We loved hearing stories as children. Stories such as the one about a young boy who slayed the ferocious giant with only two stones and a sling. And the one about the parting of the great red sea. Then there is the young boy with a coat of many colors. Yes, these are all stories from the Bible. As children they were fun stories to hear. 

Now that we are older we understand that the Bible is more than just a book of stories. The Word of God is not a storybook or a religious book. It is a manual for life which shows us the past, present and future. It is more than words, and when you believe in it and follow the instructions provided, it will change your life. That is why the Word of God says: 

“The people who sat in darkness have seen a great light…” Matthew 4:16  

Perhaps your life is in darkness. When you look at your mind, health, family and finances all you see is darkness. Well, you have the greatest instruction manual available to bring you into light. Every time you read it, it brings you closer to the life you want. 

Make a promise to yourself and to God that you will spend more time in His Word. The benefits of doing so are lifechanging!  

May the God of the Bible bless you
