If you’ve lost your desire to sit down with God’s Word, what do you do?
Do you just pray for the Lord to give you that desire?
Do you find a good devotional to read in the meantime?
Do you force yourself to listen to a few sermons?
How do you get back that thirst for the Scriptures?
Dig in deep and keep digging until the desire comes back to read the Scriptures!
Here is a great example taken from Winnie-the-Pooh himself.
In Psalm 119:103 the psalmist exclaims, “How sweet are Your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth.” Though we may not put it in such eloquent words, that is the testimony of every true Christian.
Nevertheless, even true Christians, those who recognize the importance, excellence, beauty, and authority of the Scriptures, sometimes lose their appetite for the study of God’s Word.
