Yesterday I had some unexpected time without consistent internet, and I decided to open my new Passion Translation of the Psalms.
God met me powerfully as I read the familiar Psalm 1 in unfamiliar wording.
God can awaken our passion for His Word when we invite Him to stir up our hunger.
I would like to encourage those of you who feel your reading of the Word is flat or stale to ask God to increase your hunger.
Then do something you haven’t done before…
Look up a favorite passage on Bible Gateway, and see the Word afresh in new wording. You may discover a new version to capture your imagination again.
Memorize a verse which speaks to where you are currently at. Write it out, find a graphic you like, post it where it can stay foremost on your mind.
Be creative. Buy a new version of the Bible and underline, highlight, doodle or draw to your heart’s content as you interact with His Word.
Listen to Holy Spirit. As He leads you to dig deeper, He will point the way, and help you digest what He has to fill you today.
Allow Him to rekindle your delight in His Word anew!
