How do you get more light?

BIBLE MEDITATION:
For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith; as it is written: “The just shall live by faith.” Romans 1:17

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
One of God’s most prominent character traits is His righteousness. How is His righteousness revealed to us? Romans 1:17 tells us: “…from faith to faith… the just shall live by faith.”

What does that mean? How does it work? Here’s how: As God gives you truth…and you believe that truth…God gives you more truth. Step by step, you grow from faith to faith. The more you walk toward Him, the more light you receive.

The more you obey the light, the more light you get. And forward it goes.

The reason some of us don’t understand the Bible more than we do is because we haven’t been living up to the light God has already given us.

If you want to understand parts of the Bible you don’t understand, begin to obey the part you do understand. Then you’ll understand what you didn’t understand. Understand?

ACTION POINT:
Meditate on 1 Corinthians 2:7—“But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:” Ask God for faith that will reveal to you the hidden truths of His Word that are hard for you to understand right now.
