Joni on the cover of Bible Study MagazineJoni Eareckson Tada is featured on the cover of the–June ’13 issue of Bible Study Magazine. In this special issue, she shares her love for Scripture, faith, and Bible study. Here’s an excerpt from the cover story…

“Proverbs mandates us to search, as though mining hidden treasures, as though prospecting for precious metal. The wisdom is down deep in there; but God wants to know that we take Him and His commands seriously, and so He requires that we study, search and seek Him out. Prudence and discernment, understanding and knowledge, insight and wisdom don’t come casually or lightly. They come by hard and earnest effort.”
Tada finds that insights into God’s Word come at unexpected times: “I often ask God to help me understand some concept of His Word on a deeper level. It’s later that I’ll often experience insight. For example, my husband, Ken, recently took me snorkeling in Hawaii. As a quadriplegic, putting my face down in the water is scary. But as he flipped me over and held my body, I saw a giant sea turtle. I was so mesmerized by this creature. Its fins cut through the water with such beauty and grace. In comparison, I am gangly. … People on the beach stare at me—I’m not a pretty sight. But I am the epitome of God’s creation, not that sea turtle. It is so incredible to have life—even paralyzed life—because we’re image bearers of God no matter where we are. I gained a whole new insight into this concept, just as it was given in Genesis 1, while I was swimming with sea turtles.”

Dear Joni, Recently I discovered the same thing you mentioned that for real knowledge of the Bible I have to do my utmost best.I often study the Bible with the Nave's Topical Bible because it is a recommendation of dr Billy Graham. I also receive knowledge of the Bible by obeying Him from day to day and by meditating His word,the Bible.And learning His word by heart gives spiritual and psychological healing.
