Psalms 119:96 (KJV), I have seen an end of all perfection: but thy commandment is exceeding broad.
You are a steward of the mysteries of God (1 Corinthians 4:1). As a steward, there is a knowledge you ought to have to appreciate the demands of stewardship.
One of these things is “spiritual inclinations” in the realms of knowledge.
The Bible simplifies these as “depths, heights, breadths or lengths.”
These movements have patterns and an order. For example, depths precede heights: how deep you are in the Word and in God determines how high you go in the things of the Spirit.
Even though depths precede heights, depth is not the beginning point of these inclinations; the beginning is breadth.
For this reason, Paul speaks of comprehending with all saints “what is the BREADTH, and length and depth and height; and to know the love of Christ which passeth knowledge that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God.”(Ephesians 3:18).
He starts from the breadth because that is the beginning point.
Why is breadth the beginning?
The Psalmist, as revealed in our theme scripture, walked this place in the spirit, reached the end of all perfection and found the answer: the Word is firstly broad before it is deep, high or long.
The breadth of Word simply means there is nothing in and outside eternity that is not touched or influenced by the Word.
For “all things were made by Him; and without Him was not anything made that was made.” (John 1:3). By Him, “all things consist.”(Colossians 1:17).
As a steward of this breadth of Word, you hold the answer to all spheres of life; the solutions to the challenges of this world have been placed in your hands. Hallelujah!

PRAYER: Father, I thank you for this revelation of your Word. As a faithful steward of the secrets of eternity, I understand not just heights and depths but the breadth of the Word. This Word is all the world needs; it framed the worlds; shaped the courses of oceans and seas and created all things. Because I have this Word, I am an answer to the nations. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
