Have you heard about the doctor who printed his prescriptions in large, perfect letters... .no pharmacist could read them. The lack of Bible knowledge among so many is not a matter of lack of clarity on God's part, but a lack of effort by us. Bible reading and comprehension of the truths therein is something for everyone. (Ephesians 3:4)
Strive to be consistent. Have a regular time for the reading or if you prefer for listening to the scriptures. Do not be discouraged if you do read something that is difficult to understand, instead pray about it and continue to read. Often times those parts of the scriptures that are difficult are explained by parts that you will understand. (II Tim.2:15)
When reading the word be ready to be instructed. It is said that most people want to serve God, but mostly as advisors. Remember that we come before the scriptures to be taught by God. We must remove pride and humbly seek His will. Have you ever sit in class or taught a class where one of the students thought they already had all the answers? This is a poor way to be a disciple of Christ. (James 1:19-21)
For those who are experienced students of the Bible there should be the continued seeking and learning of God's will. Everyone can learn something and there is always the need to be reminded of old truths and to have them reinforced within our hearts and minds. (I Peter 1:12)
Certainly, every person is going to find a challenge in the study of the word of God if there heart is open to it. Mark Twain said, "It ain't those parts of the Bible that I can't understand that bother me, it is the parts that I do understand."
