Do you have any resolutions for this New Year? Would you like to be a person who is complete and thoroughly equipped? Here is how to accomplish that feat. “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” (2 Timothy 3:16-17 NKJV) Notice he says “All Scripture”. God intended for us to study every bit of His Word that he has preserved for us. If we are waiting on someone else to teach us the entire Bible, it will never happen if for no other reason than there will never be enough time. We must strive to study His Word for ourselves and look for how it applies in our daily walk. Why not start a good habit today of reading your Bible daily? I would also suggest that each time as you begin your reading, say a short prayer asking for God’s guidance in helping you to understand and apply His word as He wills for you to do.

Today’s reading: Genesis 1-3
