Bible Study: How Do We Begin to Understand God’s Plan?

Here’s a good reminder from “THE CHRISTIAN’S GUIDE TO THE NEW LIFE” from THE OPEN BIBLE:

“Although we cannot grasp how individual events fit into God’s program (Ecclesiastes 11:5), we can understand God’s basic plan in order to come to know and serve Him. Few joys can compare with realizing our place in God’s program and working to fulfill our destinies.”

The study then reminds us

How God’s Word Came to Us: Revelation, Deuteronomy 29:29; Inspiration, Isaiah 59:21; and Illumination, Proverbs 6:23

What God’s Word Does: Convicts, Nehemiah 8:9; Corrects, Psalm 17:4; Cleanses, Psalm 119:9; Confirms, John 8:31; and Equips, Proverbs 22:21

How We Benefit from God’s Word: We Know God, Daniel 11:32; and Know God’s Will, Psalm 40:8

This gives us a good foundational understanding of the next topic: What God’s Word Tells Us About God’s Program.

We will begin to study this in more detail by looking at God’s Work in the Past. To get ready for that study, look up Deuteronomy 32:7.
