God Will Guide You As You Read the Bible...

We have also a more sure Word of prophecy; where unto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a Light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the Scripture is of any private interpretation.  For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.  2 Peter, Chapter 1, verses 19-21.

The ability to interpret the Bible’s message doesn’t belong to any one person or group, especially if they feel that they are the only ones who know what God’s Will is.  It’s important for me to remember this because there are religious fads, cults, trends and religious leaders who may suggest beliefs that sound good but are really contrary to God’s Will, as stated in the Bible.  It’s easier to interpret the Bible than many lead you to believe.  Trust the instincts that God gives you and He will guide you as you read the Bible for yourself.

Because this is an example of how I’ve applied this Bible passage to my life, it doesn't necessarily reflect the whole meaning of the passage.

This is a connection I've made from this Bible passage. Please share your connections.
