The more seasoned of a Christian you are, the more you know about the Bible. Experience can give you a sense of comfort – you know your stuff. Unfortunately, experience can also lead you into a position of thinking you no longer need daily Bible scriptures. I mean, why read if you know it all? “I’ve read the entire Harry Potter Series or The Chronicles of Narnia Series, and I don’t go back and reread them. Why should I have to reread the Bible?” you may think. But there is a difference between reading these famous novels and God’s Word. Let’s explore a few Daily Bible Scriptures.
God’s Word (Bible Scriptures) is Eternal
While a good book can be uplifting, only daily Bible scriptures can be life changing. Dumbledore, while he did make sacrifices, his death did not cover the sins of the entire world. And while Aslan was figuratively Christ, he was not Jesus. The Bible is the only literary source that can give a person true hope, express pure love, and deliver is the source of life.
From Creation to The Revelation, God’s Word outlines His eternal love for everyone. It is the answer to every question, the promise for every concern, and the proof of any doubt. Through His Word, if anyone lacks wisdom, we are guaranteed help from above.
“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.” (James 1:5)
God speaks to us through daily Bible scriptures. This is why it is imperative to have a daily devotional time with Him. Through His Word and prayer, He guides our path. Two of the greatest examples are in the book of Jeremiah. God is telling Jeremiah to cry out, and He will show him the way to go. All we must do is call on Him, and He will give us revelation.
God’s Word is Ever-changing
Yes, the Word does say that God never changes. But that does not mean that we cannot get more out of daily Bible scriptures than we do the first time we read them. This is the beauty of His Word. You can read a verse once, then come back to it a day, week, month, or years later and get something new out of it. For instance, let’s take John 3:16. Read below and stress each bolded word:
- For God so loved the world, that He gave His only son. – God loved, not anyone else.
- For God so loved the world, that He gave His only son. – Loved, not tolerated.
- For God so loved the world, that He gave His only son. – The world; everyone.
- For God so loved the world, that He gave His only son. – He gave, not anyone else.
- For God so loved the world, that He gave His only son. – Gave, not sold or at a price.
- For God so loved the world, that He gave His only – Only son, sacrificially.
See, it takes on new meaning every time. It is like that with the other 31,101 verses in the Bible. The Word is firm, and its truth cannot be changed. But what daily Bible scriptures say to us will depend on how God chooses to reveal Himself to us. This is completely dependent upon where we are on our path that day.
More daily Bible scriptures
Psalms 119:105 teaches us, “Your word is a lamp to my feet, and a light to my path.”
John 1:1 teaches us, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
2 Timothy 3:16-17 teaches us, “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.”
Daily Bible scriptures are there to guide us on the path from today until the day we reach eternity. His Word is always fresh and new to those who dive into it with an expectant heart and a willing spirit to do what it says. All we have to do is open the cover (or your mobile app) and pray for God to open your heart and mind for what He would have for you today.
