The words "I am thy servant" should ring loud and clear in every believer's mind and heart. We should know that God has made us, and we do not belong to ourselves. Believers should know and understand that we are all servants of our God, who has saved us by his marvelous grace.
Only God can give us understanding of his word. We cannot delineate God's words to us without the power of God through the Holy Spirit; that is his job.
James 1:5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. Oh, that we would simply ask the Lord for wisdom! Oh, that we would take his advice to help us understand God's word so we can be vessels of honor for his service.
We are to know the testimonies of the Lord in order that we might spread the news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, his death, burial, and resurrection; so that we might know God, who he is, and what his plan is for our lives. So many times we know Jesus, and we know the Holy Spirit, but many do not know God in his essence. May God give us understanding to know God as he really is and not as we would like him to be.
