Good morning.

Many people read the Bible as part of their daily routine. For some it is something they only do when they feel like it. Is it possible that in both these scenarios reading the Bible seems dry and often confusing?

When we read the Bible, we should read it in such a way that it forms part of a dialogue between God and ourselves.

Dr Martyn Lloyd-Jones had this to say about reading God's Word. "I should never read the Bible in exactly the same way that I read any other book. (...) I should always start by asking God by the Holy Spirit to enlighten me, to keep me from error and subtle dangers and to lead me into all truth. Then, having done that, I come to my Bible."

It is out of our relationship with God that His Word comes to life. The writer to the Hebrews says this about God's Word: "For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. (Hebrews 4:12)

When we read the Word out of our relationship with God and with the desire to hear Him talk with us, then Psalm 119:105 becomes a reality. "Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path." Then we will be able to say with David: "My steps have held to your paths; my feet have not stumbled."

(Psalm 17:5)

Have a wonderful day.
