Happy New Year 2019

Happy New Year 2019
To read the Bible over the year is such amazing devotion to the Word of God! The Bible should be part of our day and night, it is our only communication from God see Romans 10:17 (NKJV) So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. as we hear and listen to Him as we read from it.
 
Try not to read the Bible for the sake of it, pray before you read that the Holy Spirit will help and teach you the things that God wants to tell you as it says in John 14:26 (NKJV)  But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.
 
It is a bad habit to go by feeling in that in your heart and mind you feel God is speaking to you, this is dangerous as it says in "Jeremiah 17:9 (NKJV) “The heart is deceitful above all things, And desperately wicked; Who can know it?" So, when we pray or talk with God go to the Bible for the answer, if you feel deeply He’s speaking to you through your heart and mind, go to the Bible and see if this is Him speaking. Remember "2 Timothy 3:16 (NKJV) All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness," 
 
Have the Bible as part of your life, just like your mobile phone where your connected to your social media. To read the Bible it takes around 72 hours to go right through. This is easily achievable over a month but a over a year isn't as rushed. I at times have Books of the Bible on my mp3 player to listen to while I go out running or long walks, it is an amazing experience when you have God speak to you out on the mountains. Also, you can listen in your car as you drive, it can be great for your family who are with you to discuss sections that God speaking to you or teaching.
