Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

This verse makes me understand that when reading God’s words in the Bible, we shouldn’t only understand them according to the literal meaning. Instead, we should seriously ponder them to understand God’s will.

Then how to read God’s words to understand the truth?

God says, “Results must be achieved from eating and drinking the word of God. You must be able to quiet your heart in front of Him, and to practice in accordance with His words when you encounter issues. When you have not encountered any issues, just eat and drink.” “God’s word is very profound and cannot be penetrated with man’s way of thinking. People can discover the complete meaning of every aspect of truth as long as they make an effort, and the remaining details are filled in completely as the Holy Spirit enlightens your understanding of the concrete situations through experience. One part is understanding God’s word through His word, finding the specific content of His word. Another part is understanding the implications of God’s word through experiencing it and obtaining enlightenment from the Holy Spirit. It is primarily through these two ways that a true understanding of God’s word is achieved. If you interpret through the letter of the word or the imaginations of your own way of thinking, then your understanding is not true even if you can interpret it with the utmost eloquence. If you don’t do it right, you will even take meaning out of context and misunderstand God’s word, and that’s even more troublesome. So, truth is obtained principally through receiving enlightenment from the Holy Spirit as you come to know God’s word.

It can be seen that: If we want to understand the true meaning of God’s words, we need to quiet our hearts in front of Him and pray-read His words with our hearts. When having something we don’t understand, we need to pray to God and seek His enlightenment and illumination. We also need to ponder with our hearts that why God says these words, what problems are revealed in God’s words, and what the manifestations of each problem are. Reflecting on ourselves according to the problems revealed by God, we can not only know our shortcomings and deficiencies but also know what God has and is. Furthermore, we also need to bring God’s words into real life and practice them. Only by experiencing God’s words can we understand their inner meaning and act in accordance with God’s will. May God guide us. Amen!
