Introduction

Along my journey with Christ, I often struggled to discern his voice. That, in turn, made me doubt if I was saved. Because didn’t Jesus say, his sheep know his voice? 
At a time I asked Jesus, “Lord, why can’t I clearly distinguish Your voice, from others?”
He answered, “I have given you the whole recording of My voice, but you have not yet listened to it all. Read your Bible.” 
After that conversation, I understood that I can only get to know God’s voice, his personality, and character, by eating his written Word. And so I did.

Faithfully, the Lord shone his light onto the pages of the Bible and brought to life the words. Through the Holy Spirit, He released bursts of understanding in my heart, and it is those insights, I share with you, here.

It has been my experience that the Word is indeed alive. Thus the insights I gain, over time mature. The vague outlines I see at first, evolve into beautiful images, sometimes quite different from what the outlines hinted at. With that in mind, I share my insights with you, expecting that what I understand now, will continue to grow, within my own heart, and also in yours.

May God use these teachings to encourage you to dive deeper into your Bible, may He release revelation, insight, and understanding in your heart, and lead you to maturity in faith.
