The unfolding of your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple.
— Psalm 119:130
By the time I was 22, I had only read 1 book all the way through; and it was because I had to in order not to fail English my senior year. I could never comprehend anything I read, especially if I tried to read the bible. When I surrendered all to God, I wanted to get to know who He was, and I knew that the place to find Him was in His word. I would read the word every night, and pray for understanding so that I could know my God. When I did this, it was as if blinders were removed from my eyes. The unfolding of His word gave me light! He gave understanding to the simple!
Open God’s word every day, and pray for understanding. Cultivate a healthy relationship with God consisting of 2-way communication. Expect that God will reveal His mysteries to you.
Heavenly Father, I thank you for giving light at the unfolding of your word, and understanding to the simple. I ask that you reveal yourself to me through your word, and help me understand your attributes, your grace, your love, and your power more clearly. In Jesus’ Name I pray, AMEN!
