Psalm 119:66

Like Clouds Without Water
Ronnie W. Wolfe

Even though we believe that God's book, the Bible, is true; and, even though we trust it fully and faithfully, we still indeed have a need to be taught by the Holy Spirit. His job is to lead us into all truth.

Many trust the Bible, but they do not read and study it. Believing in it is not sufficient. We must all get into the word, read it, study it, and ask God to lead us into the truth of it, for without that leadership of the Holy Spirit we cannot grow in grace and knowledge.

This will teach us good judgment. In other words, we shall be able to make day-to-day, important judgments and make proper choices in life if we are led by the word of God (his commandments).

All knowledge should be guided by the word of God, since his commandments are true and righteous and are given to us to guide us through the science falsely so called in the world. This knowledge of God will allow us to decide where to go, what to say, how to act, and how to give praise to God.

So, spend time in the Bible. Get to know it well. Learn it as much as you can. People spend so much time learning worldly things, yet they do not spend enough time learning God's word. World knowledge without the guidance of the Holy Scriptures is like clouds without water--a promise not kept. The world will let us down, but God will give us good success.
