The LORD conforms us to the truth by continually confronting us with the truth (the Bible)! When He does, either we accept it as truth or we ignore it.
When we accept the truth from our heavenly FATHER, we can expect His richest blessings, even when we don’t have any reason to expect any blessings at all!
Denying GOD’S Word is an attitude He will not bless. Think about when you heard the Word of GOD being preached last! Did you walk away with that Word heavy on your mind? Or did you simply walk away with no thought of it whatsoever?
We need to let GOD’S truth work its way into our hearts and lives!
For if anyone is a hearer of the Word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was.
Let’s ask the LORD in prayer today to refocus our thoughts and help us to be an aggressive listener and to allow the Holy Spirit to cause the Word to penetrate our hearts.
