Luke 24:32 NKJV - "And they said to one another, 'Did not our heart burn within us while He talked with us on the road, and while He opened the Scriptures to us?'"
Yesterday we noted Jesus came alongside these two disciples and walked with them and spoke with them too. Our verse today speaks of the moment when Jesus revealed who He really was and then disappeared from their vision. They were surprised He was right there with them and they didn't even recognize Him! But, they knew something was different: They felt the power and impact of His words, that which He spoke, and also when He explained the Scriptures to them. Their hearts "burned" within them.
Ever have that experience? When you open God's Word to read, do you anticipate His speaking to your heart? Do you find yourself rejoicing that His Spirit is making things clear to you and helping you understand His Word? Do you sense God leading you and showing you more of what He wants to do in you and through you?
If that is not true in your life is it because you approach the Bible with a careless attitude? Do you "hunger and thirst" after God? Do you really want to hear from Him?! He's ready to speak to you daily. He's ready to have your "heart burn" within as the power of His Word impacts your life. Ask Him to give you that hunger and desire to hear from Him. He really wants to speak to you!
