Recognizing God's voice

So why do you challenge God to answer you? God speaks in different ways, and we don’t always recognize his voice. ~ Job 33:13-14 (CEV)

They said to each other, “When he talked with us along the road and explained the Scriptures to us, didn’t it warm our hearts?” ~ Luke 24:32 (CEV)

We need to approach life with humility, accepting that we don't always understand what God is saying.
Gracious God, you continue to speak your Word to us through the Bible. But even though I've studied a lot of the Bible there are lot's of times that I don't instantly recognize what you are saying. Give me the humility to accept that I can never be a full expert on your message. And grant me, too, insight so that I can embrace your Word when it seems mysterious. I want to be able to walk with you and burn with passion for your Word -- even though I don't recognize the significance of what you are saying. And that will require humility. Amen.
