Since I was a wee child, the number one tool I watched my mom use during her quiet time was her colored pencils! My mom always had her Bible, Bible study notebook and a set of colored pencils on our kitchen table and if you walked into her kitchen today you’d probably find them there!
Psalm 119:103-4 says “How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth! I gain understanding from your precepts.”
Are you lacking in understanding? Grab some colored pencils, dig into the sweetness of God’s word today and enjoy!
Kay Arthur (Precept Ministry) was Nancy Leigh DeMoss’s guest today, and you can hear the radio program by going to reviveourhearts.com. Kay is giving instructions on how to study the Word of God. She asks some penetrating questions: What do you prefer, the world or the Word? The words of man, or the Words of God? Kay suggests that we turn off our TV, computers, and put away the Christian novels, and open the Word. Kay indicated that many want the result (be a better Christian, wife, mother, etc) without going through the process to maturity. The reward we should be seeking is to someday hear “well done good and faithful servant” when we stand before the Lord. If that is our goal, then we WILL BE better Christians, wives, mothers, etc.
Courtney suggests marking our Bibles which is an excellent study tool. I would recommend Kay Arthur’s book, “Lord, Help me Grow Spiritually Strong in 28 days”. Day by day, Kay helps you to learn to study the Bible and understand what you are reading so that you can know God’s purpose for your life and apply God’s truth daily. At the end of the 28 days, your life will be changed. If you never attended another Bible study or purchased another book about the Bible, you would be fully equipped to feed yourself from God’s Word. It is a powerful study method, and will transform your time spent with God and in His Word. I guarantee it!!! – Bev
