Preserve my life according to Your Word.
Psalm 119:37 NIV
The Bible is like a cave full of treasure; amd you’ll never reach its end. The book of Psalms says ?To all perfection I see a limit; but Your commands are boundless? (Ps 119:96 NIV). Solomon said, ?If you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, then you will understand the fear [deep respect, and submission] of the Lord and find the knowledge of God? (Pr 2:4-5 NIV). When it comes to God?s Word, you’ll be amazed by how much is in a few small words. This is why you can study the same Scripture over and over again, leave it for a month and when you come back to it there is much more to find. The key is this: stick with it! Remember, there is no limit to the number of questions you can ask, no limit to the observations you can make, no limit to the applications you can make. So don?t give up! The best attitude to have in Bible study is the one Jacob had when he wrestled with the angel of the Lord. He tightened his grip and said, ?I will not let you go unless you bless me? (Ge 32:26 NIV). And the result? His life was changed. And yours will be too! Bible study has no shortcuts! It?s hard work. But if you are diligent and patient you will reap great rewards. Once you have felt the joy and satisfaction that comes from finding a great Spiritual truth on your own, then applying it to your life, you will never approach your Bible the same way again!
