The Blessings of Bible Reading 5

Infinite, almighty, God created me for a purpose, and that purpose is best expressed in some of the words of Jesus to His disciples when He was about to depart this earth. John 14:3 “If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also”. RECEIVE YOU TO MYSELF, THAT WHERE I AM, THERE YOU MAY BE ALSO. That is an amazing statement that I believe is meant for me as well as His disciples. God desires my fellowship, He wants to spend time with me. One of the commands given with a blessing many, many times in the Bible is to seek the Lord. “Those who seek the Lord will not be in want of any good thing”. I grow close to a person that I spend time with, and talk to, and listen to. The Bible is the living Word of God, and as I faithfully, daily read it, one of the major blessings is that I grow closer and closer to, and more intimate with my God and Savior.

Psalms 119:2 How blessed are those who observe His testimonies, Who seek Him with all their heart.

Psalms 119:10 With all my heart I have sought You; Do not let me wander from Your commandments.

Psalms 119:38 Establish Your word to Your servant, As that which produces reverence for You.

Psalms 119:176 I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek Your servant, For I do not forget Your commandments.

When I choose to pick up my Bible and read it, I am choosing to seek God, and He is honored by that choice, and He will honor me for it. “Those who honor Me, I will honor”.
