Why the Bible helps

Opening my bible is like going to heaven, and my worldly worries and cares fade he mor I read.By about 20 pages God has refreshed me, spoken and I am now strong enough to pray with confidence.

Reading the bible is like gazing at God. You are quietly communing with Him spirit to Spirit.He is such a relief to be with, and so opposite to the world.

An hour or two spent in the word, is well spent. Quietly and gently the Holy Spirit teases out and removes anything unholy from contact with the world. God is the best Companion and He does so much quietly that it is hardly noticeable. Also there is a lot He does not take credit for, it seems. Freeing, healing, reconstructing and recondititoning you for the rest of the day.

When you have daily contact with the world, you need the friendship of God. The Bible is an easy read and refreshes my soul quicker than spending the same time in natural surroundings.Sure, nature revives, through us connecting with it. But it is the Bible that provides a different and very essential refreshing. There is a great use for nature. For me because it is Gods work, it refreshes better than any man-made environment.

Also, the bible increases faith quickest out of the normally available disciplines available to me. Being out in the countryside refreshes me too, but the advantage of the Bible is the way it increases faith in ways nature cannot.

After Bible reading faith is more alive, and the true me comes alive. My identity returns slowly and surely, and my soul has returned to its natural orbit around God.

I am looking at what God is writing to me and also hearing in my inner ear what God is saying through His still, small voice.

There is no book I can commend more than the Bible. I would urge you to read it over and over again. It will always build you up. God will speak to you in the present.
