So right about now you are reading this more than likely because the title has caught your attention… and that is ok 🙂 We are to study, pray, seek God and do for others whether that is giving, praying, supporting, etc. You can only go as far as the knowledge you have though…
Imagine being at a new job in a manufacturing company. You can only do as much work as the knowledge your boss has trained you in. Working for the Lord is no different. Your prayers will sound the same unless you learn His knowledge and read. Your spiritual gifts will remain dormant or flatlined if you don’t invest time into understanding them 100%. Your giving will struggle if you don’t have the fullest meaning of God’s abundant love.
You can’t hear the Lord if you don’t know what He sounds like!
You have to make it a point to set aside time to get fat on his word, otherwise you will look like an anorexic christian! lol (I can poke fun because I have been both at one point and time so be nice 🙂
So how do you start doing this? Get an app on your phone, or set your home page for the internet to a daily bible verse. Everyday read the verse and ask yourself how you can apply it to your life or someone else’s life. It’s a great way to begin this journey. Also, set aside 15 minutes in the morning to pray/worship. This is the best way to begin your day anyways. At first it is going to seem like a task, that you are doing it out of requirement; but, if you hold on long enough and keep pushing, it will become part of “what you do” and you will begin to enjoy time with God each morning. You will feel naked without it.
Your goal? Get to a point where you feel like you have left something when your Bible is not with you everywhere you go. Get to a point where you crave for your time with God – to hear Him. Start getting fat and when you receive a conformation at a service at church you can then share your food with someone else! It’s pretty awesome if I say so myself 🙂
