“But my heart stands in awe of Your word. I rejoice at Your word as one who finds great treasure.” (Psalm 119:161b-162, NKJV)
“When do you find great treasure or spoil? Usually after a battle.Thus, this verse indicates that Bible study involves a battle or conflict that starts with our own flesh.
The flesh and the natural mind don’t want to be disciplined enough to read and study the Word of God … He [Satan] will do anything he can to keep us from reading, studying, meditating on, and obeying the Word of God …
The devil puts distractions all around me to keep me from winning the battle of studying the Word of God.
Scripture is indeed a treasure to win … Bible study enriches our lives. It not only helps you understand the Word but also enables you to become more like the Author.”
