But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. Matthew 7:26
Reading God’s Word is hearing the voice of Jesus speaking to you. The Holy Spirit will help to interpret the wisdom in each verse of scripture.
God’s word does not go void either. If you share God’s word with someone, that person will have a reaction, maybe not at the exact moment but at some point in time.
God speaks to us through the Bible and we speak to God through prayer.
Each day, after you’ve prayed, make sure to listen to God speaking to you. Ask him what it is that he’s trying to teach you or perhaps prepare you for.
