2 Timothy 3:16 (AMPC): “Every Scripture is God-breathed (given by His inspiration) and profitable for instruction...”
Have you ever felt your earnest, heartfelt prayers are just not reaching God? You’re longing for intimacy with Him but it feels like you’re walking all alone. The question to ask yourself is, how much quality time have you been spending in the Word lately? The Bible is God’s voice to us. When we approach it with an attitude that is eager and excited to hear what it has to personally say to us, its wisdom comes alive in us. In fact, 2 Timothy 3:16-17 says scripture is used to teach us in all truth, it highlights any wrongs in our lives, and shows us what is right. And if we embrace it, as if God Himself was lovingly showing us His ways, then His Holy Spirit will enable us to grasp the truth we read - and empower us to do what it says. God uses His Word to comfort and encourage us, and prepare and equip us for every good work. It even teaches us how to pray. Spending time in God’s Word is spending time with Him. He wants you to take it personally, and will reveal the secrets of His heart to you each time you do. So spend time in His Word; open your heart to it and experience how it will shift your prayer time from being a monologue to a very fulfilling dialogue.
