You see a vision, you see a dream. Yet, you want a better understanding to fill in the details. 

Reading is a pathway to slow your thoughts down, to take in new understanding, to learn, and to reframe your way of being. 

Romans 12:2 – Be transformed by the renewing of your mind. 

There are certain books that I can point to that made significant adjustments in my thought patterns. Books like, Thinking Fast and Slow, and The Four Hour Workweek gave me clear strategies that I applied to change everything. 

Why is this so? 

Books are a collection of one man’s knowledge about a specific area. If you spend your life learning something and then you write about it, others can learn from your story. They can avoid stumbling or detours because of the roadmap you’ve shared.

And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; Revelations 12:11

For Non Readers

If you are not an avid reader, I challenge you today to choose one small book to read this week. Here are a few recommendations: 

Each of these books took me about one hour to read. Sometimes, I read them over the course of a few days, but this is a great start for anyone. 

Devotionals 

Another reading strategy you can use is to read a devotional. Devotionals usually have one chapter or lesson per day that you can apply to your heart. Some of my favorites are: 

The last one is the Bible plan I used to read the entire Bible. This leads me to my final and most important reading strategy…

Reading the Bible

A daily commitment to read the Bible, the Word of God, is the most life-changing decision I have ever made. When I read the Bible, my relationship with God went from hearsay to a real personal knowledge of who God is. I recommend this decision for everyone who truly wants to know who God is and truly desires truth in their lives.

Even if it takes you ten years, commit to reading God’s Word. Commit to knowing God’s Word through meditation and memory. Commit to praying God’s Word and you will see the POWER and the FIRE of God show up in your life. It’s inevitable. 

Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. (James 4:8)
