Know The Word For Yourself

Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth (2 Timothy 2:15).

2Timothy 3:16 says all Scripture is given by inspiration of God, which means in studying the Bible, you must first yield to the guidance of the Holy Spirit. You shouldn’t study the Scriptures the way
you would an academic journal or a textbook. When you study, you have to cross-reference scriptures, and rely on the Holy Spirit to grant you understanding. Part of the ministry of the Spirit in your life is to grant you revelation knowledge of the Word; He
grants you insight into the secrets and mysteries of the Kingdom. He teaches you the Word. Therefore, relying on Him, and affirming that He’s with you to
teach you and unveil the Word to you as you study, is very important . Further more, be sure to have a good study Bible. Not every Bible is a study Bible. A study Bible has cross-references. There, you’d find different terms, words, phrases or sentences that are related in different parts of the scriptures. The Rhapsody of
Realities Devotional Study Bible, for example, has cross references, with inspiring articles that’ll aid your study of  and understanding of the Word. You can order a copy by visiting http://www.rhapsodybible.org   Until and unless you know the Word for yourself,
you’re going to be a victim in life. In Hosea 4:6, God didn’t say, “My people perish because they don’t pray enough, go to church, or are always doing the
wrong thing”; no! Rather, He said, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge ….” He wasn’t talking about knowledge of science or history either; He was referring to the knowledge of the Word. It’s important that you apply the Word in your own life. However, to apply it, first, you must know it. That’s why He wants you to study. You can be a success, live victoriously, walk in divine health, and win every day. Refuse to be ignorant. Give yourself to the Word and your success, progress and prosperity will be inevitable.

Prayer

Dear Father, I thank you for
your Word which illuminates
my path and causes me to walk
in your wisdom. By your Spirit,
the eyes of my understanding
are enlightened, and my mind
is renewed in line with your
Word, for progress, increase,
prosperity, and victory, in Jesus’
Name. Amen.
