Do you have a friend or a person in your life that calls you regularly to talk and talk and talk. You can’t seem to get a word in edgewise. They go from one story to the next, one concern to next. Rarely do they give you a chance to comment, ask a question and don’t even think about giving your opinion or expressing your idea or thoughts. Well, I could imagine God feels the same way when we spend all of our prayer time making request and telling Him about your problems. God’s desires for your prayer time is for it to be a dialouge with Him and not just a one-way conversation.
Did you know that God is always speaking to you? Yes, He is and he does so in two distinct ways. One way God speaks to you is through His word. As you spend time reading your Bible, the Holy Spirit begins to make the word of God come alive. You begin to have more understanding of the passages you read in the word. They start making more sense to you. As you read the word it also begins to answer questions you have had about certain things in your life. Over time your Bible becomes a trusted source of wisdom, instruction, and guidance. As comforting as a good friend, you can find healing, peace and joy all in the pages of God’s written word.
