John 16:13 (KJV); Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
Our Helper, the Spirit of God, also helps us with our study of the Word of God.
Why do some people struggle reading the Bible? Why do they find it boring? Why do they claim not to understand what they are reading?
The primary reason why anyone struggles with studying the Word is that they do not read it with the aid of the Holy Spirit.
If you let Him, the Spirit will teach you. He will take you on a journey of truth through the scriptures, connecting Malachi to John, John to Revelation and Revelation to Genesis. He will trace for you patterns in Exodus, show you the same patterns in Isaiah and underline for you the same patterns in Hebrews.
When I open the Bible to read it, I always tell the Holy Spirit, “My friend and master, come and teach me. Show me what you want me to learn today.”
As you do this and grow in this habit, you will be amazed by the things that He will reveal to you.
The scriptures are Spirit-breathed. The Spirit is intimately acquainted with every verse, line and precept. He knows which truths lie beneath which truths. Do not read the Word alone, your helper is ready and available to study the Word with you.

GOLDEN NUGGET: The scriptures are Spirit-breathed. The Spirit is intimately acquainted with every verse, line and precept. He knows which truths lie beneath which truths. Do not read the Word alone, your helper is ready and available to study the Word with you.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this truth. I thank You for the gift of Your Word and of Your great instructions that give me life. I understand the scriptures because I do not study them alone. I have a helper and His voice leads me in the paths of truth and revelation. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
