Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.
(Psalm 119:105, NIV)
It’s easy to read the Bible merely out of habit, without any thought of why we’re reading or what we’re looking for.
God has prompted me to pray briefly before reading, in order to center my thoughts, my search, and my need on Him.
As I read, I look to Him for understanding. I need Him to meet me and speak to me.
More than specific information, I need to gain His mind, His perspective on my life. I need to know Him.
That’s why I read. I come seeking Him.
Jesus, as I read,
I come seeking You.
