We should never stop studying and never give up our quest for knowledge. Even as Christians we need to study to know God in a better way for ourselves. God is so big there is no way we can ever get to know all about Him in one setting, but we each need to constantly study. The Scripture reminds us that we should study to show ourselves approved unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth. I encourage you today to never stop studying to get to know God better, and to know the Word of God for yourself. As you study the Word of God you will learn more about Him, and how He can direct your path in life. Study so you can stand on His Word when the storms of life begin to rage. Study to have strength when it feels like the weight of the world is on your shoulders. Study to build your faith in God, so no matter what happens or what anyone else may say you know God for yourself. Study to serve Him better and worship and praise Him better. Study just to be in His presence more, for it is in His presence is where you will find all that you need to make it through all that you go through. I want to know God better each day of my life, so I will study to show myself approved, and since I will study to know Him better, I have no doubt, "It's My Year To Get My Thing From My God!"
Lord I want to know you better for myself. Help me to see you in your Word as I study to grw closer to you. I love you Lord. In Jesus Name Amen.
