The Matters of the Heart

Something I read this morning. Let’s lengthy but keep reading.
Remember when you first got into the Word and were so excited about the things of God? Remember when you could hardly wait to read the next chapter in the Bible or listen to the latest teaching tape? (Remember when it was a joy to rise early in the morning and have that special time with God?… spcj) There was only one word to describe you, HOT! Your reborn spirit was on fire for God…hungry to find out everything he had promised..in his word. My total interest was the Word of God.
But slowly that changed. At first I didn’t even realize it was happening. Then the Holy Spirit went to work on me and showed me that I had grown lukewarm. I had let the fire die down. I still read the Word, but I had lost my enthusiasm. 
(How do I get my love back? How do I get my fire back?…spcj) 
God’s word says to draw near to him and he will draw near to you. In order to do that you will have to first drop the things that are stealing your time from reading the word. Delight yourself in his word. Become diligent again. If you will give your attention to the things of God soon your desire for God will increase. Your desire will follow your attention. The more you attend to something, the more your desire is drawn to give attention to that thing. Your soul’s desire will follow whatever you spend your time doing. Start building yourself up by praying in the Spirit. (Reading the Word of Again again…spcj). Believe and act on everything God says to you. Before long that flicker that’s been wavering in your spirit will grow again into an all-consuming FIRE! Rekindle the Fire! In Jesus name.
