Flourishing in the Richness of God’s Word [podcast]


Have You Done This?
This is a Blessing!

“He taught me also, and said unto me, Let thine heart retain my words: keep my commandments, and live…. My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. 21 Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. 22 For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh. 23 Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.” Proverbs 4:4, 20-23

Those who get into and remain in God’s Word are having a “continual feast.” Everyone else is famished, fainting, and falling away!

“All the days of the afflicted are evil: but he that is of a merry heart hath a continual feast.” Proverbs 15:15

There are several ways to study Holy Scripture. One of my favorite methods is saturation of a passage or verse – reading it, regularly, pouring over it, in order to be saturated with and by the truth of it. For example, there are many passages that come to mind that have come to be divinely transforming such as Proverbs 4:20-23; 22:17-21; John 1:1-18, and Philippians 2:3-5, James 3:13-18, and 1 Corinthians 13. Reading them over and over at times has greatly blessed, brought His grace and peace, and raised my understanding by prayerfully pouring over these and other passages. You may like to try this. Find a passage, maybe even one of the ones mentioned here, and say a prayer, asking the LORD to illuminate your understanding. Then, read that passage through, then do it again, and again and remember that passage. Take it as your own treasure from the LORD. Own it. Let it own and possess you. Watch how just by becoming familiar with the words of the text will begin opening your understanding and transforming, changing your life for God’s glory!

If you don’t know where to begin, try 1 Corinthians 13, known by many as the love chapter. Watch God do His work in you as you are imbued with His words.

When you find you are being convicted of the need to be more giving and not so self-serving, try reading and praying Philippians 2:3-5. The cross – daily death, burial, resurrection.

When that inner sense and desire to go deeper with Christ is in your heart, pour over John 1:1-18 to increase your Christology (study of Christ).

When you are asking God for more wisdom, read James 3:13-18.

Whenever and where ever you are reading in God’s Word, always remember to consider how the passage points to Jesus Christ, the central Theme of all of Scripture.


Here’s one of mine: I will not leave the house until I have read a certain number of chapters. One reason is because the Bible never gets read, studied by accident but rather by deliberate action.
