Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint; But happy is he who keeps the law. (Proverbs 29:18 NKJV)
The definition of the word "revelation" according to Webster defines the word - 1: an act of revealing or communicating divine truth 2: something that is revealed by God to humans
3: an act of revealing to view or making known 4: something that is revealed; especially : an enlightening or astonishing disclosure.
In reading and studying Scripture, if one does not receive continued revelation in what they are reading, the Word will not impact them, and will not be making constant changes in their lives. Reading Scripture then merely becomes a moral obligation without any real evidence of God's working in them because the Word has not made an impact. It leads to an unhappy and unsatisfied life and a heart growing bitter towards God.
However those who seek God diligently and pray for fresh revelation daily are those who keep His law. Proverbs 4:20-23 states, "My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart; For they are life to those who find them, And health to all their flesh."
In keeping the living and revelational Word of God in our hearts, the Lord promises us a happy and fruitful life as we continue walking with Him. May He give you fresh revelation in His Word today!
