We all have busy lives. We know it is important to make time for God, or you wouldn't be reading this blog. It is difficult, though. Put a check by the one or two that you find the most difficult. Now read the scripture next to what you checked.
_____ Unworthiness (Isaiah 41:9-10; Ephesians 2:13-14)
_____ Sick ( Proverbs 15:30; James 5:14)
_____ Tempted ( 1 Corinthians 10:13; James 4:7)
_____ Too Busy ( Psalm 90:12; Isaiah 40:29-31)
_____ Too Tired ( Matthew 11:28-30)
_____ Death ( John 11:26; 2 Timothy 1:10)
_____ Finances ( Matthew 10:29-31)
_____ Family ( Psalm 127:3-5; Ephesians 6:1-4)
Meditate on the verse(s) that you checked off. How does it speak to you? Scripture speaks to each of us, bringing to each of us, what we need in order to develop our spiritual wholeness. Reading the Bible is not to use a reference book to look up verses. It is a personal contact with what God is saying to you.
Read the verses again. Read them again, slower.
Think about it.
