By grace we are saved through faith. It is a gift of God. All can read God’s Word. Not all who read God’s Word will believe it to the extent that they take action based on His Word. To hang yourself on the Word of God is to faith(verb). By faithing in God’s Word, we stand to gain the favor of God in the same way that Abram came into favor with God through faith.
You won’t hear or read God saying something that is not true. (1Sam 15:29) With that in mind think on the following:
Mat 7:7-11 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?
I believe that what God said above is His Word and therefore Truth. It is my continuing prayer that God open our eyes and our ears so that we might receive understanding of His Word and His Spirit in our hearts.
All that is left now is that we begin reading the Word with the desire to understand it and the confidence that God is true to His Word. Would God make Himself a liar? God forbid.
