I often find myself reading the word. There has been times I wake up and my face is literally still in my bible because I fell asleep reading it. There are a few things that come along with reading a lot of scriptures...
1) When someone asks you a question, your mind automatically starts quoting scripture to you.This allows the holy spirit to work through you.
2) You become more aware of your actions.
I usually choose a verse a week to foucs on and use that verse to work on my actions. Sometimes I decide to take that verse and focus on it longer than a week.
For example, this week I am focusing on Proverbs 31:26 "She opens her mouth with wisdom and her tongue is the law of kindness"
Last week, I focused on "Set a guard over my mouth, O Lord, Keep watch over the door of my lips." Psalm 141:3
There are a few from the past too ..
One week I had.."Study to shew thyself approved, a workman needeth not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." 1 Tim 2:15 (i hope that is the right ref. i am marking this from memory so if it is not I apologize)
“I desire therefore that the men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting; in like manner also, that the women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with propriety and moderation, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or costly clothing, but, which is proper for women professing godliness, with good works” (I Timothy 2:8-10)
I challenge you to pick a verse and focus on it this week and lets share our thoughts on how it affected our behavior at the end of the week. (Let's choose Saturday)
I am going to be using Proverbs 31:26 for this week. You are more than welcome to use on the verses that I put on this post as well. Let me know what verse you picked out. It will help us with holding ourselves more accountable. I'm looking forward to my week and seeing how God will challenge my focus this week to help me grow into what he desires me to be.
