"How sweet are thy words unto my taste! ... Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way" Psalm 119:103-104
Point five: Let us seek to know Him in the Word. It is in the Word we will find the Holy Spirit ... for the Holy Spirit wrote this Book. He inspired it, and He will be revealed in its pages.
What is the word when we come to the Bible? It is meditate. We are to come to the Bible and meditate. Let's open our Bible, spread it out on the chair, and mediate on it. It will open itself to us, and the Spirit of God will come and brood over it.
So be a Bible mediator. I challenge you: Try it for a month and see how it works. Put away questions and answers and the filling in o blank lines. Take a Bible, open it, get on your knees and say, "Father, here I am. Begin to teach me."
He will begin to teach you, and He will teach yo about Himself and about Jesus and about God and about the Word and about life and death and heaven and hell, and about His own Presence.
After getting the heart filled with the Holy Spirit, it is well to get the head filled with the very facts and truth that should be there. The Bible speaks of grace and knowledge. They go well together.
