Benefits of Bible Study



I believe I benefit from the Bible, every book of the Bible, chapter and verse. Repetition is a great teacher and I have recently learned a new appreciation of the Book of Job.                                                                                       SEPTEMBER 2014 002

First, I share the first two words that come to mind when considering Job.

• Suffering
• Patience

Before I reveal a third I want to tell how I discovered it. Each year, I try to take a fresh approach to my Bible study, using different translations, read-the-Bible through plans etc. This year, for my very first time I am using the Nave’s Topical Bible; in my journal, I enter scriptures by themes. As examples: grace, mercy, peace and joy.

• Joy

I have just begun joy scriptures. To my amazement, I have found scripture references from Job!

• Job 8:21
• Job 22:21
• Job 22:26
• Job 33:26 “He shall pray to God, and He will delight in him, he shall see his face with joy, for he restores to man His righteousness (NKJ).”

  1. Dannie…Just a thought, maybe joy is a treasure that is buried within our sorrows…
    like the prize in a Cracker Jacks box only an enduring gift…

    Wing His Words,

    I had to check out the verses. I’ve read the Book of Job a lot, too, but never ever saw the topic of “Joy.” Thanks for spotlighting that for me!
