Most people don’t read God’s word because they don’t understand it.
The more you read God’s word, the more wisdom you gain, and the more understanding you will have. God wants us to know His word, to know Him, therefore, ask for wisdom and understanding before you begin to read.
Psalm 119:33-34 (KJV) – teach me, O Lord, the way of thy statutes; and I shall keep it unto the end. Give me understanding, and I shall keep thy law; yes, I shall observe it with my whole heart.
Proverbs 4:7 (KJV) – wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
