Dave Kraft in his above book submits the “Four R’s.” It’s simple and easy to remember. More importantly though, I believe it’ll be a helpful process for you reading and retaining the truths you read in the Word.
- Read. Read and mark the words and verses that speak to you.
- Reflect. Think about what you marked.
- Respond. Focus on 1 or 2 of the truths you marked to pray about and then obey.
- Record. Capture what you read, reflected upon and responded to in writing, perhaps a journal. I try to this everyday and it’s been helpful in facilitating some sweet moments with the Lord.
