Certainly this is not something that one can receive in his sleep. It takes much effort. It requires more than reading through the Bible. It requires careful meditation and diligent study of God’s Word!
We will do well to take heed to the Apostle Paul’s counsel that we “give attendance to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine” (1 Timothy 4:13). Consider his words to Timothy, “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15).
My dear brethren, we must be mighty in the Scriptures, which is our infallible manual concerning faith and practice. God has prepared and preserved it for us for our profit (cf. 2 Timothy 3:16-17). Let us seek to be thoroughly furnished by God’s Word.
Commit yourself to a daily devotion of God’s Word. Make full use of the many opportunity available to you for your growth in biblical knowledge. Be mighty in God’s Word!
