How often do we cry out to God in the crisis? How often do we ignore Him until our world turns upside down? How often do we wait until the bad things come before we come to Him?
He wants a relationship with us. He wants us to get to know Him as He reveals Himself to us. He wants us to walk with Him, talk with Him, spend time with Him.
To do that, we must read His Word. It is the Book that reveals His heart and plans to us. We need to spend time in this Book of instruction every day. And then we choose to live it out in our lives.
“If anyone turns a deaf ear to my instruction, even their prayers are detestable. Whoever leads the upright along an evil path will fall into their own trap, but the blameless will receive a good inheritance. The rich are wise in their own eyes; one who is poor and discerning sees how deluded they are. When the righteous triumph, there is great elation; but when the wicked rise to power, people go into hiding. Whoever conceals their sins does not prosper, but the one who confesses and renounces them finds mercy. Blessed is the one who always trembles before God, but whoever hardens their heart falls into trouble.” Proverbs 28:9-14
His Word points out what is right, what is wrong, and how to make the right choices.
We are to read it, hear it, live it out.
Please help me, Jesus, to put it into my schedule every day to spend time in Your Word.
