In studying the Word of God, it is good to ask what the author is saying under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit to God's people at the time as well as to me now. Probing the depths is good. It is also good to walk with God in every itty bitty circumstance of our lives as He reveals His truth in every area since He is ever living to make intercession for me.
"For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart." (Hebrews 4:12) That means we don't have to be a Bible scholar since His Word is living and active. Neither does it mean we can ignore it because He also can judge the thoughts and intentions of our heart. Since we can't walk around holding Jesus' hand or sit at His feet by our couch and actually listen to Him speak, God thought it best to leave us with His Holy Spirit and His Word to fill us and "lead us into all truth."
I see God's fingerprint in everything I see and do. Because He is living, I don't have to leave Him at home in my study or closet. If I don't know the answer, which happens often, I must go to Him in prayer and search the Scriptures and wait upon the Lord. Some things will remain a mystery as we learn to trust in Him completely, no matter what. On this blog I share a "petit mote," little bites of His Word I relish as I walk with Him every day.
Instead of Rapunzel letting down her long hair, think of the wisdom of the ages letting down his long beard so that we may climb down out of the ivory tower and walk in His kingdom ready to face any dragons seeing God's hand in everything in the beautiful whole wide world. Sundays are like a gathering of all your fb friends joined together to worship and to learn more from His Word. How can we neglect so great a salvation?
