The Lord continued to appear at Shiloh, and there he revealed himself to Samuel through his word. 1 Samuel 3:21
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 Him, 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 more about your creator, His character, His works, and what He expects from His children. The Lord already knows you and understands you better than you know yourself (Psalm 139:1-6), now it’s time for you to learn about Him. And the way we do that is through His Word. He reveals Himself to us through the Bible. Which is amazing and exciting and yet there’s more.
As we read God’s Word, God speaks to us personally. It’s incredible! It’s like a two-way conversation. I will have something on my heart, something I’m concerned about for the day and as I read, a verse will pop out at me. The Lord speaks to us through His inspired Word, giving us encouragement and guidance for each day.
The Word is always faithful to the consistent message of the Bible, so it will not speak to you of something that is contrary to the Gospel message.
God wants to encourage us, teach us and reveal Himself to us through His Word. Open your Bible and read what the Lord wants to personally say to you today.
Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father, give us a passionate desire to want to know you more. A desire to spend time in your Word and learn more of your character and grace. Thank you for saving us. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
