"And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever— the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you." ~ John 14:16-17 (NIV) (Emphasis, mine)
Ask the Holy Spirit, who is also referred to as "Counselor" and "the Spirit of truth", to counsel you and to reveal the truths you seek and hope to receive during this time of Bible reading. (I should mention that this is often a good opportunity to pray before you read to confess any sins or anything that might be blocking you from fully receiving God's Word into your heart.)
"But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you." ~ John 14:26 (NIV)
I believe with all my heart that if we begin our time of Bible reading daily and with prayer that we will open our hearts to receive the Word of God in such as way that we not only will be blessed, but also the complete opposite of dryly receiving it, as we could if we didn't pray beforehand, - our cups will surely overfow!
Overflow how? Where? I call them lovebursts. Inside of me sometimes, not all the time, I will admit, it's like the Holy Spirit knocks down a dam and lets the Word soak me through until I am just oozing from within and carrying it forth into my relationships of the days, weeks, months and years.
