Here are three important things you need in order to improve your walk with God. They are:

1. Reading the Bible

The need for this can not be overemphasized. How can you know, love and work on your relationship with God when you don’t even know Him? It’s impossible. Anyone serious about growing in their knowledge of our Heavenly Father needs to spend time with His Word.

Reading the Bible is the best thing you can do as it not only helps you know God , it also makes it easier to win the daily spiritual battles of life (Psalm 1:1–2).

Don’t focus so much on how much or how long you spend reading, care more about the quality of what you reading and how well you it.

Charles Spurgeon puts it perfectly: “Some people like to read so many chapters every day. I would not dissuade them from the practice, but I would rather lay my soul asoak in half a dozen verses all day than rinse my hand in several chapters. Oh, to be bathed in a text of Scripture, and to let it be sucked up into your very soul, till it saturates your heart! Set your heart upon God’s Word! Let your whole nature be plunged into it as cloth into a dye!”

Don’t just read, meditate

It’s one thing to just read, its a totally different thing to meditate on the Word of God. The term itself comes from a Latin verb meditari, which means “to think, contemplate, devise, ponder”. As such, meditating involves not just reading but really focusing on what you read even when you are no longer reading it.

By doing this, you become more familiar with the scriptures, making it a lot easier for God’s words to become effective in your life. Simply put, mediating turns you into a doer, not just a hearer or reader.

Joshua 1:8 says, “Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.”

2. Be grateful no matter what

1 Thessalonians 5:18 says to “ in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”

In this life, we get to choose the kind of people we want to be. You can either be sad or happy. You can choose to be anxious and worried about any and everything or choose to say thank you God instead trusting that your Father in heaven is making all things work together for good(Romans 8:28).

3. By choosing to have a positive mindset, you get “the peace of God.”

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus,” says Philippians 4:6–7.

Trust me, these three things will totally change your life.
