When you read the Bible, you are not just reading words in a book. You are actually feeding your spirit with nutritious spiritual food. When you read the Bible, you are connecting your soul to the very source of life itself. That's why it's so vital to invest the time for some Bible reading every single day of your life. You would never "forget" to eat any food for weeks at a time. But if you somehow did, you would be weak, unhealthy and unable to cope with the normal challenges of every day life. Yet this is exactly what many Christians do when it comes to eating the spiritual food of the Word of God. Many routinely go for weeks or even months without ever opening their Bibles. Then they wonder why the storms of life knock them about so severely. Your best source of life is God's Word. It's freely available to you. Prioritize your Bible reading. It will pay massive dividends in your life over time.
It is the spirit who gives life. The flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and are life. — John 6:63 (WEB)
