Get More Scripture in Your Life Now

If you are a follower of Jesus, you should esteem His Holy Word and desire more of it in your life. It is the way to transformation! My personal testimony about scripture is that the more of it I get in my life, the more I love it. The more I love it the more I love the Author. My life makes more sense, and I have more peace.

If you are interested in having more peace and having a sense of being closer to God, then getting more scripture is the way to do it.

Have a committed morning time with the Lord reading His Word and praying.

When a scripture(s) stand out to you, type them on a card. Put the card on the bathroom mirror. Go over the card a couple of minutes while brushing your teeth. You’ll be amazed how quickly it’s memorized, and you’ll be so proud of yourself.

Begin doing scripture writing. See how here.

Get an app on your phone that sends you scripture and read it when it comes. Our own FBJ app has a scripture reading plan you can listen to while at home or on the road or at night to fall asleep.

Take time beyond your morning quiet time to write scripture. Write a chapter of the Bible. Write a book of the Bible.

YouTube has scripture reading with nature sounds or music and a variety of options to hear scripture.
While waiting anywhere, read the Bible.

Any effort you make to get more scripture in your life will be rewarding. God rewards those who earnestly seek Him. This is a promise, and He is faithful to His promises every time.

“I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against Thee.” Psalm 119:11

Bread of Life, stir up a hunger in my heart for your holy Word. Give me a desire for it like I’ve never had and help me to obey your prompting to sit down a few minutes to any time. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
