I want to motivate you to spend more time in the Word this month. Since there are 31 days in July and 31 chapters in Proverbs, I encourage you to read a chapter a day. I’ll be reading a chapter a day myself, and I will also incorporate the scriptures into my posts.

Since today is July 2nd, here’s a passage from Proverbs 2:

My child, listen to what I say, and treasure my commands. Tune your ears to wisdom, and concentrate on understanding. Cry out for insight, and ask for understanding. Search for them as you would for silver; seek them like hidden treasures. Then, you will understand what it means to fear the Lord, and you will gain knowledge of God. For the Lord grants wisdom. (Proverbs 2:1-6 NLT)

Begin to earnestly pray for wisdom and understanding this week. Speaking from personal experience, God will answer your prayers, and the wisdom and understanding He gives is priceless! **G.I.G.**

TIP: A lot of people find reading the Word intimidating, because it’s difficult to comprehend at times. If you can relate (I know I can), try reading the Bible in different translations. If you have a Bible app on your phone or computer, then you have several translations at your finger tips. My favorites are the New Living Translation (NLT), The Message (MSG), the Common English Bible (CEB), and the World English Bible (WEB). Try out as many as you need to until you find one that makes the Word easier to understand…Sometimes I bounce between 2 or 3 translations while reading, because each translation offers a different way of looking at the scriptures.
