    You may be aware that "big tech" has been aggressively censoring conservatives on Twitter, Facebook, Google, Instagram, YouTube and other social media platforms. This is tyrannical and suppressive towards Christians and conservatives.

True Understanding Comes From Your Bible

‘Through Your precepts I get understanding.’ Psalm 119:104 ESV

True understanding comes from God—it’s a gift only He can give. That’s why Solomon asked God for understanding instead of relying on his own. And God will bestow understanding on you through His Word. ‘For the Lord gives wisdom: from His mouth come knowledge and understanding.’ (Proverbs 2:6 ESV) David said, ‘Through Your precepts I get understanding.’

The Bible was written that we might have understanding and be able to interpret life the way God does. Paul, who wrote much of the New Testament, told Timothy, ‘Consider what I say, for the Lord will give you understanding in everything.’ (2 Timothy 2:7 NASB) As you immerse yourself in Scripture, God speaks to you. In essence He says, ‘This is how I see it, and this is how I want you to see it.’ In other words, He gives you His insight into the situation.

In the Bible you will discover how to become truly successful. You will find the answer to your financial troubles, how to cure worry, and how to solve relationship problems. It will direct you in your family relationships—the chain of authority in the home, including the position of the husband, the wife, and the children. It contains the cure for nervousness and depression. It’s even a purging tool for removing sin from your mind and life. ‘How can a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed according to Your word.’ (Psalm 119:9 NKJV)

In short, your Bible is the greatest success manual in the world! The psalmist said, ‘The teaching of Your word gives light, so even the simple can understand.’ (Psalm 119:130 NLT) So if you want true understanding, meditate on the Scriptures today.

I love that the Bible is something that God is able to give us understanding through. I love also praying before going into the word, just so that God's spirit can be there as well.
