I Don’t Feel Like Reading My Bible Today!

Because Christians will have days like this we must read our Bibles daily so that there will be enough of the word of God already stored within us to counteract these emotions.

Many Christians who read their Bibles daily have felt like this or even feel like this right now. We get so overwhelmed with situations that have surrounded our lives that our numb feelings begin to flaw our faith. Even Jesus had distressful circumstances at times. (Luke 22:44-Amplified) “ And being in an agony [of mind],…” Angels were sent to strengthen him in stressful situations. (Luke 22:43-Amplified) “ And there appeared to him an angel from heaven, strengthening him in spirit.

From time to time we are incapable of gathering up the strength to read the word of God, whether we are angry at God, ourselves or our situations. Nevertheless if you have the word of God stored within you can battle every thought that does not align with God’s plan to give you the expected end you desire.

Walking by faith ain’t always easy. We sometimes have stronger faith for certain things and less faith for others. Which doesn’t make sense-but that’s why human beings have to renew their minds with the word daily. There will be days like this in your Christian journey.
Worship and praise songs heal the soul and help connect the spirit man with the holy spirit of God. Television or radio ministries also help to charge our faith as well.

If you are reading this article and don’t feel like reading your Bible today-its okay. Just praise God, thank God for sending Jesus Christ for your life. Use the prayer of Reinhold Niebuhr “ God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”

God said that he will never fail you four times in Hebrews 13:5(Amplified) “…….; for He [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will ] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (relax my hold on you)! [Assuredly not!].”

Please be assured today that without a doubt- you have been called to virtue, predestined to live the good life . You are a wonderful creation of God and no matter what your present situation will enrich, empower, and encourage others to emulate your example when you demonstrate your sincere dependency on God.

Don’t let the tradition of your feelings flaw your faith and make the work of God void in your present circumstances( Mark 7:13-Amplified). Ask God to strengthen your faith as he said he can do in Romans 16:25(Amplified) “ Now to him Who is able to strengthen you in the faith which is in accordance with my Gospel and the preaching of (concerning)Jesus Christ (the Messiah),…”

God will give you a ray of hope to get through the days you don’t feel like reading your Bible-so you can wait on his plan for you to manifest. Then you will be strengthened in faith to read your Bible the next day.

On these days, take the word you know and make it yours. Give it back to God as David did in 2nd Samuel 7:25-29(Amplified) “ Now, O Lord God, confirm forever the word You have given as to Your servant and his house; and do as You have said,…………..for You, O Lord God, have spoken it,…….”

Tell God that just as you need assistance in your present situation, that enable you will be of assistance to someone else with their circumstances-while you wait for someone to help you. The American Pastor Mike Murdoch has a book of 7 spiritual principles for success of which one of them states that “ Because I help make things happen for others-God makes things happen for me.” 

 Also go to a near by church-not necessarily your place of worship and volunteer for that day. This will take your mind off your own issue, which will ultimately remind you of how big and great your God is.

  2. Here is my reality: I'm interested in getting into the Bible about two mornings out of seven. I lack the desire the other five mornings a week. How do I know that I lack the desire? Just about every other distraction -- right down to fragmenting my computer hard drive -- is more interesting in that moment than opening the Bible.
