"People who are more obedient to the general word of God are more prepared to recognize and be obedient to the specific words from God." -Paul Maconochie
God has already spoken in powerful ways. His word is potent and prolific. It is sharper than any double edged sword. Yet I know my temptation is to whine and bemoan that I have not heard a new and deeper word from God. Why should God speak a new and deeper word to me when I have not been obedient to the words already spoken?
