What is Rhema? It's God speaking to us through His living Word. Scholars believe it to be a special revelation to the individual. I'm learning to read with listening ears. What is God saying to you? His Logos, or His Word contains the answers to our questions but do we always search there first? Make it your goal today to meditate on His Words of Life for you. Have you heard Him speak lately? Ever? Begin with prayer and ask Him to give you the gift of His response. Read a Psalm and something from the New Testament, then be still and know that He is God (Psalm 46:10). Use the words of Samuel, "Speak, Lord, for your servant is listening (1Samuel 3:10) and wait. Journal what comes to you. Sometimes it's the need to confess something, which is often a blockage to us hearing God. Make it a habit to really study the Word of God. Look up words and phrases that are difficult to understand. Memorize portions of Scripture that are particularly meaningful to you at this time. Ask the Lord to give you a special chapter, verse, or word. Try to live by these Words of Life daily, and when you fail, which is inevitable for us all, allow Him to pick you up, dust you off and begin again.
Join me this summer in memorizing Psalm 103.
