trying to understand truth

As we dig into God’s word we may not grasp or understand the meaning of every concept we come across, but we cannot let this discourage us. We should focus on taking what God has revealed to us in the word at that given time and trusting that He will continue to reveal His word to us as He sees fit and in the right time. God knows just what He wants us to focus on and what He wants to teach us in our different seasons in life. In times of uncertainty or confusion, we should look to, and rely on the wisdom of our all-knowing, all-powerful and almighty God. We cannot rely on our own understanding or worldly wisdom because the word of God is perfect and eternal truth. If we are to understand this truth we must look to the one eternal being. That is why God tells us not to rely on our own understanding but instead, trust Him and focus on renewing our mind with the truth in His word. Then the Holy Spirit will guide and teach us continually in all that we do, and we will receive wisdom, understanding, and the right mindset/perspective in accordance with God’s truth. “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will.” Romans 12:2
