Reading the Holy Scriptures daily is one of my absolute favorite things to do. I especially like to read first thing in the morning, right after my prayers and while eating my breakfast feeding both body and soul at the same time.
Reading the Bible was once a drudgery and I can't tell you for sure when that changed but I do know that it was around the time that I made a commitment to get to know my Lord in a more meaningful way. It began with asking God daily to deepen my relationship with Him and over time I began to have a hunger for His word. That is when I started to read His word from beginning to end.
His word began to come alive for me and I began to have insights into God's character and my own character and I began to change from the inside out.
If you really want to know God and really feel His presence in your life don't miss this essential, I highly recommend you adopt this practice of daily reading and if you haven't read straight through from Genesis to Revelation you should really try it.
