This Bible Study will focus on just one of The Scriptures in The Bible. I will be focusing on just Psalm 119:18. No other Scriptures will be used here. Have you heard of the many different world wonders? I am sure you may have heard about some of them sometime in your life. Places such as Stonehenge, The Hanging Gardens, The Coliseum, The Great Wall of China, The Taj Mahal, Petra, The Temple Wall, The Great Pyramid, and the list goes on with many more.
What do these world wonders have in common? Each were built by humans who all have hearts inclined to do evil as we all are that way. We are inclined to do evil in our hearts because we are corrupt beings enslaved to sin in our lives. Therefore using logic everything we do and make follows a pattern of being corrupt. Did you know that every wonder of the world is falling apart and must be maintained by people? That is something that I know you find interesting.
Did you also know that every wonder of the world has been destroyed completely at one point or another in history only to be rebuilt either completely or partially? I know many of you didn’t know that until reading this here. None of these world wonders are really a wonder worth mentioning though. Why do I say that? I say that because I know of The Only World Wonder. You have heard of this as well. We as True Christians call this The Bible and The Law of God among many other names. Let us look at Psalm 119:18 to see what I mean here below:
The Scriptures and The Teaching
Psalm 119:18 NKJV
-18- Open my eyes, that I may see wondrous things from Your Law.
You see here is what appears to be a simple prayer. Is it really simple? Yes and no. It is simple because you can actually pray this Scripture like you can any of them into your life. The Bible is meant to be read out loud and since prayer is talking to God and Him talking to you, then it makes logical sense for you to be able to pray the things in The Bible out loud and into your life. I am not talking about doing long public prayers to get noticed with a “Look at me! Look at what I am doing!” attitude.
This Scripture is not simple as well. This is because this one simple-seeming Scripture is so powerful that the only Scriptures that are more powerful are the ones about repenting of your sins and the ones about believing that what you ask for you will receive. This ties into the second ones along with requiring the first ones to be true in your lives. This is a personal prayer that you can be saying each time before you get into The Bible and I will show how this is done.
First, you ask God to open your eyes. This is asking God to reveal spiritual things to you using your spiritual eyes. This is something that only The Holy Spirit is able to do, but only after you ask God to do so first. You can be blind spiritually and be lost in your sins like the Pharisees and other religious leaders of then along with those who are the same today. You can also be physically blind as well. However, in both cases you can be given spiritual eyes to see with when you ask God to do so for you.
Second, you state the reason for your request when you asked God to open your eyes. You state it is because you desire to see wondrous things from His Law. The wondrous things are the hidden secrets deep within The Scriptures that requires you to be a True Christian with The Holy Spirit living inside of you along with Jesus Christ living in your heart as well in order for you to be able to see them. These are the mysteries of The Gospel you read about in many places in The Bible.
Third, you state that you want things revealed to you from God’s Law, which is another name for The Bible. This is because The Bible literally has every answer to every question that has ever been conceived, that is being conceived now, and that will ever be conceived in the future. There is nothing new under the sun. Things may seem new when they are “discovered” or “invented” or “designed” by people, but when you actually study history you will find all these “discoveries,” “inventions,” and “designs” were already made before often long ago.
Finally, the lesson from this Bible Study is to start praying this Scripture of Psalm 119:18 into your life and to start going deep into The Bible to study daily. This is something that you must do in order to get the privilege to get into Heaven in the end.
That is all for this Bible Study. I hope you have found this to be enlightening and that you can apply the teachings to your lives. Please share this with everyone you know. God bless you all.
