John Maxwell has said, “You will never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine.” I believe this is absolutely true. I have seen in my own life the amazing accomplishments you can have with the benefit of a daily routine.

I’ve often joked publicly that I would be a very easy person to assassinate. I have such a consistent daily routine it would not take long to figure out where I am each day and what I’m doing. But it is the key to achieving my goals and seeing my dreams come true.

Would you like to change your life for the better? Can you imagine what it would be like if this year you experienced success like never before? I know it is possible. But where to begin.

How about reading the Bible daily for 2019? Of the many changes you could make to your daily routine there is nothing that can have more impact than this. Just one chapter each day will change your life.

It will change you because the Bible renews your mind. Romans 12:2 says, “Don’t be like the people of this world but let God change the way you think. Then you will know how to do everything that is good and pleasing to him.”

When you read the Bible, you begin to think differently. And then you start acting differently. You live in a way where doing God’s will becomes natural to you. Over time this literally transforms your life, you don’t just change a little you become a new person.

As you read a chapter each day you gain more wisdom. You simply become a wiser person. There is nothing more valuable than having wisdom for the many decisions you have to make. More important than just intellect or education, wisdom can bless your life in a myriad of ways.

You may think it is too time consuming or difficult to read the Bible every day. But if you just read one chapter it will only take a few minutes. We have a Daily Bible Reading Guide that has 365 chapters highlighting the overall message of God’s Word. All you have to do is read one chapter a day.
