While the decision about how often to read your Bible lies with you, there are some important factors for you to consider.
Kenneth Copeland often shares how the Word of God is to your spirit what bread is to your body. When your body feeds on physical food, it produces a physical power called strength. When your spirit feeds on the spiritual food of the Word, it produces spiritual power called faith. And just as you can't eat one meal and then feed on the memory of it for several weeks, you can't just remember what the Word says and stay strong in faith. You have to read it. Even if you've read it a hundred times, you need to read it again.
God gave Joshua the key to success in Joshua 1:8, which says, “Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do.”
The Word of God is your passport to VICTORY. That’s why one of the 7 Habits of Strong Christians is to read the Word daily. They know one snack each week (church on Sunday) isn’t enough to sustain them through the trials Jesus told us would come our way (John 16:33). We need daily, hot meals to stand on top of every trial in a victory stance.
Gloria Copeland has always emphasized the importance of spending time in the Word on a daily basis. She says, you must “arrange your schedule around the Word instead of trying to make the Word fit into your busy life.” That means the Word of God has to become a priority in your life—not something you do in your spare time.
We do this because more Word = more faith and more faith leads to greater and more frequent victories. So, if you want to advance quickly and receive breakthroughs easier and closer together, spend time in the Word of God every day.
