Then he said to them, "Go, eat of the fat, drink of the sweet, and send portions to him who has nothing prepared; for this day is holy to our Lord. Do not be grieved, for the joy of the Lord is your strength." So the Levites calmed all the people, saying, "Be still, for the day is holy; do not be grieved." All the people went away to eat, to drink, to send portions and to celebrate a great festival, because they understood the words which had been made known to them." Nehemiah 8:10-12
Each of these Studies in the Word are “Portions” written to feed, nourish and equip believers for the journey the lies ahead. When Joshua prepared the people to enter into the promised land, he instructed them to prepare provisions for their journey.
PORTIONS FOR THE JOURNEY HAS A THREE FOLD MISSION:
To “prepare portions” by which Christians can be fed through personal or small group study of the Word to enable believers to grow in their relationship with the Lord.
To teach believers how to read and meditate in the Word for themselves so they will be able have “a firm root in themselves” and to be able to stand firm in days of trial or persecution. (Matt. 13:21; Mark 4:17; Luke 8:13)
To pray more effectively through learning how to meditate and pray the Scriptures and provide strategies to allow your prayer time to be more effective.
The lessons are designed to be useful for the beginning Bible reader or for those who have been believers for many years. You do not need to be the “scholarly sort” of person to really benefit from learning to meditate in the Word of God. To gain the true benefit from the studies, have your Bible open in front of you and look up the verses that are provided with the studies.
