One of the great secrets of obedience is to have a proper attitude toward the Word of God. We must be receptive enough to accept the Word, and then committed enough to do what God tells us to do in that Word.

Today there is a tremendous amount of attention put upon our study of the Bible in order to uncover deep truths and revelation. This is certainly good.

There are many, however, who are deceived by this desire to obtain new truths. In their search for knowledge, they neglect the practical influence of the Bible to make them loving, giving, fruit-producing believers.

The reason they show little evidence of the great truths they are always seeking is because they do not receive the Word of God as instruction from the Holy Spirit to be followed. To them it is simply a new idea to be discussed and put on display to impress those around them.

All newly discovered truth must become a part of your life. God is building Himself into your life through His Word, precept upon precept; line upon line (Isa. 28:13). One truth must take root in order for the next to be established.

It is through sensitive listening to the Holy Spirit that the Word of God truly comes alive. Then the power of God to fulfill His Word becomes energized within you.

Allow your study of the Bible to be a thing of faith. Take it to heart and it will become the simple revelation of what God is doing for you, in you and through you.

Each time you open your Bible, expect to hear your Father speaking to you personally. Receive what He says by faith and receive the ability to yield to it, love it and continue in it.
