I should be so pumped about reading the bible! It’s the absolute truth. It has so many promises. For me personally. It’s for anybody willing to take the time and effort to do what it says. There’s a promise to find the knowledge of God. I want to KNOW God. There’s a promise that tells me how to do it!
“My son, if you receive my words and treasure up my commandments with you, making your ear attentive to wisdom and inclining your heart to understanding; yes if you call out for insight and raise your voice for understanding, if you seek it like silver and search for it as for hidden treasures, en you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God.” (Proverbs 2:1-5)
In Proverbs 3 it talks about how to add years of life and peace to you. And finding favor and good success with God and man. How to add healing and refreshment to your body. He to have long life, riches, and honor. All these things and more are in just one chapter. I believe that God can’t lie, so I believe this to be true.
The whole bible is full of promises, and I want to find out all that is available to me.
