    Daily Bible study is a vital habit because it allows God to talk to you, and start to live through you when you submit to Him. Today I read James one. Here is an example of how much we can learn from daily Bible study.

    12 Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.”

    The Contemporary English version says: “12 God will bless you, if you don’t give up when your faith is being tested. He will reward you with a glorious life, just as he rewards everyone who loves him.”

    God will bless us when we keep fighting and don’t give up.

    15 “Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.”

    A good reminder of what happens if we keep sinning.

    CEV 20 “If you are angry, you cannot do any of the good things God wants done.”

    Anger often leads to an inability to fight temptation. Consider praying often:

    “Father, take away this spirit of anger so that I can more effectively fight off sin.”

    NIV 21 “Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent, and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you.”

    Fight sin, read the Bible, and accept the Word.

    22 “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.”

    Consider memorizing V 22. I also liked the CEV: 22 But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves.

    25 “But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do.”

    Consider memorizing V 25. The perfect law gives us freedom. When we continue in it, and when we do it, we are blessed. What a great verse.

    Make daily Bible study a habit. It is a key to quitting.
