Today the Lord inspired me from the book of 1 Peter 2:2, which says “As newborn babies, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby.” this verse is so crucial and important for our lives as believers. This verse is key to us if we are truly desiring to know God more. We need to strive and hunger for His Word more and more.
In this verse apostile Paul compares how our desire should be, in the form of a simile. He says that as a baby has the need for milk, we should as Christians and lovers of God, desire to know the Word, want it, read it more.
The Bible is the word of God and the Word is God as John 1:1 tells us “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” We shouldn’t be reading to fill up a quota for our daily intake, but to read from a true desire to hear God speak His word into out lives and to truly want to change through reading and listening these wonderful words!
Let’s pray that we may continue to grow spiritually and continue to DESIRE reading the Scriptures more and more. Not for our expansion of knowledge (although that will come along with reading it) but for a true desire to KNOW God and His will for our lives, and for a true desire to CHANGE and not remain the same as yesterday. If we aren’t growing as Christians, then it should brings us to question our faith and what we are doing incorrectly! God Bless you all! May we continue to hear and listen to the voice of God together!
As a reminder if there is ever a need for prayer requests, let me know and i will post them up for people to see! If you need someone to talk to my ears and heart is open for anyone! Again God Bless and have and AWESOME DAY!!!!
