Pearls of Wisdom - Knowing God's Word!
Chosen by God!
“Open my eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of Your law.” (Psalm 119:18 AMPC)
The best guideline to studying and interpreting God’s Word accurately is to ask the Holy Spirit to be our teacher as we read. Consulting God about His Word will illuminate Scripture for us. We must make Scripture reading a daily part of our lives. The more time we spend in His Presence and in His Word the more His Word will take root in our hearts.
Psalm 119 is filled with Scripture around how we should handle the Word, the importance of the Word, and the power in the Word. It’s a wonderful chapter that just makes me love God’s Word more and more as it reminds me to be diligent in spending time in His Word.
It’s important that when we read the Word we don’t allow our bias or belief system to impact God’s intent. It’s also important to put it in context by understanding the times it was written in and what was going on.
Finally, we must pair our knowledge and understanding of the Word with seeking God’s direction before making decisions. God never meant for us to be independent of Him in any area. He created us to be totally dependent on Him.
This is my prayer:
Lord open my eyes so I can see You in the Word. Open my ears so I can hear You in the Word. Open my heart so I can receive You in the Word.
“You're my place of quiet retreat; I wait for your Word to renew me." (Psalm 119:114 MSG)
