Reading gives knowledge and knowledge understanding. Paul writes like this. “Do not be conformed to the world but be transformed by the renewing of your minds so that you may discern what is the will of God” (Romans 12:2). Reading the scriptures helps us understand God’s will for our lives. Many are constantly asking what is God’s will for me.

How he made known to me the mystery (Paul).
The Lord has yet more truth to break forth out of his word. Luther and Calvin were great and shining lights in their times, yet they penetrated not into the whole counsel of God; but were they now living would be willing to embrace more light, as that which they had first recieved. I beseech you to remember it- is is as an article of your church covenant that you be ready to receive whatever truth is made known to you from the written word (Rev John Robertson. Puritan leader)
