In my walk with God, I have consistently experienced the Bible’s ability to speak the right word, at the right time. God’s word comes alive in new ways each time I read. Even though I might have read it hundreds of times, in times of need it comes alive and fresh and gives me strength and courage for that particular moment when I face a struggle or trial. A.W. Tozer said, “The Bible is not only a book which was once spoken, but a book which is now speaking.” God wants to speak to us today, and everyday, through His word. Child of God, this new year, would you make reading the word a priority?
Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path. Psalm 119:105

If anyone claims that the situations and stories in the Bible can’t possibly relate today or that the Bible is outdated, they must not have read it at all. Honestly, so much of it can be equally compared to today’s world. I don’t mean to say that I know the Bible by heart, but from everything that I’ve read, the Bible may as well have been written yesterday, it’s so similar. Almost everything I read is uncomfortably mirrored to the world we know today.
