God doesn’t reveal it to rebels

BIBLE MEDITATION:

“I understand more than the ancients, because I keep Your precepts”

(Psalm 119:100)

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:

“More than the ancients” is a way of saying “the accumulative wisdom of the ages.” David is saying, “I haven't been off to the university. I haven't studied abroad, but I keep God's Word, and therefore God reveals to me His truth.”

People sometimes say, “I read the Bible, and it doesn't make sense to me.” Well, the way to understand the Bible is to obey the Bible. And the way to understand the verses you don't understand is to obey the verses you do understand.

The only way you can really understand the Bible is for God to reveal it to you, and God doesn't reveal it to rebels. Some of you know what God wants you to do, but you're not doing it. And you wonder why you've come up against a roadblock when you try to read the Bible.

ACTION POINT:

Determine to keep God's Word, and through it, God will reveal His truth.
