Ephesians 1:17 (NKJV)
that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him
I’ve been loving my new Bible. If you didn’t know, recently I made the transition from solely using electronic Bibles to mostly using an actual old school book. I believe I was inspired by God to do this and it has proven to be quite
Now, before I go to much further, I am in no way saying that iDevice Bibles or the equivalent are bad. I am not saying it is wrong to use one. They are wonderful tools, but for me, they are just different. Incredibly handy for reference, electronic Bibles eliminate the need to carry a library with you everywhere. This is great for the back!
I know, “where is this going,” right? As I read in my Bible I have found great joy in underlining, highlighting, and writing all over these pages what the Lord is revealing to me. I especially love, when I go back through it, these scribblings are like tracks of where I’ve been. Now, I haven’t had this new Bible very long (maybe a few months) but, every time I open it I am reminded of what God has been showing me and how much I have been getting in just a short time. See, we tend to forget when it’s not in front of us. As with anything we all have our own methods of study and learning. For whatever reason there are certain revelations that come to me that I deem “top of the page” worthy. These are tidbits that just seem right to accentuate a bit more. I write them at the top of the page, a little bigger, and usually with a star. All of this may seem strange to you but it’s refreshing to me.
The point I am making is two-fold. One, you need to take time to fellowship with the Lord through His written Word. Two, if you pay attention, He will lead you to methods of study that suit you and enable you to hear from Him more. Trusting God, even in what seems the simplest of things, blesses Him immensely and He will reward you by meeting you more. Remember Matthew 5:6?
This came to me at church the other night: “God sent His Son to be visible… yes, He wants us to know and see Him!” Hallelujah! God is just waiting for us to allow Him in. It’s a process but the Word tells us, draw close to Him and He will draw close to us (James 4:8). The first step is with us.
Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.
