While watching tv during my nightly tea session, I started to think about how many images, songs, websites, and even sermons that go in one ear and out the other. The world has become so codependent on entertainment and satiating inner needs with trivial solutions that even those who know the real truth fill themselves with "twinkies" rather than the real "meat and potatoes" that the Lord offers to His children.
I know for myself that consuming is a huge part of my life.
I LOVE to read. I love to learn all that I can about any subject that happens to be of interest to me for that day or week and I will learn all that I can about it, then if something else catches my eye I focus in on that and so the cycle repeats itself. However, in reading the word of God I have come to find it is so much more than learning and hearing the verses, but how long do we allow ourselves to sit and meditate on the power of even ONE verse. To let it steep in our souls, to pray for ultimate revelation, and ultimate freedom in whatever it has for us. I love how the word of God is ALIVE, that it has the ability to separate soul and spirit, that it is ACTIVE
& that it is GOD. It is our manual for living.
I want to read the word and let it steep, I want it to change me. I know that His word does not return void, but I believe it must truly ENTER in order to RETURN.
