Awhile back I preached on what Psalm 119 says regarding how to have a meaningful daily Bible reading experience. Since Sean Wiles preached this past Sunday on the importance of God’s Word I wanted to summarize that message in today’s post (to help you apply Sean’s message).
Psalm 119:169, Give me understanding according to your Word. Suggestion: Ask God for insight into what you’re about to read.
Psalm 119:15, I will study your commandments…Suggestion: Read four chapters a day to read through the Bible in one year.
Psalm 119:15, I will…reflect on your ways. Suggestion: Ask yourself the following nine questions to discover an application:
- Sin to confess?
- Promise to claim?
- Attitude to change?
- Command to obey?
- Example to follow?
- Prayer to pray?
- Error to avoid?
- Truth to believe?
- Something to praise God for?
Psalm 119:34, I will…put it (God’s law) into practice with all my heart. Suggestion: Using a journal, write out how you plan to apply what you’ve read.
