But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. – John 14:26
The Bible is a living book. The Word of God is living, active and powerful. It has to be the foundation for our life. This whole universe is sustained by the Word of God. The world was created by it.
There are basically two ways by which you can understand the Word of God. One is by relying on your human understanding and the other is by relying on the Author Himself—The Holy Spirit.
By default you tend to interpret the Word of God just using your mind, your understanding and your background. Understanding it just by your intellectual ability can be misleading. You cannot limit the unlimited wisdom in the Word to your own understanding.
If you try to understand the Truths in the Word just on the basis of your human mind, there will be times when what you see in the Word does not make logical sense. To your brain any truth it is exposed to, seems logical only if it can find something to rely and leverage on. If it does not find any corresponding truth to leverage on it will reject it as illogical or irrational or impossible.
But if you try to understand the Word of God in your spirit with the help of the Holy Spirit, you have access to another dimension. So when a truth revealed in the Word does not find anything to leverage on in the natural mind, it will find a leverage in the spirit and it will make logical and rational sense.
There is a lot in the Word of God than what our human brain can comprehend. It is filled with mystery, wisdom, world changing truths, solutions to our problems which cannot be grasped by human logic and understanding. When you allow the Holy Spirit to reveal it to your spirit it becomes comprehensible. It’s the Spirit of God which inspired the prophets to reveal and write the Word of God. He is the one who knows the whole truth. Let Him interpret the Word for you and He will reveal the multi-dimensional truth in it.
Fellowship with the Spirit of God, get intimate with Him, let Him guide you in the Word. Don’t read the Word just by your human brain power, which will only make you academically strong. He wants to reveal His fullness to you, because it’s the Word of God which creates Faith in our heart and changes our life.
Be led by His Spirit and let Him interpret the Word of God for you.
Learn from Him and you will never go wrong.
