Obedience to His word gives Understanding

God reveals His truth to us—His sheep—through the word by His Spirit that He has given us (1 Corinthians 2:10-12). There are deeper things of God that we won’t be able to figure it out on our own (Acts 8:30-31), and God will be delighted to reveal them to us in His time (Ecclesiastes 3:1; Luke 8:9-10) through whatever means He sees fit, and that can include commentaries and other studies. In the meantime, let God prepare your heart, and let Him sanctify you through His word (John 17:17). The hardest and most difficult part of the Bible is not the part that we don’t understand, but the ones that we do. The texts that we do understand are always a challenge, for it bids us to lay down our pride and to walk in humility before God and men (Acts 24:16). The commands we find throughout the Scriptures are there not to exalt self but to crucify it.
