3 Reasons Why you should Start Reading and Studying your Bible

3 Reasons Why you should start Reading and Studying your Bible
It is not like any other book you usually purchase in stores. While other books aim to entertain and provide leisure, the Bible desires to do way beyond that.

Here are 3 reasons why you should start reading and studying your Bible:

  1. God’s Will

Jeremiah 29:11 NASB says, “For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.”

The more you know about God’s sovereign will for your life, the more confident you will be in dealing with life’s challenges. Knowing the will of God for your life will save from doubting and worrying.

  1. God’s Guidance

Psalm 119:105 ESV says, “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.”

As you read and study the Scriptures, you also expose yourself to the wisdom of God for it is inspired by Him (2 Timothy 3:16). This allows you to make wiser decisions. Allow His Word to be a lamp to your feet and you will be led to His good, pleasing and perfect will (Romans 12:2).

  1. God’s Promises

Romans 4:21 NASB says, “…and being fully assured that what God had promised, He was able also to perform.”

The Bible tells the promises God has for you. These are words that you can look upon and hold onto whenever life gets tough. It was in His promises that hope abounds even in the darkest times.

Your sense of purpose, the guidance in dealing with struggles, and the promises that you can hold on to are all in God’s Word – the Bible. Delve into it to learn about how invaluable you are.

God in all His mercy and unconditional love, has His best intentions for your life. Who else can give it other than the One who created it?
