Most people they dismiss the written word of God because they lack understanding they have not the ears to hear or the eyes to see so they miss many things written and concealed within the word. People will harp on that you can’t add or take away from the word and that is truth however they fail to take into account the things already written in the word that are hidden and concealed within the word to be revealed to those with a mind to search and find them at a time that is right for it to be revealed.
Many think and believe the written word of God is just like any book that you read and like any other book all you would do is take everything at face value but then they fail to see that the word of God calls for us to study to go deeper to show thyself approved.
Many think on the limitation of their own brain instead of focus on the God who has no limitation the limitless God who is the creator of heaven and earth and all things within, they fail to realise the largeness of God and that a simple book is too small to contain Him therefore His book the written word must be more than a mere book and it must contain more than the eye can see in fact most believers forget that before they were saved as an unbeliever when they read the Bible to them it was just a mere book a good story in fact that was why we were unbeliever because we just did not and could not see yet when we got saved the written word took on life and suddenly we begin to see some of the hidden mysteries and treasures contained within.
Many believers fail to realise that when we do not continually read, study and meditate on the written word then we will miss those hidden things that are concealed within the word that are hidden for our own benefit to be revealed at a time suitable that will bring the most benefit to us.
Many believers fall short because they do not realise that the limitless God would not withhold any good thing from His children but will withhold it from the enemy concealing it for a time when His children need to know it and to use it if only we believers would realise this we would read and study and search His word daily with a hunger and thirst if only we knew that the God of glory keep within His written word things concealed for the honour of His children those things that are only for us and only to be revealed to us all His prophet, His kings, His true children then we would indeed continually study word upon word, line upon line, precept upon precept diligently searching for the hidden treasures that was the glory of God to hide and concealed within His written word only for the eyes and ears of His children, treasures hidden and concealed within as to be to the honour of those who diligently seek to find it.
(People our map is the Bible the written word of God which is why satan tries to corrupt it but this morning I feel the Lord saying He is greater and larger than the enemy and therefore His word is a map unto us and we must not be shaken at satan’s attempt because there are things untold written and concealed only for those who are His so read study meditate and come to a deeper level where there are treasures concealed only for those who are honoured to diligently seek it out. It is there not hidden from you but hidden for you, so ignore those who want to ridicule the Bible those that do not have the eyes to see the ears to hear those who are sent to be a snare unto you and pick up the word daily to read it, study it and meditate upon it).
Recommended Scripture reading:
2 Timothy 2:15 KJV
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
Psalms 84:11b KJV
no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.
Proverbs 25:2 KJV
It is the glory of God to conceal a thing:
but the honour of kings is to search out a matter.
Amos 3:7 KJV
Surely the Lord God will do nothing,
but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.
Hebrew 4:12 ASV
For the word of God is living, and active, and sharper than any two- edged sword, and piercing even to the dividing of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and quick to discern the thoughts and intents of the heart
Mark 4:22-23 KJV
For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither was any thing kept secret, but that it should come abroad. If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.
I Corinthians 2:9-16 KJV
But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit:for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit that is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God:for they are foolishness unto him:neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.
