The Future Is As Bright As The Promises Of God

Teach Me Your Ordinances

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. I have sworn and I will confirm it, that I will keep Your righteous ordinances.” Psalm 119:105-106 (NASB)
“I never pretend to make but one book my study. I read them occasionally, but have little time or inclination to read other books much while I have so much to learn of my Bible. I find it like a deep mine, the more I work it, the richer it grows. We must read that more than any other or all other books. We must pause and pray over it, verse after verse, and compare part with part, dwell on it, digest it, and get it into our minds, till we feel that the Spirit of God has filled us with the spirit of holiness.
Will you do it? Will you lay your hearts open to God, and not give Him rest, till He has filled you with divine knowledge? Will you search the Scriptures? I have often been asked by young converts, and young men preparing for the ministry, what they should read. Read the Bible. I would give the same answer five hundred times. Over and above all other things, study the Bible.” Charles Finney

    There is always something new to glean from its pages. I heard once that we shouldn’t just read the Bible – we should ransack it. Blessings!

  2. What a great quote…I’ll definitely be saving this one as a reminder. Thank you for sharing it today!
