Open your Bible to 2 Timothy 2:26 It says… And so that you may be freed from the snare of the devil, in which you are held captive at his will. Go ahead and highlight that writing.
The devil will work hard to convince you that you don’t need to read the Bible. He wants you to have the attitude that the Bible doesn’t matter. The devil wants you to keep your Bible closed, because he wants you to worry about the bad news and lies that come from him.
God wants you to know the Truth! That’s why you have to put your mind and spirit on Him. How do you do that? You receive the scriptures. You focus on the written Word of God. Hallelujah! God wants your Bible reading to be personal! You walk in the new life. You have Jesus in you! You focus on one thing. Victory in Jesus! Eternal life is as good as it gets! The Bible will tell you that you live in a covenant relationship with the Savior and King.
Don’t let Satan steal your biblical focus! His Bible is a personal testimony of a great and wonderful God. He reveals the truth about him personally through the Holy Spirit. He gives you wisdom to understand his Word. God wants you to read your Bible so you can discover your true identity in Jesus.
You quickly learn that God’s way is better than any plan you may have as your motto. He will help you, He is waiting to help you. Start with the right attitude, which is to enjoy reading the Bible. Tell God, I am going to look to you and your Word for direction in my life.
Many people around the world need to wake up because the devil is stealing their focus from the Bible! Yes, he will try to make you question the authority and accuracy of what God has said.
Don’t fall into the trap of not being encouraged to read the Bible. God not only wants you to read his Word, but he sees it as your responsibility to do so. Dedicate yourself to the Word of God. If you are living for Christ, you have to take a stand against the devil!
Do not be one of those who will come before Jesus with shame and regret for not reading and meditating on His Word. I’ll say it again, you can’t let the devil and his lies trick you into taking your eyes off the finish line and causing you to lose the race. Let the Word guide you.
If you give Satan a chance, he will take it and use it against you. God said, be strong, be brave and observe all that is written. Spend time each day in the Bible. You see, before any other part of your life can rise, your spiritual life must thrive. Now raise your hands and say, Praise Jesus!
