When people GIVE us advice, we react much differently than if we had ASKED for their advice. Advice that is GIVEN, is usually unwanted and based on opinionated, faulty historical and scientific logic to PERSUADE US to a certain way of thinking and reacting. When we ASK for advice, it becomes PERSONAL, a RELATIONSHIP full of TRUST; and we LISTEN from the depths of our SPIRIT. Do we read the Bible for historical and scientific logic, Genesis to Revelation, and get nothing. Maybe we are not reading from NEED. Do we expect to hear GOD'S VOICE in the Scriptures? Does this ADVICE penetrate our Soul? Do we respond and listen to GOD (Prayer)? Then, do we rest in the total silence of HIS LOVING PRESENCE? "That we should seek GOD...and find HIM", Acts 17:27. Do we treat reading the Bible like going to the dentist? We put it off and put it off, UNTIL THE PAIN IS UNBEARABLE? THEN WE LISTEN.
