Draw Nigh to God and He Will Draw Nigh to You- James 4:8

“When we begin to believe and comprehend the Word written to us in the New Testament Scriptures, God begins to reveal spiritual wisdom to us personally. Then, the eyes of our own understanding will begin to be enlightened (Ephesians 1:18), as we become spiritually lit up from the inside, out. One major reason that people say that they cannot understand the Epistles is simply because they approach the Word in the same way that they would perhaps study a history book or a good novel, totally missing out on the reality that it is God Who enlightens our lives with spiritual revelations of knowledge, understanding, and wisdom. Today we literally learn the spiritual truths within the Scriptures proportionally to our believing in God. We cannot fool or trick Him into giving us spiritual understanding without our hearts being genuinely drawn towards Him.” ~LMJ~
