because he "PREPARED NOT
his heart to SEEK the Lord."

Permit me, for a moment, to compare the Christian life to a ball game.
Dreams, vision, feelings do NOT win the game.
PREPARATION brings victory!

Plan a time in your day to study God's word.
Protect that time with tenacity!
Because production comes from preparation!

Love ya!
