When you open your Bible, where do you start? Perhaps you’ve asked these questions: Where do I start in my Bible? Is there any difference between reading and studying (or “basking in”) the Bible?

No matter your age or life circumstance, you will find encouragement, advice, and practical strategies in this new book by our friend Nina Atcheson. In it, you will discover how basking in the power of God’s Word will make you want to linger with God—because time with Him is so sweet.
If you ask for prayer requests at a typical prayer meeting or church service, you may notice the responses have common themes—prayers for health, jobs, finances, or relationships. You may notice something missing, however: deeply personal prayer requests about internal battles, spiritual struggles, or for help in facing doubt, fear, and discouragement. Are we praying about our own needs in moments alone with God? Are we wrestling with Him through personal conflict? Asking for guidance and wisdom? Talking to Him like a friend about the things on our hearts? Prayer doesn’t only change the world around us. It changes us.

That’s one reason character studies are so powerful. We pray the following tips are helpful for you as you go deeper in studying the Bible characters we find in God's Word!
We pray you are blessed by this powerful message from Mark Finley. Proverbs 23:7 tells us, "For as he thinks in his heart, so is he."

For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks." So what we think and what we keep in our heart affects every area of our life. How important than, that we guard our thoughts.

There is nothing that the Seventh-day Adventist Church needs more than a genuine spiritual revival. There is nothing that Satan fears more than this promised revival. There is nothing more important for church administrators, pastors, and church members than seeking this revival together. There is no greater priority. In this video message, Pastor Mark Finley invites us to consider our greatest need, and to pray for the revival that only God can send.
