You know when we buy something to enjoy like a bicycle, computer games and the like, or even hobby toys, there will always be available an “Instruction Manual” to show us the “How To”. Without it, the things will become of no benefit to us.
Similarly, the Bible is “God’s Instruction Manual” showing us guidelines how to live a good, happy and successful life. Let’s read a scripture in Psalms 119:73 to see why we need God and and His Word.
“Thy hands have made me and fashioned me: give me understanding, that I may learn thy commandments”
Do you see it? Isn’t is amazing that the Word of “God given to us is His “Instruction Manual” to show us how we should live, to have the “Abundant Life” as promised in John 10:10:
“…I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly”.
God has created and fashioned you into a beautiful person but just existing as a person is not enough. God wants you to know and walk in His ways. So He gave you the Holy Spirit to teach you how you can live an enjoyable and successful life. Yes to have life and have it “more” abundantly.
That’s why the Psalmist asked: Lord you have made me, now give me understanding that I may learn your commandments (Word of God).
The Holy Spirit illuminated my spirit while I was reading the Bible this morning. I hope this will bless you abundantly.
Have a Blessed Day!
