Let my cry come before You, O Lord; give me understanding according to Your word. (Psalm 119:169)
Whenever the “why’s” of life seem to be more than we can bear, let us cry (pray) to the Lord and seek understanding in His Word, the Bible. I am convinced that all that we need to understand is revealed in God’s Word. It may not be there explicitly, but it will always be there implicitly. That is, there may not be a word for word answer, but there will always be guidance, comfort and hope. We may not always find the answer we desire, but the answer we get will be the one we need. The only times that understanding is not found is when we do not want to understand. There is nothing more powerful than God’s Word accompanied by prayer. The Word of God is the power of God.(1) Prayer is communing with God. Therefore, when we combine the power of God and fellowship with God, understanding will be inevitable.
