I think you thought that

“Then He opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures”  Luke 24:45 (NIV)

The Scriptures are also referred to as God’s Word or Holy Bible. The Bible can be described as “God’s thoughts written down in book form”.  He doesn’t just want us to read it, He longs for us to read His mind. He wants us to know how He thinks.

Close friends often times seem to “read each others minds”. And I’ve heard the conversation between a husband and wife, “let’s go to the game early so we can get the seats we like. Good idea, you just read my mind.” They aren’t actually ‘mind readers’, instead they just know each other so well from being together, sharing thoughts through multiple conversations, watching each other react to situations, that they get a pretty good idea what the other is thinking.

We can get to know God by reading the Bible and praying, and according to today’s verse, we can also ask Him to open our minds to a greater understanding of how He thinks. That encompasses an understanding of people, relationships, handling money, ourselves, as well as, knowing His character and personality.


Heavenly Father, open my mind so I can understand the Scriptures. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
