"All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work." II Timothy 3:16-17

How often do we pray for direction? How many times do we just long to hear God's voice? How many times a week do we cry out for wisdom? The good news is that God has created a way to speak to us, give us wisdom and guide us. It is through His written word, the Bible. Paul was telling Timothy how important the Bible was. He shared that the Bible is inspired by God for the purpose of teaching us, convicting us, correcting us and equipping us for His service. There is no other source that God uses to communicate to us more effectively. Through the power and guidance of the Holy Spirit, God is able to speak to us in a personal and intimate way. It is easy to get busy and a day goes by, then two, pretty soon a week, then a month. Before you know it, you are not spending any time getting to know God or His word. We were not meant to live life without the word of God. It is like going through life with a hole in your heart. Instead, let God fill the emptiness. Get a Bible today and put it near your favorite chair. And then each day start spending a few minutes letting God teach you. He will. He longs to fellowship with you and teach you His word, but you have to make the first move. Why not start today?

    I haven't been on my computer for a while. I was just checking email on my IPOD but it's hard to reply to blogs on it.

    I hope you've been doing well.

    Yes, if we "think" that God is telling us something contrary to what the Bible says, we are very mistaken!!!

    Wow... You're very inspirational. I've had so much trouble turning to God - although when something bad happened in my life it was easy to just blame Him. I'm trying to get my relationship back with God but it will take me a while. Your words will help me get there. Thank you for being who you are. emoticon
