Teach me Your ways, O LORD, that I may live according to Your truth! Grant me purity of heart, so that I may honor You. (Psalms 86:11 NLT)
Today’s scripture is part of a prayer of David’s. How can we honor God? Through living according to His truth. How can we know His truth so we can live it? We can ask for the Holy Spirit to guide us to His truth. As we read scripture we can ask the Holy Spirit to open our eyes to see scripture with a new understanding. There is a lot of treasures of truth in the scripture that we overlook.
I have read the Bible many times. Reading 3 to 4 chapters at a time. Now I read one chapter a day starting from Genesis through Revelation. I think I am on my third time going through the Bible one chapter at a time. There are 1,189 chapters in the Bible. We have 365 days in a year, 366 in a leap year. So that means it takes over three years to read the Bible one chapter at a time. What a difference it makes reading and meditating on one chapter at a time. I have found much treasure that I have overlooked before.
I recommend you try it today. Yes, I still do other Bible study but my daily devotion is reading one chapter at a time.
