When I read, I let the words really speak to me. I do this by personalizing the pronouns. For example, if I read a passage that contains "you" or "we", either in my mind or by writing above it, I change the words to "I" or "my." I use this power reading technique with many types of reading material such as devotionals, articles about health, finances, relationships, or anything I find that may help me personally. For instance, this is how I would read the following devotional passage.
(Original version) In Psalm 23:2, the psalmist says that God leads His people into green pastures and beside still and restful waters. In other words, God will always lead us to a place of peace and safety if we seek Him. (Hearing From God Each Morning, 364 Daily Devotions by Joyce Meyer)
