New Years Resolution

I got a revelation today. I was reading Missy’s post where she was talking about her new years resolutions and how they are do able. On her list she included that this year would be the year of their marriage, and that she would read through the Bible in a year.

I started to leave her a comment about how if she and Walker will make their marriage the top priority, that everything else will fall in place. This is where I got the revelation, because in truth if Missy, me and you will make reading through the Bible in a year the top priority then everything else has to fall into place.

You see, God tells us that His Word is a lamp to our feet and a light to our path Psalm 119:105. So if we don’t have the flashlight out how are we going to see where to step, and if we don’t keep carrying the lamp how are we even going to see to find the path? A one year Bible is broken up into 365 readings, that just enough for each day. And I can promise you that if you are spending time in your Bible on a daily basis that where you are reading is where you are walking. The Jews for centuries have been reading through the Torah (Genesis to Deuteronomy) on a yearly/daily basis, and they believe that you should see where you are reading being walked out in your life.

So regardless of what other resolutions you have made for this New Year, let’s make a resolution to make this a year of living in the Word. Of not losing the flashlight, or setting down the lamp. Of believing that where ever we are reading that we will see it being lived out in our lives. That as God has promised that if we will meditate on His law night and day that we will be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bears fruit in season, whose leaves shall not wither, and whatever we do shall prosper.

What a blessing is waiting for us, if we will just carry the Lamp..

In Him,

That's wonderful! I am doing the Cover to Cover again, reading through the Bible chronologically in a year! That daily time has become so important to me!
