Reading The Bible During Your Quiet Time
When you read the Bible, read for quality not quantity. Many people have a goal to read the Bible through in a year or six months. That’s wonderful! Do that. But that should not be a substitute for your quiet time.
Sometimes you might spend your entire time alone with God on one verse. Stop and meditate as you read the Word of God, “What is God telling me?” Not “What does this say?” Of course it says something. But what is God saying to you? Not “What does God want me to tell somebody?” Not “What am I going to teach in Sunday school?” Your quiet time should be a precious time of personal growth and communion with God.
Be a Psalm 1 man or woman whose “delight is in the law of the LORD; and in His law doth he meditate day and night” (Psalm 1:2
). I encourage you to be one who studies “to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15
