I apologize for being a day late with the tip. I had some computer issues yesterday morning, but I think I have everything straightened out now. Truth be told, I was so aggravated yesterday, I wouldn’t have had any advice to pass on that was worthwhile. However, the way God redeems things, even that has turned out to have some wisdom in it.
When I study, I don’t always come away with new insight or information. Occasionally, I get a reminder of something I already knew. Some days, I just enjoy the time spent in God’s word. If I go for more than a couple of days without “getting” anything from my study time though, that’s a sure sign of deeper issue between me and God.
Yesterday, my studying was hampered by my own irritation and distraction. Today was better. If your study time is empty, take that as a hint that God has something else He wants to deal with in your life, and ask Him about it.
