You must be in fellowship prior to your Bible study, so that the spiritual information you receive can become a source, of blessing to your soul and produce spiritual growth.
19 But be
not thou far [rachaq] from me, O LORD: [Yahovah]
O my strength, ['eyaluwth] haste [chuwsh] thee to help [`ezrah] me. KJV-Interlinear
Thou, O Lord, be not far off; O Thou my help, hasten to my assistance. NASB
The word of God is the mind of Christ. These are His thoughts.
Reading and studying the Bible, and doing so while in fellowship, places His thoughts, knowledge, understanding, wisdom, in you.
When on the cross, there was no one standing in His corner. He had been abandoned by everyone, opposed by everyone, retained loyalties from no one.
Only God, stood with Him. Only God stands with you.
Regardless of the circumstances you find yourself in, due to history, due to circumstances, due to your own decisions, due to whatever, God and God alone, is with you always.
God had a plan for Jesus' life. He was to go to the cross for you and me. That plan was not going to change. Jesus was to endure it regardless of how it progressed.
God has a plan for your life. Often times we might wonder why certain things happen, but more often than not, they happen for our own good. Whether for our learning, whether for someone else's observation, one cannot say, But God knows what He is doing, and God is never wrong in anything.
God is never far from you. All three members of the Trinity indwell each and every believer in Christ. That includes you.
God sustains your life. He is the source of your strength and all that you are, regardless of what you might think of that.
And as you add doctrine to your soul, within the framework of Gods spiritual process, then your strength and inner resources grow exponentially.
God is always there to help, but in accordance with His wishes and plan and timetable, not yours.
