No Bible degree needed
Proverbs 2:3-5 – Indeed, if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding, and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God.
Proverbs 2:10 – For wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul.
“I’m dyslexic so I can’t read the Bible.”
“I don’t like reading so I get bored when I read the Bible.”
“I’m just not clever enough to understand it…”
I love how these two verses in Proverbs (the book of Wisdom) makes it clear as day that you don’t need a degree, an A* in English literature or any prior intelligence to gain wisdom from the Bible. All you need is a deep yearning to want to understand the Bible. Once you have that will, and once you’ve put action into your will, wisdom is all yours my friend.
In fact, it has nothing to do with your mind – as verse 10 tells us that wisdom enters the heart and not the mind.
To be totally frank, there aren’t any excuses to not reading the Word on a regular basis. The only excuse that’s valid is that you don’t want to. Because if you really, truly did, you would find a way. And in finding a way, wisdom would enter your heart and take a hold of your soul. That sweet taste of understanding God and His Word would leave you wanting more and more.
Proverbs 20:15 compares wisdom as a rare jewel – so much more precious than money or fame.
Start today – find truth, understanding and knowledge for yourself. Open the Bible with a new, fresh attitude and watch how God speaks louder than ever before.
