Have you ever thought about how you can have an appetite for books, movies, television, news, Facebook, Instagram and the likes but no desire for the word of God? Have you ever wondered why you can make time to scroll to hear what others are doing but have no clue what the scroll of God is saying to you? Keeping us busy so we don’t stop and ask questions is a tactic of the enemy. When you are moving so fast you don’t ask questions that will expose his tactics in your life and therefore, you don’t realize it is the enemy that does not want you in the word, it is not you. Your spirit wants to hear the word of God, read the word of God, pray the word of God, for Jesus is the bread of life (John 6).
The voice of the enemy will come and say you don’t have time, but we all have the same amount of hours in a day, yet some people produce while others only consume. Some people create while others criticize. As born again believers, Christ in us is the hope of glory and He is wanting to commune with you in prayer, worship and especially His word. What is His reasoning behind this? Does Jesus want you to have another thing on your to do list? Absolutely not, the goal of Jesus for your life is freedom and He knows, just like the enemy knows, if you know the TRUTH, the TRUTH will set you free (John 8:32) and the enemy hates freedom. Therefore, the thief who comes to steal, kill and destroy (John 10:10) employs whatever tactic he can to keep you from the word of God, which is TRUTH, so you do not become free.
Freedom is an investment, freedom is an inside job, freedom is your choice. If you want to be free, invest in the TRUTH that will set you free, for the return on this investment is beyond anything you could ask or desire. It is for freedom that Christ wants to set you free and keep you free!
