You must crave pure spiritual milk

Like newborn babies, you must crave pure spiritual milk so that you will grow into a full experience of salvation. Cry out for this nourishment, now that you have had a taste of the Lord’s kindness.

1 Peter 2:2-3 NLT

God’s word is the food of our spiritual lives.  We must crave the pure milk of the word.  It is so important that we come to know the depths of God’s word as it will guard our hearts and minds from the lies of the enemy.  The only way to recognize a lie is by knowing the truth.

But there are many who would claim the bible is difficult to understand.  This is why it is important we spend time in prayer before we open God’s word.  It is important we engage the Lord in fellowship and share our heart with Him asking Him to guide us into a deeper understanding of His word and His heart.  Studying God’s word from a purely academic perspective is incredibly boring and takes the very life out of God’s word.

God never gave us His word so that it would seem difficult or distant.  He has given us His word so that we will come to know Him.  Within His word His heart is revealed.  For it says in His word that the word was made flesh and made His dwelling among us.  Within Jesus we find the fullness of the Godhead.  We must draw near to the Lord each day and ask Him to lead and guide as we read His word.  If we lack wisdom in any area we simply need to ask Him.  Prayer is vital if we are to know the heart of the Living God.  He loves us so very much and simply desires that we come to know the depths of His word.
