Dr. R.C. Sproul has said that we would not hesitate to read a letter from God if it were to drop from heaven today. He goes on to say that we have already been given a letter — the Scriptures — but we too often live as if this book is not from heaven, as our negligent study of it demonstrates. Take some time today to read through a portion of the Bible. Ask the Spirit to illumine its meaning and to show you how to apply it to your life.
We are tempted to look for God’s will in places other than the one place He has revealed it—His Word. As we ponder the will of God for our lives, we must be careful to follow the guidance of Scripture. It is sufficient to give us the principles we need to know to please God wherever we are and whatever we are called to do.
