Bible reading: Colossians 3:16-17.

Memory Verse: He tells us everything over and over – one line at a time, one line at a time, a little here, and a little there! Isaiah 28:10 (NLT).

The body needs a steady diet to remain strong, so does the soul. When God sent food to his people in the wilderness, he didn’t provide loaves already made. Instead, He sent Manna (Exodus 16:14). God gave Manna in limited portions.

God sends spiritual food the same way. He opens the heavens with just enough nutrients for today’s hunger. He provides precept upon precept, line upon line, here a little, there a little (Isaiah 28:10).

Don’t be discouraged if your reading reaps a small harvest. Some days a lesser portion is all that is needed. What is important is to search everyday for that day’s message. A steady diet of God’s Word over a lifetime builds a healthy soul and mind. A little girl returned from her first day at school, her mom asked, “Did you learn anything?”

“Apparently not enough”, the girl responded.  “I have to go back tomorrow and the next day and the next…” Such is the case with learning and such is the case with Bible study. Understanding comes little by little over a lifetime.

There is a third step in understanding the Bible. After the asking and seeking comes the knocking.  After you ask and search then knock.

Knock; and it will be opened to you (Mat.7:7), To knock is to stand at God’s door. To make yourself available. To climb the steps, cross the porch, stand at the doorway; and volunteer, knocking goes beyond the realm of thinking and into the realm of acting.

To knock is to ask, what can I do? How do I obey? Where can I go? It’s one thing to know what to do it. But for those who do it, those who choose to obey have a special reward awaiting them. He who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does (James 1:25).

Key Point: A consistent in-take of God’s Word builds up our spirit man.

Prayer  points

  1. Holy Spirit, increase my appetite for the Word of God, in Jesus’ name.
  2. Holy Spirit of God, help me to live what I read in th Bible, in the name of Jesus.
