GOD, WHERE ARE YOU? - JOHN 1:1
If you want to find God, where do you look? Check his word. God is always where His word is. His will is always what His word says. His basic word is the BIBLE!
Read it anyhow! Systematically, unplanned, privately or publicly; old or new testament, youíll see Him on every page. The Bible reveals Godís will for every area of life and thatís why itís important to search the scriptures! When you meditate regularly on Godís written word, your spirit man gets cultured to hear His voice; you become more sensitive to the dealings of the Holy Spirit, and generally become more aware of your spiritual environment.
In II Chronicles 20, some people sought God, and He gave them solutions. Anytime you need God, go ahead and check His word! You need to oftentimes check your heart for any degree of despise that may be there for Godís word. Maybe you rate His instructions written in the bible lesser than him, NO! God has exalted His word even above His name.
You canít despise His word and then call on His name in prayer, NO! Honour His word and He will respond swiftly to you in prayer. GOD IS IN HIS WORD!
PRAYER: Lord, open my eyes that I may behold wondrous things out of your word in Jesusí name. Amen.
