Beware seeking to hear God primarily through devotions, sermons, classes, music or someone’s extra-biblical writings, including mine. Don’t look to be spoon fed.
If you were convinced there were precious things buried in your yard that were worth a fortune, you would not wait for someone else to get it for you. You wouldn’t rest until you got the treasure yourself.
Approach the Word of God that way. Do the work yourself. Dig! Labor, toil, make every effort to get it. You won’t really get anything through preaching, devotions or otherwise, unless you want it like that.
You won’t get anything from someone else that the Spirit won’t give you when you approach the Word open and diligently seek Him.
Rend your heart.
Pray for eyes to see and ears to hear.
Read your Bible.
“He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” – Hebrews 11:6
