A revelation from God can be a divine or supernatural disclosure to a particular person or group of people, conveying something that pertains to their existence. However, in today's article, I want to generalise about the revelation of the Word, and how to benefit from it. More below!

Reference: 2 Samuel 7:17 New International Version (NIV)

"Nathan reported to David all the words of this entire revelation."

The Bible recorded in 2nd Samuel that one night the word of the Lord came to Nathan, saying: 'Go and tell my servant David, "This is what the Lord says."'

I understand that when we read further, Nathan conveyed a message that has to do with establishing the throne of David's kingdom forever. However, it came as a word from the Lord. And notatly, Nathan reported to David, all the words of the entire revelation from God.

What is the underlying significance? God always wants you to receive His Word with sufficient clearness. In addition, to receive and establish it in your life, you need the full revelation. The continual establishment of the Kingdom of God in our hearts comes by revelation of the Word. Zero wonder the Psamist says this about God's Word: "The revelation of your words brings light and gives understanding to the inexperienced" (Psalm 119:130 BSB). Many translations used the word, "simple" instead of "inexperienced." Simply put, the "Word disclosure" illuminates, thereby providing an empowering understanding to the simple. Who are the simple? The simple are those with patient and teachable spirit, who are willing to receive the Word like a child and grow by it.

Those who believe in the Word should be serious about it, by always desiring to know more of it and love it better. They should stick to it because it is the only true way to happiness. By this, I mean that the wisdom from the Word enlarges the heart with gladness and brings unspeakable comfort to the soul. It doesn't only come with joy and comfort, it also guides and teaches us God's ways in every sense of divine light. As we pay attention to it, the revelation of the Word becomes the light within us, the light around us, and the light that reflects through us. So the more you go for the revelation of the Word, the more it increases in you, and most importantly, understand that there is no limit to what the Word can do, as you fill the world around you and beyond - with it.

Colossians 3:16 reads, "Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts" (NIV). In this passage, apostle Paul puts before us a Christ whose fullness is rich through His knowledge and then, calls for our continual accumulation of it, through its study, exhortation and admonition, and by teaching and engaging others with it. In addition, allowing the Word to dwell richly in us also entails having a strong relationship with the fuller and expository knowledge - by way of faith.

On the basis of its guiding principles, the Word can empower you with the entirety of its revelation, such that when applied, the results will reflect in all your active pursuits, enterprise, interests, schemes and business of life, not merely as the words you express. Shalom!

Scripture Reading - Psalm 119:105; 1 Corinthians 2:10; Ephesians 1:17; 2 Timothy 3:16.

Guided Prayer:

Heavenly Father, I'm grateful because you've given me infinite access to all the fullness of Christ, through the revelation of the Word. There is always an ability to reach out for more in the storehouse of the Word, which can never be exhausted. Your wisdom is stamped upon my life as your eternal purpose, and I ascend in grace by unifying myself with the perfections it conveys, in Jesus' Name, Amen!
