The sheer size of the Bible can be overwhelming when you approach it to study it. Where do you start? How can you possibly know all of the information inside? How can you begin to understand what men and women of God have pondered and debated for centuries?
And the answer could be discouraging:
You, in your own strength and with the power of your own brain, cannot understand this book. It is too much for you.
Before you click away and go off discouraged from studying the Bible altogether, let me assure you:
there is still hope for you.
There is a way you CAN understand the Scripture. But it is outside of you. Understanding comes only from one source – God! The most exciting part of the study of God’s Word is that He (the author of the book) comes alongside you and becomes your teacher!
Today I have some simple things to say about God, the Teacher of the Word. I hope you will find encouragement to continue the habit of studying the Word of God.
