Blessed is the man
who walks not in the counsel of the wicked,
nor stands in the way of sinners,
nor sits in the seat of scoffers;
but his delight is in the law of the Lord,
and on his law he meditates day and night.
Psalm 1:1–2 ESV
Have you ever spent seasons where getting into the Bible felt more like drudgery than delight?
Where you felt guilty, because you knew you should be studying God’s word every day, but you simply never felt like doing it?
If so, you’re not alone. Hundreds of our readers recently participated in a survey for us (thank you!). And about 16 percent said that their biggest struggle in their devotional life was a lack of desire to “read the Bible and pray.”
This certainly isn’t something to feel guilty about. Instead, it’s a reality a lot of us face. But what if it could be different?
