It’s the beginning of a new month, which means it’s time for more inspiration! August is the time of year when some people go back to school, and others start to look forward to fall. So this month’s inspiration will be focused on renewing (or igniting for the first time!) your passion to study God’s Word. Are ya ready? Let’s go!
Just the other day, I heard this song for the first time at church. I don’t know what it is, but something about it brings me such joy and fans the flame in my soul for the Lord. What better way to get pumped for some Bible study? It’s called King Of My Heart featuring John and Sarah McMillan.
A source that I’ve found that helps me when I’m not sure where to start in my Bible: the Joyce Meyer Ministries Daily Devotional. It’s short and sweet and is the perfect thing to get you thinking about a subject to study. A verse is always included (yay!) which is helpful for me on days I forget to spend time in the Bible itself. The subject matter is everything from inspirational to practical teachings for living life with Christ.
Here’s some visual inspiration of what you Bible study time can be like! While I was preparing to write this post I did a little research on YouTube about different Bible study routines. This one was one of the most thorough and simple that I found. It really is an inspiration! I also love that it’s a morning routine, because I believe mornings are a great time to spend quality time with God. Why? It’s that time of day when nothing has happened yet, and the time that sets the tone for the rest of your day.
This month, try a new method of Bible study. If you usually read chapters or sections, try reading verses based on a subject and vice versa. Trying new ways to do things is a great way to freshen up your routine! And in my personal experience, I learn much better when things are feeling fresh and exciting. Time to step outside of the box!
For August, I challenge you to set more time aside than usual to spend some quality time with God. Even if it’s just five minutes! A little more of God in our lives is always a good thing. You could do this by tacking on extra time to your normal routine, or by adding a whole new God-based routine at a different time of day. Whatever you choose to do, get it done! And enlist some of your friends to take this challenge with you!
That’s it for August! I hope you feel inspired and ready to get back to Bible study with a new fervor. If you enjoyed this post and want even more inspiration, check out last month’s inspiration roundup !
Have a great month and see you in September!
