Discover a Profound Love for the Word of God

May 22, 2024

Among followers of Christ, there are those who cherish Him yet do not find joy in reading His holy scriptures. That may be a shocking statement, but it’s true. They may perceive reading the Bible as burdensome or an obligation, rather than part of a soulful journey. But it’s entirely possible to learn to desire God’s Word. As we strive to deepen our relationship with Him, we’ll discover a newfound affection for every passage and verse. The Bible is the original GPS navigation tool for life and a love letter from God. The more you read, the more capable you become in utilizing its teachings during life’s trials and tribulations.

Here are some tips to help you connect with God through scripture:

• Make reading the Bible a priority. Set aside intentional time to meet with God, with a reminder on your phone or an app that sends notifications. Turning this into a daily habit is probably easier than you think! Ask God for the desire to connect to Him through His Word and He will. “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Luke 12:34).

• Meditate on the Word. Memorize verses, think deeply, and reflect on what God has said in what you’ve read. Stop to hear God’s voice, focus, and prepare for prayer. As we dig deeper into the word, it leaves us wanting more. “Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do” (Joshua 1:8).

• Pray the scriptures. When we use God’s Word in our prayer and personalize it for people or situations, it is POWERFUL and draws attention from Heaven. Scriptures help us align with God, giving shape and a more profound context to our prayers. “But if you remain in me and my words remain in you, you may ask for anything you want, and it will be granted! When you produce much fruit, you are my true disciples. This brings great glory to my Father” (John 15:7-8).

• Thank God for His Word. The Bible is a gift to mankind, as we can’t gain this wisdom alone. We acknowledge that His ways are higher than our own by thanking Him for this blessing. “I praise God for his word to me; I praise the Lord for his word” (Psalms 56:10).

Your Call to Action

No matter your trials, there’s a scripture to guide you! Seek Him with all your heart, humble your spirit, and you’ll find His enduring love, divine wisdom, and unfaltering truth waiting for you on those sacred pages! “It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it” (Isaiah 55:11).

“If your law had not been my delight, I would have perished in my affliction. Oh! How I love your law! It is my meditation all the day.” (Psalm 119:92,97).

“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:16-17).


Father, thank You for the gift of Your Word. Help us fall in love with it and find it energizing, healing, and beautiful. Make us hungry for this blessing You have given us. Apply it to our hearts and help us live by the words that please You. In Jesus’ name, we pray, Amen.
