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? How can I get to know the Person behind the words on the pages of my 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.
In this video, filmed at 3ABN, Melody Mason shares her personal journey from "Wilderness Living" to "Daring to Ask for More," for God's glory. We are told "Prayer is the key in the hand of faith to unlock heaven’s storehouse, where are treasured the boundless resources of Omnipotence." Do we recognize the value of this key? What about when we pray and pray and God still doesn't answer? What then? How can we grow a faith that will not be knocked over in the storms of life? The following testimony will address just such questions, and much more.
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.
Have you ever wanted to learn how to study Bible characters? Moses. Noah. Ruth. Hezekiah. These biblical characters can seem larger than life.

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!

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.
