Psalm 119:105-Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.
Revelation 1:3-Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear, and who keep what is written in it, for the time is near.
Did you know that some people find reading the bible a chore instead of a blessing? The reason so many people view it as a chore is because they haven’t seen the real treasures that are hidden in the bible. We all like treasures, don’t we? And there are different categories of treasures. Some like materials while others like status treasures. But whatever your flavor of treasures is, it will only lead you to a dead ended road. And no one likes driving down dead-end road.
When a person views reading his or her bible as a chore several things will happen to them spiritual. The first thing is that we start listening to the enemy. Then we become weak. After being weak we start compromising. Then it’s only a matter of time before we start believing what the enemy tells us. If you haven’t noticed let me say now these are all signs of a Christian walking away from God slowly. Therefore, we must be vigilant.
Here are a few treasures we encounter when we stay in the word.
Breakthrough Blessings Blessed Courage
Completion Healing Restoration Self-Control
Patience Virtue Hope Instructions
Gladness Happiness Promises Wealth
Boldness Compassion Wisdom Victory
Joy Steadfastness Happiness Zeal
Strength Love Deliverance Guidance
Couldn’t you use those words in your life? If you had answered yes to anyone of them, keep reading your bible to see what other treasures you can find. God’s word is the only treasures that we need to be collecting. AMEN.. Now if you are one of those people who don’t want none of those treasures that I had listed in your life then my question to you is “how are you making it in life? Notice I didn’t say how you are living? For one can’t live this life without Jesus Christ
