One day, I remember hearing that a habit will form if you stay on track for one month without ceasing. What could I lose?
I found my quiet place and started reading in Genesis. It wasn’t long, of course, before I came to the book of Leviticus and the book of Numbers. I quickly decided to leave the Old Testament and start with the New Testament. I was intrigued, captured in the life of Jesus, the apostles and the meaning of “living for Jesus” When my month of daily Bible readings was over, I had formed a “habit” and continued to finish the New Testament.
Then I returned to the Old Testament, for clarity of meaning, of what Jesus had referred to so many times.
I’m sure that many of you have a similar story, but I’m so thankful that God gave me that first month, removed that stumbling block, and gave me my daily morning quiet time in what my girls called my “prayer chair”.
May God bless you with that quiet time and place and draw near to Him every day.
