3 … Wherefore, I said unto you, feast upon the words of Christ; for behold, the words of Christ will tell you all things what ye should do.
5 For behold, again I say unto you that if ye will enter in by the way, and receive the Holy Ghost, it will show unto you all things what ye should do.
I take this promise at its word. When we study the words of Christ, we will know ALL things what we shall do. The circumstances don’t matter. If we are in the scriptures and studying the words of living prophets, we will have all the answers.
I believe this is true not so much because there is a solution for EVERY single problem spelled out in the scriptures. It’s more about learning the language of the Spirit. I believe that as we are deeply in the scriptures, the Lord speaks directly to us through the Spirit and gives us the answers we need.
And then the power of verse 4.
4 Wherefore, now after I have spoken these words, if ye cannot understand them it will be because ye ask not, neither do ye knock; wherefore, ye are not brought into the light, but must perish in the dark.Asking the direct questions when we are in the scriptures yields the direct answers. He will bring us into light (enlightenment) about our struggles and problems when we take them to Him through our diligent study.
There truly is power in the word of God. Feasting on Christ’s word can and will yield answers to the questions we ask and give us strength to act accordingly.
