My friend Linda posted some time back that when she makes the Bible central to her time with God, “he does speak through it.”
We sometimes think God is silent when he isn’t doing something we want him to do or telling us something we want to hear.
But he is never silent. His word remains. Forever.
When I read my Father’s living, active Word seeking to know God better, it’s like I’m right there at his throne. Right there. With him. How could I not grow and change, be encouraged and strengthened, be made wise and discerning? How could I not begin to do the things that please him?
I don’t believe God speaks to us only through his written Word. But I know he speaks through it when we do.
Motive matters. Maybe you know someone with a head full of Bible and a heart full of hate. One thing the Bible is NOT is a magic charm.
For many years, even as a believer, I rarely read the Bible. Now I can't imagine not reading it often.
Everything good that needs to happen flows from that.
