If you want to know who God is - read His book.
I've been blessed this past couple of weeks with a hunger for the Gods word. I'm eager to see what Christ will say, or what His apostles might instruct next. Words I've read my entire life are coming alive to me in brand news ways that actually excite me.
In the past, I've simply "read" because it's what you're supposed to do and often I actually enjoyed it. ;) But never have I felt an eagerness such as this before.
In reading just this week I have truly appreciated how things that I know and believe are being solidified as I see connections in verse after verse and book after book. Moving from Ecclesiastes, to Luke, to Ephesians and Colossians, back to Psalms (I'm reading 52 over and over and over again).
I know it doesn't seem as exciting as what I might make it sound like - but I assure you if you keep trying, keep reading and pray for help and understanding you'll find something amazing.
For me, right now, I just cannot thank God enough for the desire for His word and the hunger to know Him better, and then putting it all together and giving me a better understanding.
Read your Bible. Read it. Read it. Read it.
Just read it.
