Hey well I feel like I'm starting to read the bible like it's a textbook and I don't really have the Spirit illuminate the scriptures much like it used to be. So I have a few questions. I feel like I'm learning a lot about God instead of knowing him personally and it's been destroying my passion steadily since conversion. So How do we come to say a chapter or passage of text and find the food for our spirits in it, instead of just some intellectual knowledge? I mean I can read a chapter of scripture, grasp all the information but that doesn't pass for knowing God in a personal relationship better and see where it fits into a particular doctrine but that's often it. How do you guys do this? What attitude to do come to the scriptures with, how do you come to know God personally through a chapter/passage instead of knowing dead facts about him? and do you have any kind of processes whilst reading? Do you ask each chapter 5 questions or something?
