HEAR & SEE
Do you remember the first times that you started to understand God’s love for you? You started “hearing” and “seeing” spiritually. The Holy Spirit was guiding you.
In the same way, when you read the Word of God, ask the Holy Spirit to open the eyes of your heart. The Holy Spirit will guide you, teach you and strengthen you as you read the scriptures.
Remember, the Word of God is God’s words to you in writing. They are great and powerful promises.
ROMANS 10:17, NIV
17 “Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ.”
EPHESIANS 1:17-19, NIV17 I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better.
18 I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints,
19 and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength,
12 For the word of God is living, and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing even to the dividing of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and quick to discern the thoughts and intents of the heart.

You can actually see and hear the words of Jesus. The film was shot in Israel and is word for word the Bible from the book of Luke. The film takes about 90 min to watch but is well worth the time.
Ask God to give you eyes to see and ears to hear during the film that you would understand deeper His love for you.
“Lord Jesus, give me eyes to see and ears to hear your work in the world and in the Bible. Give me an amazing awareness of your Spirit at work. Open my heart to the things you want me to experience. I love you.”
