Matthew 4:4

But he answered, “It is written,

“‘Man shall not live by bread alone,

but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”

“God’s Love Letter

Over recent years I had turned from regarding the Bible as a boring history book, and started seeing it as an intimate love letter from God to me. The more I got into it, the more it got into me. I found that it was active and alive. It pierced me with its truths, and it had the power to actually change my life. . . .

When I just don’t want to read God’s Word, I pray for Him to give me that craving. I pray that He’ll make me want to seek Him, because when we seek God, we can be sure of finding Him. . . .

I’ve found that the more I dig into the Bible as His love letter to me, the more I develop a passion for it, and for Him. When my heart is cold and unwilling, I ask Him to change it, and incredibly, He does. As my days unfold, I make sure to schedule uninterrupted time to read God’s Word and pray. It’s a discipline to do so . . . but when I do it, it fulfills my deepest desires.
