Notes:

Three points about the Scriptures: 1) God’s Word is His will; 2) it contains everything needed for life and godliness; 3) only the humble understand it.

God’s Word is God’s will:

2 Peter 1:20 and 21
The Scriptures communicate God’s Word and will.

Galatians 1:11 and 12
Man wrote it, but God authored it. Who the man was is not important.

Numbers 22:22-38
Speak only the word that God told me

23:7-12, 18-24; 24:10-13
Even though Balaam was a spiritist, he spoke exactly what God wanted spoken.

Contains everything needed for life and godliness:

Psalm 19:7-11
God’s Word is perfect.

2 Peter 1:2 and 3
Everything pertaining to life and godliness is found in the Scriptures.

The humble understand:

Psalms 119:12, 26, 33, 66; 27:11; 86:11
Without asking Yahweh to teach you, it is impossible to understand His statutes. God’s position or laws are made known by Yahweh to those who ask for Him to teach them. His statutes are written in His Word.

Psalm 119:27, 34, 73, 125, 144, 169; Proverbs 2:6
Many have tried to read and understand but have failed because they did not ask God for understanding. Colossians 1:9-12

Psalm 119:35 and 36
“Incline” means to be drawn toward an opinion or course of conduct. Far greater than intellectual understanding is experiencing the truth in daily living. Again, this happens as we ask for help.

37 and 40
God can revive us if we turn away from vanity, and we can turn away if we ask for help (119:25, 40, 107, 149, 154, and 156). We all need to be revived, and His Word is the way to do so but not without His help.

The great key to reverence for Yahweh
