Growing my spiritual life: Wrestle, listen and understand - Mark 4:23-25
Mark 4:23 All who have ears to hear, let them listen. 24 So consider carefully the things you’re hearing. If you put it to use, you’ll be given more to wrestle with—much more. 25 Those who have listened will receive more, but those who don’t hear will forget even the little they've failed to understand.
Walking with God is exhilarating. The verses of Mark 4 jumped out at me a day ago. I quickly took notes to remember what I read. The more I desire to know the heart of God, the more I receive.
The key to any relationship is to nurture, understand and love the other person. Same goes for God. Get to know Him.
Ask for more knowledge.
Discern God’s presence in your everyday life. See through spiritual eyes.
Seek. Ask questions. Ask for more.
Understand God. Understanding takes time. Not that you or I will ever fully understand God. But we can catch glimpses of his precious heart.
Spend quality time talking to God.
Give God preeminence in your life.
Read the Bible. I approach Bible reading with great anticipation because I know that it will give me deeper understanding.
Deeper understanding brings the desire for more.
Want more of God.
