God loves new beginnings and fresh starts—and He has good things in store for our lives! I hope you’re as excited as I am to find out exactly what He has planned and that starting today you’ll make it your number one goal to get closer to Him than you’ve ever been before.

Did you know that prayer and studying the Bible are two of the best ways to develop a close, personal relationship with God? I have been talking with God and studying the Bible for more than 40 years and it has radically transformed my life! God has changed my perspectives and attitudes, and healed and restored my soul through the power of His Word.

Even now, I’m amazed by all of the benefits we have through our relationship with Jesus and the truths we can discover in His Word. It’s an Amazing, Life–Changing Journey! When I began my journey with God, my life was a mess. I’d grown up in an abusive home. I was angry, insecure and emotionally unstable, and I didn’t have any idea how to access the peace and joy that God’s Word says we can have. So, it’s no surprise to me that countless believers today are struggling with similar problems. Discouragement, hopelessness, fear, insecurity, and many other self-defeating attitudes keep believers from the amazing life God has for them. The good news is, there is hope for anyone who will trust God and follow His lead! He gives us everything we need through a personal relationship with Jesus and His Word. When you give your heart to Christ, the Holy Spirit comes to live in you (see John 14:16-17). John 16:7 (AMP) says He is our… Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor—Counselor, Strengthener, Standby). And John 16:13 says, When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth…

These two verses show us that we are never alone. God has given us the Holy Spirit to be our Helper and to guide us in our understanding of His Word.

So if you feel intimidated by the word study and think you just can’t understand the Bible, I want you to know you can! The Holy Spirit will help you if you will ask Him to do so.
