Tips on doing devotion
|As James says in James 1:22-25, God's word is a mirror.
When we look into the mirror, we see an image of ourselves through God's
word. And we will be blessed if we apply this word into our lives,
22 Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.
23 Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror
24 and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like.
25 But the man who looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues to do this, not forgetting what he has heard, but doing it--he will be blessed in what he does.
How do I read the word and get insight from God in His word?
This is the beginning of learning from the word and obtaining insights
for yourself. If you have tried answering the questions above, you will
realize that you can select an entire verse (or verses) from the bible
and get your insight or narrow down to a word or a phrase. You can enjoy
the verse and you can apply that verse into your life. Once you have
enjoyed the verse, you can meditate on His word and carry that revelation
with you for the day. It is like getting fresh manna from God directly
Please note : all verses should be read in context. But each word,
each phrase or each passage can be expounded on by itself.
These are just some examples.
|1. Do your own personal devotion.
2. Enter your own insights.
3. Select your favorite verses.
|1. Read other member's insights.
2. Share insights with others.
