Understanding Comes With God’s Help

Today I’d like to share some thoughts on how we understand what the Bible is telling us. We can always look up the words for alternate meanings, that will help us apply the words to the verse. We can cross reference other verses, this helps us with the Biblical context. But within every verse there is a spiritual truth that is revealed by the Spirit of GOD. Scripture is divinely inspired, so it’s reasonable to expect that GOD’S intended meaning must be revealed by seeking GOD and ask for spiritual eyes to “see” what a particular verse holds for us.

Luke 24:45 illustrates this point. The Resurrected Jesus said “Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures.”

The “correct” understanding comes only with GOD’S help. Praying we ask for His help in understanding and applying Scripture. GOD’S PEACE! Mike
