What He wants You to Know!

As also our beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom given to him, has written to you, as also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which untaught and unstable people twist to their own destruction, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures. 2 Peter 3:15-16

Do you find parts of the scripture hard to understand?
Everyone does, including me. I’m free to admit I don’t know all to know about God’s word. I can be right and I can be wrong.

When reading scripture it should always be complimented by other scripture. My interpretation should never contradict other scripture or the holy nature of God.
I know parts of the Bible leave you scratching your head. Peter said about the same thing about the writings of Paul “in which some things hard to understand”.

One of the first things you need to do before reading scripture is pray! Ask God for understanding on what you read.
Meditate on the word.
I once read that reading the Bible without mediating on the word is like eating without chewing.
Prayer and meditation (thinking) on what you read.
Ask your pastor, who may not know but you can get him to read and meditate also.
Present it to your Sunday school or group class. Get all of them to read and meditate.
God will speak through someone to tell you what He wants you to know.
