Bible Devotions for Commuters
by Daniel Brown Share page
Anyone who is a Christian should realize that the Bible is very important to their faith. Making it a priority in daily living should be an important goal. Finding time to accomplish this can be a challenge in the hustle and bustle of twenty-first century life. An alternative to traditional Bible reading offers a hope to some folks wanting to be faithful in their devotional Bible study.
We can't go very long in a day without being inundated with messages. From the moment our clock radio begins playing a song, pitching some product or reciting the gloomy news, the words come pouring in to our minds. If we pick up a newspaper or sample a morning talk show the grim outlook of much of the world continues to bombard us.
When we travel to work, school or anywhere else we drive by many more signs and billboards all trying to grab our attention, minds and heart. Then there is the influence of other people with all their ideas, stories, requests and demands.
With all this filling our minds its easy to become overwhelmed. We can't stop all the negative words from entering our minds but we can overpower them with good communication.
The teaching of God's Holy Word will put our mental focus back on track. The question is: "When can I make this happen?"
The best solution is to start the day with a time of quiet devotional meditation. Reading or listening to the Bible and spending time in prayer. When this will not work, an alternative plan is better than nothing at all.
You can listen to an audiobook Bible. Just listen and absorb the message. Not only can this be a substitute for reading but an audiobook bible can also increase the time you spend in God's Word. The cost of an audio Bible can be less than the cost of many printed Bibles. Getting your audio Bible delivered via the internet can reduce the costs even more.
Use your car's cd player, a portable mp3 player, cell phone or personal organizer to listen to the Bible while you travel. It will not only improve your walk with God but also keep the worldly messages out of your thinking.
God's Word itself speaks on the importance of hearing the message.
Revelation 3:13 - He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
Isaiah 1 :2 - Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth: for the Lord hath spoken...
James 1:19 - Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:
It is indeed important to hear God's message. The Bible makes this very clear. Make use of today's technology to strengthen your walk with God. Even ten or fifteen minutes a day would be useful. You probably listen to many songs in a day. Just reducing this a few will give you all the time you need.
This modern age of technical marvels allows us to magnify our efforts. Devotional bible study has never been easier; unfortunately, the world's messages get through with just as much ease. Conquer this influence by listening to the Bible being read for you.
You can get an audio Bible in a number of different translations. There are dramatized readings with voice actors and sound effects or versions with simple narration. Several shorter devotional audiobooks are also available. These are good because they focus on a single topic.
