As important as it is to study your Bible (II Timothy 2:15), it is even more important to have God open your eyes to understand what you are studying and what it means for your own life. Today’s devotional addresses this vital subject. God bless you.

Psalm 119:18 (ESV)

“The prayer of a certain scholar was very wise one, and I commend it to you. In a great dispute in which he was engaged, he was observed to be frequently writing, so someone said to him, ‘May I look at your notes?’ ‘Certainly,’ he replied. When the notes were examined, it was found that they simply consisted of the words, ‘More light, Lord, more light!’ I think that is a request which we may present for many of our brethren, and certainly for ourselves, ‘More light, Lord, more light!’” [Charles Haddon Spurgeon, The Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit XLVII, (London: Passmore and Alabaster, 1901), p. 358]
