Fuel to Fire

A new year is just around the corner, and each one of us needs to take stock of where we stand in our walk with the Lord. So many times we desire to start January with a list of goals we want to achieve without considering that growth just doesn't happen. Have you stretched yourself to the point that meeting one of your many goals becomes impossible? Are you so busy that the time for a daily Bible study and devotional time is placed on a back burner? We all need spiritual food to fuel our fire.

Studying Scripture inspires, but before it can do something lasting in your life, you have to dig it out. You have to pray about it. And you must study it from within its context. Everyone needs a structured Bible study. A systemically-structured study supplies the basis for the Holy Spirit to speak to you and for you to understand the message in the Word. If you haven’t learned something new from your study, look again. Expect to be surprised by the Word, and allow the Holy Spirit to teach you. Expectation rewards with spiritual surprise!

Remember that God breathed HIS life into the Word., and it trains us in our spiritual walk (2 Timothy 3:16). It was sent for His purpose in our lives, and it will accomplish what He wishes when we make the effort (Isaiah 55:10-11).

Make the effort. He will not disappoint you.
