Resolutions: Draw closer to God through study of His word
BIBLE READING: John 14.7
Spend time alone with God’s Word. Besides the spiritual growth we will gain from study, we will also come to know Him better. Reading His word brings us in touch with Him. Jesus tells us in John 14:7 – “If you had known Me, you would have known my Father also.” Just studying the life of Jesus will help us to know God better.
In seeking God’s help, we can draw closer to Him through prayer, meditation, nature, and study. “But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law doth he meditate day and night.” Psalm 1:2
I Tim.4:13,15 - “Give attention to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine… meditate on these things; give yourself wholly to them.”
Regardless of our circumstances we can rely on God’s unchanging character. God is good. God loves me. God is with me. God knows my problems. God cares.
Romans 8:31(b) tells us, “If God is for us, who can be against us?”
Make a resolution to slowdown and study Gods word not just read it.
