The Bible is God’s love letter to you. As you spend time in the Bible each day, you hear from God.  This is crucial to developing a closer relationship with Him and learning how to please Him.  Relationships require two-way communication.  When you read the Bible, you hear from God; but God also wants to hear from you.  You can and should talk with Him about everything in your life.  Furthermore, if you ask anything in keeping with His wishes, you will receive what you ask for.

 

Read the PSALM 119:9-12;15-16:  

9 How can a young man keep his way pure?  By keeping Your word.  10 I have sought You with all my heart; don’t let me wander from Your commands.  11 I have treasured Your word in my heart so that I may not sin against You.  12 Lord, may You be praised; teach me Your statutes [commands].  

 

15 I will meditate on Your precepts and think about Your ways.  16 I will delight in Your statutes [commands]; I will not forget Your word.  

Read Philippians 4:4-7:

4 Rejoice in the Lord always.  I will say it again: Rejoice!  5 Let your graciousness be known to everyone. The Lord is near.  6 Don’t worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition [appeal to] with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.  7 And the peace of God, which surpasses every thought, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
