Understanding God's Word

The Bible is a marvelous book: while its language is so simple that even a child can read it, its message is so profound that even a scholar may not understand it. We must not count on our own knowledge, but must humbly confess our ignorance and ask for guidance, for God "hast hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to babes" (Matthew -26).

Because the Bible is a work of divine inspiration, and "no prophecy of scripture is a matter of one's own interpretation," we need God's help to understand the meaning of God's word. "No one comprehends the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God" (1 Corinthians ). God's spirit, also called the Holy Spirit, is the spirit of truth and revelation who can guide us into all truths (John ). So praying for the gift of the Holy Spirit and His guidance is important in understanding what we read.
