Look Deeply

Some who doubt that the Bible is the true Word of God doubt it because they're unwilling to ascribe to God anything they're unable themselves achieve. If you have any uncertainty about the inspiration of the Bible, go back and look at it again. Look at it in the light of a person who has been staring at a mud puddle all his life, and who is confronted for the first time by a view of the ocean. Perhaps you're only now catching your first glimpse of God’s unlimited power. Perhaps you're only now beginning to understand Him for who He actually is. For if God is the Spirit that Jesus declares Him to be, there's no problem of providence, there's no problem of His sovereignty in the affairs of men, there's no problem of His inspiration of the men who wrote the Bible. Everything fits into place once you understand who God really is.
