How to Understand the Bible

“I understand more than the ancients, because I keep Thy precepts.” Psalm 119:100

People sometimes can’t understand why they don’t understand the Bible. Well, the way to understand the Bible is to obey the Bible. And the way to understand the verses you don’t understand is to obey the verses you do understand.

“More than the ancients” is a way of saying the accumulative wisdom of the ages. David is saying, “ I haven’t been off to the university perhaps, or I haven’t studied abroad, but I keep God’s Word and therefore God reveals to me His truth.”

The only way you can really understand the Bible is for God to reveal it to you, and God doesn’t reveal it to rebels.

Keep God’s Word, and through it God will reveal His truth. Some of you know what God wants you to do, but you’re not doing it. And you wonder why you’ve come up against a roadblock when you try to read the Bible. 

As the old saying goes; “ignorance is no excuse of the law” so is pleading ignorance of the word, Romans says that the law is inscribed on our hearts, and the knowledge of God written there as well.
