Charles Stanley (October-06-2019) Daily Devotion: Our Divine Teacher.

Many people—including Christians—don’t read the Bible, and one reason is that they don’t understand it. We might expect this to be the case for someone who doesn’t know Christ, but why do so many of God’s own children fail to comprehend the truth of Scripture? Maybe it’s because they haven’t asked for help from their divine Teacher. One of the Holy Spirit’s chief responsibilities is to enable believers to understand the things of God.

When we look at fellow Christians who know more than we do, it’s easy to think, I will never be able to reach that level. The issue, however, isn’t how much knowledge we have right now, but whether we are growing in our understanding. The Spirit will teach each of us what we need to know, not necessarily what others know. Because He wants to us to become Christlike, He’ll give us truth and the wisdom to understand how it applies specifically in our own life.

The Spirit’s goal is not to fill our mind with information but to bring us to a deeper level in our relationship with the heavenly Father. He wants us to understand the truth so we can know the love of Jesus. The depth of Christ’s love motivates us to know Him better, spend time in His presence, and read His Word.

But all these treasures of God’s Word could remain out of reach if you never ask the Teacher for guidance. Each time you read your Bible, ask the Lord for understanding and wisdom. A genuine and intimate relationship with Christ awaits whoever listens and allows the Spirit to reveal the thoughts of God.
