Do you pray that the Lord would unlock the mysteries of His word to you when you read scripture? To lead you on a journey that leads to treasure in the Living word of God? I fear that if we don't we are sure to miss it. As pastor Paige said on Sunday we may read/hear and not understand. We may think we understand, perhaps we do on an intellectual level, but completely miss the hidden glories in the Word that transforms us into new creatures, people who have been lead to the pearl of great price (the riches found in God's Word) by the mercy of the Holy Spirit's revealing the Truth of the gospel to us, revealing Christ to us.
Piper nails it! What are we thinking if we aren't praying over the Word? We are "forfeiting" wondrous, glorious, Holy things if we don't pray. I don't know about you, but I want to be given understanding to see the absolute wonder in Scripture. Father, show us Christ! Reveal to us your glory! Lead us to unending treasure in your Holy word, for your name, and your glory, amen.
Eager to worship with you family,
