" All Scripture is inspired of God and useful for teaching, reproof, correction, and instruction in righteousness, so that the man of God may be fit and fully prepared for every good work. "

2 Timothy 3:16-17

Imagine what it would be like to be able to talk to God and hear his voice every day. Wouldn't that be awesome? You could receive instruction, comfort, help, and direction for your life, directly from God. But that's not just imagination, it's possible!

Through the Bible, God speaks to you. God inspired the people who wrote the Bible to convey his message to you. When you read the Bible, you read the word of God. With the help of the Holy Spirit, reading the Bible is entering God's presence and learning from him.

So get out your Bible and let God speak to you. To hear God speaking to you through the Bible:

- Pray asking the Holy Spirit to guide your reading and give you understanding

- Take time each day to read the Bible carefully

- Think about what you read throughout the day

To pray:

Lord God, I want to hear Your voice. I want to hear and understand what you want to tell me today. Holy Spirit, help me understand the word of God when I read the Bible. Amen.
