Become Familiar with the Bible

Reading your Bible goes hand in hand with praying. It’s one of the way’s you get to know God. Also, reading your Bible can help you be open to God’s plan for you. There are many scriptures that convict you on the spot, but the key to a convicting scripture is being open enough to read it and being open enough to letting it convict you. If the Bible is supposed to be “A lamp to your feet and light to your path”, let the Word lead you to God’s plan. The Bible is our daily bread and refreshing water, it’s nearly impossible to live a healthy life without it.

Be Still and Let God Do His Work

We all know what Psalm 46:10 says, “Be still and know that I am God”. We are usually so busy praying to God and living our lives that we rarely are still. A good friend of mine in the church is learning to become a campus leader; she is also engaged to one of the campus Minister’s. So between doing things for Campus, planning her wedding and working a full-time job, along with many other things; it’s amazing and encouraging to see that she makes spending time with God daily a priority, and most importantly in those times she allows herself to be still in the presence of her father, meditating on his glory, listening for his voice, enjoying his presence, and letting him work through her. Her relationship with God is so amazing, and exemplifies what the Lord says about the one who trust in him. “They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit (Jeremiah 17;8),” which is exactly what she has done. She has baptized many women, including me and she is still studying the bible and leading women’s devo groups. We all need to take time out of our lives and just be still, quiet our minds and just meditate on God. If we do that often we will begin to see what God has in store for our lives.
