When your heart is right and receptive to God you want the Word to take over you. You come to a place in your life where something drastic happens or you realize that you’ve hit rock bottom and you are nothing without Him. For the longest time I didn’t get into the Word because every time I would begin to read it, I wouldn’t understand it. But it’s because my heart wasn’t where it was supposed to be. I didn’t care to look for answers and I thought I didn’t need anything else but the world. But something drastic happened in my life and there was nothing else but the Word to depend on. The Word is everything you need. I woke up one morning and prayed, “Lord break my heart; break my heart for what breaks yours.
Let me be more in love with you than my job, than my family, than my friends.” I wanted my heart to be broken for everything that God had and wanted for me. I needed answers and I opened up the word to Isaiah 58:11 “I will show you where to go. I’ll give you a full life in the emptiest of places; firm muscles, strong bones. You’ll be like a well-watered garden, a gurgling spring that never runs dry.” He gives you a life where you see no direction in your own. I began to let the word take over me in every empty place. I would read and be receptive and everything started making sense. Whether it was peace, comfort, love, guidance, or faith, the word began to show me the love and grace of God and He’s all I ever need in my life! Once your heart is right and receptive to God, you will want to constantly eat the Word and fill yourself and never become empty again.© Copyright 2012 admin, All rights Reserved.
