We recommend that you prayerfully go through the Pursuing Intimacy With God I & II Bible studies, which will help you to pursue and obtain the fullest possible intimate fellowship and partnership with Jesus Christ. He wants to give you a full and meaningful and satisfying life, and you can only have this when you have an intimate and right love relationship with Jesus.

  • GOD ENCOURAGES & COMFORTS & ASSURES US THROUGH HIS WORD:
"The only way to remove the fear from our lives is to listen to God's assurances to us"       (Oswald Chambers)

  • THE WORD OF GOD GIVES US A WEAPON BY WHICH WE CAN FIGHT OFF SATAN AND HIS LIES & ATTACKS: (EPHESIANS 6)

  ( IN MATTHEW 4 JESUS FIGHTS TEMPTATION & WINS BY QUOTING SCRIPTURES 3 TIMES: "IT IS WRITTEN,... ".)

  • GOD'S WORD TEACHES US AND GUIDES US DOWN THE PATHS HE HAS  PLANNED FOR OUR LIVES:  (GOD KNOWS WHAT IS BEST)
           
       - "YOUR WORD IS A LAMP TO MY FEET, AND A LIGHT FOR MY PATH."
                                                                                 
- PSALM 119:105

       - 
PSALM 16:8-11       - ISAIAH 48:17-18      - JEREMIAH 29:11

  • GOD'S LAWS AND PRINCIPLES PROTECT US AND ARE FOR OUR GOOD:

       - THE PRECEPTS OF THE LORD ARE RIGHT, GIVING JOY TO THE HEART."
                                                                                 
- PSALM 19:8

       - "THIS IS LOVE FOR GOD: TO OBEY HIS COMMANDS. AND HIS COM-       
          MANDS ARE NOT BURDENSOME."         
- I JOHN 5:3
           
  • READ GOD'S WORD AS IF YOU ARE DIGGING FOR GREAT TREASURES:
     
      - " WITH MY LIPS I RECOUNT ALL THE LAWS THAT COME FROM YOUR       
           MOUTH. I REJOICE IN FOLLOWING YOUR STATUTES AS ONE REJOICES 
           IN
GREAT RICHES."                                - PSALM 119:13,14

      - EFFECTS OF LIVING BY GOD'S WORD:         
PSALM 19:7-11


  • FROM HOWARD HENDRICKS: "LIVING BY THE BOOK":
           - READ THE BIBLE AS IF IT WERE A
LOVE LETTER FROM GOD.
           -
OBSERVATION, INTERPRETATION, APPLICATION
(You can't apply God's word correctly unless you correctly interpret it, and you can't interpret it correctly unless you learn to observe all you can)

- ASK QUESTIONS: WHO, WHAT, WHERE, WHEN, WHY, WHAT NOW ?
           -  LOOK FOR THINGS THAT ARE:
- EMPHASIZED
- REPEATED
- RELATED
- ALIKE
- UNALIKE
- TRUE TO LIFE (HUMANITY OF IT)


  • REMEMBER, YOU'RE SPENDING TIME WITH A PERSON, NOT A RELIGIOUS BOOK.
  • PERSONALIZE GOD'S WORD SO THAT IT FITS YOUR SPECIFIC CIRCUMSTANCES.     
  • READ GOD'S WORD ALOUD, AS THOUGH GOD HIMSELF WERE TALKING. (EASIER FOR YOUR MIND TO FOCUS)
