TODAY'S WORD FOR TODAY
‘…Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.’
Read God’s Word—Every DayRomans 10:17
If you are wise, when God talks you’ll listen. And He will talk to you through the Bible. The reason the Bible has outsold every other book is because it is God’s Word on the issue. It takes approximately fifty-six hours to read the Bible through. If you read forty chapters a day you would complete the Bible within a month. If you read nine chapters of the New Testament each day you would complete it within thirty days. But you must read it systematically, regularly, and expectantly. When satan attacked Him in the wilderness, Jesus quoted the Scriptures to him. That’s why the Psalmist said, ‘Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee’ (Psalm 119:11). The book of Proverbs has thirty-one chapters. Here’s an idea: since there are thirty-one days in most months, why not read a chapter in this wisdom book every day. Can you imagine what you’d learn? The Word of God will build your faith. ‘Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.’ Your faith grows when you hear God speak, and it works when you do what He says. If you struggle to lead a victorious Christian life, read these words carefully: ‘How can a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed according to Your word’ (v. 9 NKJV). The solution to every problem you face is contained in Scripture. To be wise you must study it. To be strong in faith you must believe it. To be successful in life you must practice it.
