Thanks Brother George for the encouraging study. For a long time, I thought a study Bible would be the best way to understand God's word. I have been weaning myself off of it and just spending time reading a text only Bible. I have found that now I am waiting to let God define the words, revealing the meaning of the passage, and see the natural outlines of the thoughts instead of looking at the notes and references for a quick way out. It's true that some of the notes and references are useful. But it's more rewarding to let God teach me so that what I learn is mine. That knowledge tends to dwell in my heart more permanently. I hope it makes sense what I am trying to express. I just had a big dinner. I feel like all the blood is going into my stomach.
