Sometimes the daily reading is just that… a daily reading. No huge flashes of inspiration. No deep revelation. No voice of God echoing through the room saying, “look at this new thing I am teaching you.”
Sometimes, or dare I say it, many times, it’s just a daily reading of the Scriptures.
When You Don’t Know What To Do
When my eyes were open to the power of the Holy Spirt almost 25 years ago I found myself in a whirlwind of emotions. I’d been in ministry for a number of years, but I found myself experiencing the Holy Spirit like never before. Of course I was excited and ready to tear up the world with this new found insight and revelation from God. But, as is often the case, in the midst of the excitement, comes God’s refinement.
I suddenly found myself in a place where I questioned if I’d ever heard God’s voice in the first place. It was here that someone encouraged me with the phrase…
“When you don’t know what to do, do what you know to do.”
In other words, it’s precisely at this point in time, that we fall back on good discipline and routine. If we don’t know what to do, simply do what we know to do, with our faith firmly anchored and built on the “solid foundation of Christ”.
When reading is just reading, many are tempted to throw in the towel and stop reading the Scriptures on a daily basis. But, instead of throwing in the towel, I encourage you to keep the habit of reading the Scriptures. Keep doing what you know to do, and I promise, the flashes of revelation and hearing the still small voice of the Lord will be your reward.
