Not a good idea.
Assuming Hebrews 4:12 – 13 is true, and that John 16:13 is as well, the Word should be new to us each time we come to a passage, no matter how well we know the passage.
Today I was in Daniel 3. It is a story I can tell without reference to the text. I found myself doing just what I said, skimming, fast forwarding through the text. I realized what was going on and stopped. I asked God to slow me down to do a Psalm 119:18 on me… He did. I saw a couple of things that I had not ever seen or thought of before.
We are always in a hurry. We have things to do, places to be, and people to see. Epically important things, places, and people. Hurrying through our time in the Word does not serve us well.
