Bible 360

posted by joel

joel osteen, daily bible reading, words of encouragement, If you watch our weekly program, you’ve noticed that at the beginning of each service, we raise our Bibles and declare, “This is my Bible, I have what it says I have; I can do what is says I can do…” If there’s one thing I’ve learned about God’s Word, it’s that you cannot expect to receive the good things of God if you don’t know about them.

At a very early age, I developed a habit of reading my Bible every day. As a kid, I remember so many mornings watching my dad at the kitchen table with a cup of coffee and an open Bible. He’d take a big sip of hot coffee and let out a big “Ahhhhhh.” Sometimes his eyes never left His Bible, and sometimes he’d look over at me and grin.

Today, there are so many great ways to read and study God’s Word. I’m amazed at how many people hold up their iPads and phones when we say, “This is my Bible…” in church. Technology has made it easier to carry God’s Word with us everywhere we go, and it has made studying the Bible more productive, even fun.

I have an app on my phone called Bible360 that my friends Mark Burnett and Roma Downey told me about. With apps like Bible 360, you can find scriptures quicker and easier, cross-reference different translations, and learn more about biblical history. You can even take virtual tours of ancient places or go where Jesus walked and taught. You may find that when you have a great Bible app or find an interesting Bible study website, you begin to look forward to reading your Bible more or studying things that you have always wondered about.

I encourage you to make reading your Bible a habit. Set aside at least 10 minutes every morning to read and study God’s Word. When you do this, you’ll grow in the things of God, discover His plan for your life, and live the victorious life that He means for you to live.

It's Time For Some "First Times"
One time at church, I was talking to a college student. She was about to take a very important final exam. She asked, "Joel, would you pray that God will help me make a C on this test?" I kind of laughed and said, "Why wouldn't we want to pray that God would help you make an A?" She said, "Oh, all I

Standing In The Place of Power
We all have times when things come against us. Times when we feel cheated, mistreated, wronged or taken advantage of. Maybe you're facing a difficulty today and you're not exactly sure how to handle it. If we look to the Word, we see that Jesus set a powerful example for us to follow. Here He was

What To Wear Today
If you're like me, when you wake up in the morning, you start thinking about your day—where you'll be going, who you'll be seeing, and what the weather will be like. Then you go to your closet and choose something to wear that will work for all those different scenarios. But there's one thing that

Stay On Winning Side
Right before Jesus was arrested and taken to the cross, He had a conversation with one of his disciples, Peter. He said, "Peter, you are going to deny me three times tonight." But Peter loved Jesus and refused to believe it, "No way! I would never deny You. I'll stand by You 'til the end!" Sure enou

Thank God For Generational Blessings
We can all look back through our family lines and see how our parents, grandparents, great-grandparents and others in our family history have affected our lives. Sometimes people see negative things that have been passed down, but the blessing of God is passed down as well. In fact, Exodus 20:6 says
