It’s one thing to make a list of do’s and don’ts, but it’s quite another to have a heart for God’s ways and a soul that longs to obey them. It’s one thing to read about life, it’s another to live it. Obedience is something you do; having a heart to obey is something you pray about.
Lord, help me be diligent to put Your Word inside my soul faithfully every day. Show me where I’m wasting time that could be better spent reading the Bible. Give me the ability to memorize it. Etch it in my mind and heart. Make it become a part of me. Change me as I read it. Help me to obey it.”
