Study to Show Thyself Approved

Last night I asked the Lord in prayer if He would give me a fresh hunger and love for His word and for truth.  Immediately after my petition, without any desire to find this or that, but with only the desire to read scripture before falling asleep for the night, my eyes rested squarely on 2 Timothy 2:15, 

“Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needs not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth”. 

The Lord speaks through His word, many times in mysterious ways. The more we believe He is near, the more we hear.

I read chunks and pieces of scripture daily, without it I would be a mess, but I am no studious workman rightly dividing the word of truth.  George Muller read the bible through over 100 times in his lifetime; he was a studious workman of the bible.   I would never give up reading and meditating on chunks and pieces of scripture throughout the day as needed, but I can testify that the Lord is convicting me to also become a student of the bible.

So, what do you think?
