The Lord continued to appear at Shiloh and there He revealed Himself to Samuel through His Word. 1 Samuel 3:21
- Who is God?
- Why did God create me?
- Does God love me?
- Is God mad at me?
What does God want me to do?
The questions can go on and on. We were created to know God and have a relationship with Him, but that doesn’t just happen by chance. The Holy Spirit woos us and draws us to Himself, bringing us to repentance and salvation, but that’s not the end of the story. You want more and so does the Lord.
Salvation is just the first step, now begins the journey of learning who your Creator is. He knows you and understands you better than you know yourself, now it’s time for you to learn about Him. The way we do that is through His Word. He reveals Himself through the Bible, which is amazing and exciting and yet there’s more. As we read God’s Word, learning about Him, His character and His likes and dislikes; God speaks to us personally.
It’s incredible! It’s like a two way conversation. I will have something on my heart, some thing I’m concerned about for the day and as I read, a verse will jump out at me. And it will be exactly what I need, it’s the Lord speaking to us through His inspired Word.
The Word is always faithful to the consistent message of the Bible, so it will not speak to you contrary to the revealed Word through Jesus Christ.
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable -if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things. Philippians 4:8
God wants to encourage us, teach us and reveal Himself to us through His Word. So open your Bible and read what the Lord wants to personally say to you.
Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for revealing yourself to us through your Word. We wait in anticipation of what you will say to us today. We love you Lord. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
