If we don’t understand this spiritual truth, yet try to do everything without being connected to God as our Source, we can’t grow. I’ve known some people who, over twenty years, are still floating – without roots. Good understanding comes to those who apply it according to God’s precepts in the Word of God.
PS 49:3 My mouth will speak words of wisdom;
the utterance from my heart will give understanding.
Another powerful way of understanding is meditation.
PS 35:27 May those who delight in my vindication
shout for joy and gladness;
may they always say, “The LORD be exalted,
who delights in the well-being (prosperity) of his servant.”
PS 35:28 My tongue will speak of your righteousness
and of your praises all day long.
In Verse 28, the word “speak” means to mutter. Beloved! If we mutter, (meditate), everyday on the word “righteousness”, being His life in us, God will open Heaven for us.
As a preacher for over twenty years, I have found that as I study the Word, God sends money in. The Apostles prayed and studied the Word of God, so they could teach the Word with understanding, to expound it and make it alive for people to take and apply its truth.
