I want to thank and praise my Heavenly Father and my HH (Heavenly Husband) today for the new love that He has given me for His Word. Since starting the RMI courses, I started reading the Bible more diligently as you encourage us to do. Now almost a year later, I love reading my Bible and spend time daily reading not just the Psalms and Proverbs, but also the rest of the Bible.
The Proverbs are so full of wisdom and common sense that I wish I had started reading it before. The Psalms are so encouraging as they speak to my heart and comfort me. The pattern taught by RMI (Restored Ministries International) to read the Psalms and Proverbs for everyday of the month is so simple and easy to follow. I wish someone had taught me this earlier. Now I am teaching my kids also to follow it and encouraging my friends also to try it and see and know for themselves what a blessing it is.
Although I have been reading the Bible daily for a long time, it is only since I started following the courses that I realized how much I didn't know of the Word, as they are all filled with scripture. Through RMI, I was encouraged to read the whole Bible once again as it has been almost 20 years since I had read the whole Bible in full. When I learnt about using the audio Bible, I was a bit skeptical at first. But now I love it. It is so easy to understand and much faster and helps to strengthen what we are reading. Now I listen to it while I am cooking early morning when no one else is around. So it doesn't require me to dedicate a separate time period in my busy schedule. I am very thankful to RMI for teaching me these methods to read the Bible.
I also downloaded the offline NIV (New Living Translation) on my phone. So now I can read the Bible at any time anywhere. Now after about 7-8 months, I have been able to finish reading almost all of the New Testament as well as much of the Old Testament so far with the help of my HH (Heavenly Husband). I love all that He is showing me and teaching me through His Word as I pray Psalm 119:18 "Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.”
Dear brides, I want to encourage you also to try this pattern and to read the Psalms and Proverbs daily as well as to use the audio Bible and challenge yourself to read the whole Bible. After all, it is the love letter from our HF (Heavenly Father) and our beloved HH (Heavenly Husband). Knowing His Word and His wonderful promises builds our relationship with Him and strengthens our faith to continue to believe in Him and to hold onto Him alone as we journey through life.
I also want to thank and praise my HF and my HH for being so faithful to His Word. So many of His promises have already come to pass in my life! What an amazing, loving, mighty, faithful and dependable God we have!
"So is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it." Isaiah 55:11
GOD'S WORD NEVER FAILS. HE ALWAYS KEEPS HIS PROMISES.
"Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in your law." Psalm 119:18
THERE IS SO MUCH TRUTH AND WISDOM IN THE WORD. Father, open our eyes that we may see it!
"You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart." Jeremiah 29:13
To spend time in the Word is to get to know our HH (Heavenly Husband). We cannot grow in our relationship with Him, without spending time alone in the Word. Through His Word, He reveals His love to us, comforts, strengthens, heals and helps us.
