The more we know that God loves us, the more naturally we respond to his love, and want to follow him.
Revelation. We need more revelation from God, to really see and grasp the real meaning of His Word. Without a revelation from heaven, all we have, is a head knowledge.
We are just passengers on this earth, and our life here on earth is a just a stop, towards our destination.
When the Holy Spirit is upon us, and working in us, He will make us more willing to know the ways of God. It is His doing in us, not just our wishful thinking or will power.
When God and his Spirit are working in us, it produces a desire to know God more, and we want to meditate on his Word. The Word of God is like a testy food for our heart and soul. We feed our spirit man, with the Word of God, like we feed our bodies with food.
