Chapter 2 • How to Read God's Word
Don't Get Discouraged!

Don't Get Discouraged!

It is the rare individual who can actually find time to sit down and read the Bible every day. Illness, crises, work schedules, babies, vacations, and a myriad of other factors can interfere with our time in the Word.

Satan would love for you to feel guilty about missing your reading. In fact, he would love for you to get so discouraged as to give up altogether! He doesn't want you in God's Word even a little bit.

But Jesus prayed, "Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth." (Jn. 17:17) God loves you even if you miss reading His Word, and He's delighted for you when you pick it up again because He knows you will be blessed.

Don't get discouraged if you miss a day or more of reading. The plan is designed to keep you up with the rest of us. Therefore, if you miss a week's reading, just join back in the next week so you will remain at the same place with the rest of us.

Remember, the Walk with the Word Reading Schedule repeats every 3.3 years. Therefore, you will be able to pick up the missed portion of Scripture on the next go-around!
