“Give me understanding, and I shall keep Thy law; yea, I shall observe it with my whole heart.” Psalm 119:34
As a pastor, I am delighted when people ask questions about the Bible. However, there are some folks who are more irritating than they are delightful. I get tired of people complaining about not being able to understand the Bible when they are not really studying the Bible, nor obeying it. They act as though it is God’s fault for not making it clear enough. I like the following comments made by the late Adrian Rogers:
The reason some of us don’t understand the Bible any more than we do is because we have not been living up to the light that God has already given us.
If you want to understand the part of the Bible that you don’t understand, then begin to obey the part that you do understand. Then you’ll begin to understand what you didn’t understand. Understand?
Ask God for faith that will reveal to you the hidden truths of His Word that are hard for you to understand right now.
