Finding Understanding in the Word

English Audio Version

Where do you find advice?

From over the backyard fence? At the tollbooth? From the dental hygienist when she’s cleaning your teeth?

Or do you look in a book, search out the answer in black and white?

The Internet of Things is the modern way. We google any question we have, and within moments, the answer is there.

There are some answers even the Internet of Things cannot provide.

  • Will our date be fun tonight?
  • Do we need that extended warranty?
  • Is the milk still good even though it’s past the sell date?
  • Who is our perfect mate?
  • Is our spiritual foundation firmly secured, or are we standing on a slippery slope?

Psalm 119:99 tells us how to gain spiritual understanding.

“I have more understanding than all my teachers, for your testimonies are my meditation.”

Benjamin Franklin once said, “Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.”

Aristotle told us, “It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson shared his wisdom in these words: “Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.”

The Book of Psalms tells us we can have more understanding than all our teachers. How do we gain that understanding? We study and think on the stories we read in the Holy Bible.

Let’s open the Word. As Tony Robbins, modern teacher, says, “The only impossible journey is the one you never begin.”

Your wisdom is rated by where you find it. Search the Bible. You will become wise beyond measure.

You can move forward in God when you step into his Word.
