It is important for the believer in Jesus Christ to know that faith must be applied to your Bible reading. You cannot simply read the Bible without the addition of faith for its power to be unveiled. You must read your Bible with you inside it. You must place yourself within the pages and live out its content.
Have you been asking the Lord to heal you from sickness? Did you know God sends evil spirits and sickness to disobedient children? Read the entire book of Malachi. Notice how God pleads with his chosen people. Are you so evil to think you can use God? You keep asking him to do this and do that and what are you doing? You say, pray for Colorado, Japan, Syria, America, my boy or girl with cancer, but have you considered your sin?
Have you taken a good look in the mirror and asked the question am I calling on a God I know and love? What absurdity to think you can use a great King. You cannot use God. You may manipulate your wife or husband, peers or boss at the job, a friend or take advantage of someone who’s attracted to you, but you will not use God. He sees through your facade.
Stop using people and stop trying to use God.
God is offering his hand and power to those who love him. He created you to love him. To respect him. To fear him as a master and obey him as a father. This relationship that God is offering is the same relationship you seek. Who does not want to be loved? Who enjoys and revels in being hated?
Love God and read the Bible in faith.
