A recurring phenomenon is the effect a daily reading of the bible has upon the reader (me). It would seem that random readings would have little effect, but the opposite is true. The bible must be a living, dynamic force or the positive effects couldn't be experienced. Find a plan, any plan, and as you follow it, anyone will experience an uplift. Answers to why this or why that will be revealed. Insights into how to do this or how to do that will come. How to get from where you are to where you want to be will be laid out. The reasons for a current situation whether good or bad will be given. All this in the privacy of your thoughts along with the grace to be forgiven, renewed, re-directed, strengthened, encouraged, convicted, or whatever is needed.
