It's all well and good to listen to others preach and teach. We need teachers who are strong Believers, who know the Word well and love Jesus.
But, listening to teachers is no substitute for your own time in the Word. You need to read the Word daily. Seriously -- every day.
It doesn't have to be much -- just one verse can be your goal.
I've never found it hard to read the Word daily, but I think that is because I enjoy reading and studying and writing. These pleasures of mine fit into a daily quiet time.
Maybe you're not like that. God made us all different with different strengths and gifts. Find out what works for you. Do you absorb things better when you hear it? Then get a Bible on CD. Is music your thing? Then, take in the Word in song. There are plenty of verses that are put to music already.
You gotta figure out what works for you. If you don't know, ask God. He made you. He knows how to draw you close to Him, how to impart His word to you in the most effective way.
If you aren't getting the Word in you regularly in a time just with you and God, you won't be able to grow as well as you could as a Believer. The Word is food for your soul. The Word is nourishment. God will speak to you in many ways, but as you read the Word you know for sure the words are God's words. Somedays a verse will just hit you in the heart. It will be exactly what you need to hear that day.
Reading the Word consistently will also teach you God's principles for life. Nothing God will lead you to do will contradict His principles, His Word. Nothing. By reading the Word daily it will help you know when you are hearing God's voice. If you have a hard time knowing if what you are hearing is God, read Proverbs 8: http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=proverbs%208&version=NASB
This proverb describes God's voice. God's voice never condemns, is not harsh; His voice will not make you feel worthless; His voice will lead you to do things that will draw you closer to Him and people. He will never abuse you. He will expose sin in your life, but He will do it in such a way that you will know you are priceless but the sin needs to go. He will never lead you to use people, abuse people. He will never lead you to violence, to manipulate others.
Another good passage to read is Philippians 4:8-9. It speaks about what to think about:
8 Finally, brethren, N)'>(N)whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is e]'>[e]lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, f]'>[f]dwell on these things. 9 The things you have learned and received and heard and seen O)'>(O)in me, practice these things, and P)'>(P)the God of peace will be with you.
When God has your mind, He has you. The same is true for the enemy and the flesh. If they have your mind they have you.
Have a glorious weekend. Think about having a cup of nettle tea -- full of vitamin C and K and all sorts of other good stuff. It tastes okay -- like green tea (and it is green in color). A bit of honey will make it delightful!
