Hi Peace Family! It’s Jami and I wanted to share a thought with you. I recently heard a sermon about hearing from God. Sometimes when things get hard or chaos comes into your life you need a word from God to hold onto. Many times I have felt that God was quiet when I needed so much to hear from Him. The pastor said, “If you feel like you aren’t hearing from God like you need to, let me ask you this: Are you in the Word reading your Bible? He says so much to His children through the Word on every subject and situation you can imagine. If you aren’t hearing from God, then get in the Word.”
Boy, That hit me like a ton of bricks. It seems so logical and simple and yet we forget what a treasure we have at our fingertips. It convicted me and that day picked up my Bible and read for a long time. It lifted my spirit and I felt direction from God like I hadn’t in a while. If you are looking for answers or direction, there is no better place than the Bible. The ironic thing is I have worn out 3 Bibles and am on my 4th now. I have them in a bookcase and they are all marked up and ragged looking. Yet I needed a reminder from that pastor to pick up my Bible TODAY and open the Word. We all need reminders from time to time no matter how long you have walked with the Lord.
So I want to encourage you today. If you need to hear from God and it’s important and you need direction, pick up your Bible. Open it and take it in. His Word will not return void. It will reach you right where you are. We love you Peace Family!
