Psalm 119.99

The way to revelation

"I have more insight than all my teachers, for Your testimonies are my meditation" [Psalm 119.99 NASB]

All of us have benefited some more than others, from the example, influence and theological understanding of our teachers over the years. And probably in our hearts we have yearned and aspired to follow and imitate their example just as Timothy followed and endeavoured to imitate closely everything Paul did.

Eventually David realized and discerned that the true source of all knowledge comes from God's word, not man alone.

David loved God's word and he pondered it at every available opportunity. One of the priceless benefits of meditation is that you do not need a pleasant and comfortable environment in which to indulge in it.

Many of God's people have been in the most austere circumstances; but through meditation, reflection and obedience, have transformed themselves into temples of the living God. For example, John Bunyan, Samuel Rutherford and Richard Wurmbrand all had prison experiences, and yet they all turned out to be men of valuable insight, understanding and priceless, godly wisdom.

Are your surroundings conducive to study and research? If not, remember God's word is not bound and His knowledge is not limited to the classroom!

Are your opportunities for ministry and service restricted? If so, then it is worth remembering, that your understanding of God can grow and develop where you are planted.

Therefore, give yourself to God's word as Paul did in Arabia, and when God opens the door for service, you will have more depth of insight than your contemporaries and many people may be willing to listen to what God has graciously and unfailingly imparted to you. [David McArdle]
