Too often in our busy days we neglect reading the Word much less hearing it. With full schedules we get up in just enough time to get ready for work and out the door we go. When our young children wake us up earlier than expected, the TV kid’s program occupies them while we fix breakfast. Even retirees copy the same schedule they’ve grown accustomed to. These activities occupy our time and our minds.
Let’s give time to God’s Word no matter how busy our schedule is.
I like how EW Kenyon explains how our anticipation should be in reading God’s Word each day. “When you pick up the Word it will mean that God is present with you and that the Word is His attitude toward you now.”
Reading God’s Word isn’t a task to check off your to-do list. It isn’t a religious obligation. It is life to you. It is life in you. It is God’s presence with you. Jeremiah 15:16, NASB says: “Your words were found and I ate them, and your words became for me a joy and the delight of my heart.”
