Fourthly, you are not allowing God to talk to you.

You are reading just for reading sake.

You are reading just because someone tells you to.

You are reading to avoid feeling guilty or condemned for not reading ritually as a Christian.

Your first journey with Him is to allow God’s Rhema words to speak,

in you and through you, personally.

Let your soul meditate on the Word.

Let your spirit eat the words that jump out from the screen or pages of your Bible.

Now, acknowledge the Holy Spirit and invite Him to teach and remind you.

You are NOT journeying alone. Your helper who is also your teacher will show you the way.

Do not try to look up things that you do not know first from commentaries.

They are other people’s journeys.

What is God telling you? Yes, you!

He has a message just for you.
