Why is the Bible so hard to understand sometimes?

Psalm 139:17How precious are your thoughts about me, O God!

The first step to understanding God is to know that he understands us.

Psalm 119:18Open my eyes to see the wonderful truths in your law . . .

We depend on God himself to open our minds to understand his truth.

1 Kings 3:9-12Give me an understanding mind so that I can . . . know the difference between right and wrong . . .

God honors our prayers for understanding.

Proverbs 2:1-6Cry out for insight and understanding. Search for them . . . Then you will understand what it means to fear the Lord . . .

Understanding and wisdom come when we are relentless in our pursuit of truth and the study of God’s Word.
