People who teach us about God and his word are a wonderful asset; however, they are not a necessity. We do not have to have them to be able to learn about God or His ways. What we require is time, quiet, a chance to rest in His word and allow the Spirit to speak to us. We have a tendency to become dependent on others to feed us and the effect is that we often forget or never learn how to seek or hear God for ourselves. We may miss out on many things he has to say just to us. Don’t drown out the voice of God with the noise of the world and do not neglect spending quiet time with just you, your bible and your Lord.
