Recently, my husband was working on putting together a bookshelf we had purchased. There seemed to be an unusual amount of parts to construct the shelves. I left him to work alone while I was busy with chores around the house. As I walked back through the house, I found him sitting on the couch, remote in hand and a scowl on his face. I stopped and looked at him and ask him if he had finished assembling the shelves already. “They’re impossible!” he retorted. “Did you try the instructions?” I asked. He laughed, not wanting to admit that he had not even unfolded the instructions. We sat down together, opened the instructions, took our time going through each step and in the end had a nice bookshelf standing before us. Instructions are enclosed in anything we try to assemble. It is our choice whether we take the time to utilize them in our project. God has given us an instruction manual for living a life that is committed to Him. He didn’t leave us here to struggle aimlessly, we must choose to commit His Word to heart and apply it to our daily lives. How are you living a life committed to His command to love Him with all your heart, with all your might and with all your soul?
Ask God to give you an unquenchable thirst for His Word.
