Ready or not, here it comes: 2011. Of all the things that you could commit to in 2011, spending time with God in His Word should be at the top of the list. Psalm 1:3 describes one who delights in and meditates on God’s Word day and night:
- “He is like a tree
planted by streams of water
that yields its fruit in its season,
and its leaf does not wither.
In all that he does, he prospers.”
Maybe you have failed in past commitments to read the Bible daily… join the club. Don’t give up. Nothing worth doing comes easy, and spending time in God’s word is no different. There are tons of different plans and structures for daily time with God in His Word. Justin Taylor has compiled many of them in a recent post, and he provides links to access the Word in several different formats (online, text, audio, podcast, mobile, etc). If you don’t have a plan for reading the Word, I would suggest that you browse his post, and find a plan that will help you enjoy God and His Word in the year(s) to come.
