2 Peter 1-21

For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.
2 Peter 1:21


For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.

Thoughts on the Verse
Where did Scripture come from? What is the basis of our faith in the Bible and the Gospel? Peter wants us to realize that the prophets of ancient times  only moved and responded to what God was doing in them, not what they themselves wanted to do or say. They were human, but their message was God's word because the Holy Spirit moved them to speak and guided their words. This makes what we have in Scripture from the prophets more than precious: we are given the very words of God.

Prayer

Almighty God, thank you for inspiring ordinary people to give us your extraordinary message. Thank you for delivering that essential message to us in the Bible and preserving it through times of persecution, hardship and opposition. Please use those same Scriptures to ignite a new revival in my heart and throughout our land. In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
