I have hidden your word in my heart...
I once heard someone say when we stop learning, we stop growing. I've read through the Bible several times. I am familiar with so many of the stories that I can quote it as I go. It can be so easy to 'skim' through the words as I read because I know the words so well.
But if I think I have 'arrived' and cannot learn more from the Word, I am sorely mistaken! Just because I can quote David and Goliath front, back and sideways, doesn't mean I don't learn from it every time I read it.
God's Word is the Living Word. Each time I read it, I get something different even though the words are the same. It may be that I am in a different place in my life or maybe that God just has something different for me this time. But I always learn.
Just because you've read the Bible once, read it again! Just because you know the story from Sunday School, read it anyway. Don't be tempted to skim it or skip it altogether. Read it! Hide it in your heart over and over again.
