The Benefits Of Reading God’s Word

The Benefits Of Reading God’s Word

“Your words…[are] my joy and my heart’s delight.” Jer 15:16 NIV

God promises certain things to those who take time each day to get to know Him through His Word. Let’s look at some of them: (1) Joy. “When your words came, I ate them; they were my joy and my heart’s delight, for I bear your name, O Lord God Almighty.” (2) Strength. “Now I commit you to God and to the word of his grace, which can build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified” (Ac 20:32 NIV). (3) Peace. “Great peace have they who love your law, and nothing can make them stumble” (Ps 119:165 NIV). “If only you had paid attention to my commands, your peace would have been like a river” (Isa 48:18 NIV). (4) Stability. “I have set the Lord always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure” (Ps 16:8-9 NIV). (5) Success. “Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful” (Jos 1:8 NIV). (6) Answered prayer. “If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given to you” (Jn 15:7 NIV). Joy, strength, peace, stability, success, and answered prayer—these are the things everybody wants. Don’t you? Well, look no further. God has promised them to you when you spend time with Him in His Word each day.
