Window Shopping Through the Bible

“Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.”

Psalm 119:105

Ponder This

Most of us just kind of go window-shopping through the Bible. “Oh, isn’t that a precious promise?” “Hmm, what a sweet promise.” “Oh, that’s a wonderful promise.” We take verses, memorize them, and even put them on our refrigerator door, but never lay hold on them. Just kind of window-shopping. But do we believe them?

Leonard Ravenhill said, “One of these days somebody is going to pick up this book, read it and believe it, and the rest of us are going to be ashamed of ourselves.” Promises are wonderful, but the Word of God was never meant to be just a grab bag of promises. It is a lamp to our feet and the light for our path.

Practice This

Don’t wait another day to commit to making this a year of being devoted to reading the Bible and to prayer. Plan to read through the Bible this year, cover to cover.
