that it doesn’t make sense.
Paul says to us in Galatians, “I want you to understand that the gospel message I preach is not based on mere human reasoning. I received my message from no human source and no one taught me.”
The Bible has a supernatural message that people without the Holy Spirit living inside of them cannot understand. It doesn’t make sense to them because it’s ‘from no human source.’
So you and I can’t let the fact that other people ‘don’t get it’ distract us or confuse us or make us doubt the wisdom and guidance we receive from God as we read the Bible.
God speaks through his Word.
He talks to me.
He stops me when he wants me to take some extra time thinking about a certain section of his Word – like the verses I mentioned here.
I am so grateful that the Bible is not like any other book on earth. Other books I have read inspire me but I’ve never heard my Father’s voice in my head reading me the words when he wants to draw specific attention to something. Other authors have insight and experience that have helped me and encouraged me but none of them have the wisdom that God has. Some authors have great imaginations and clever plot changes but none of that is the truth coming straight from the Creator of the Universe.
Only the Bible has His voice.
Only the Bible has a direct revelation from Him.
Thank you for your Word, Abba Father.
