I've found that, recently, I cannot focus whip reading the Bible. It is so hard for me to. I don't know why. Please help me. But I am learning to trust in God, so I will ask Him to help me tonight, and trust in Him to help.
I agree with Euphemia.I've found that, recently, I cannot focus whip reading the Bible. It is so hard for me to. I don't know why. Please help me. But I am learning to trust in God, so I will ask Him to help me tonight, and trust in Him to help.
Yeah, that has happened in my experience as well.I agree with Euphemia.
Be encouraged though because even IF this issue persists, know that you are STILL getting benefit from reading. The word goes in you and the Holy Spirit will bring back what you read to your mind when necessary. I know this to be true from experience.
I found that it is natural for me to think of Godly things before praying or reading the Bible.It happens to many of us.
The important thing is to keep reading. Keep praying.
Develop the personal discipline to continue. (Did you ever consider the connection between the words "discipline" and "disciple").
If you can, arrange things so that distractions are minimized before you open the word. Pray about this.
Sometimes reading a favorite passage can help you gain focus, and from there you can turn to the portion of His word that the enemy is trying to keep you from reading.
Try an audio Bible.....just as a substitute at times when you cannot focus....not for always, because the Word was meant to be kept before your eyes......and in all honesty if you read it out loud....after awhile it really does sink in deeper...because both sets of ears are hearing the Word. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. Romans 10:17.lol, me too.
