You have the anointing that comes from the holy one, and you have all knowledge.
Sometimes, you don't fell like you have all knowledge.
Life gets confusing, frustrating, difficult. So where do you find this truth that you supposedly already know.
Two "books" can five you "all knowledge," i.e. the Word of God. The first, of course, is Scripture. The other "book" is the world around you.
God is revealed to you in the world God created. The earth will teach you about God and God's goodness, but only if you let it.
That can be hard. Sometimes we treat the world like it's a throwaway. We may pay little or no attention to the presence of God around us. We may not consider that the earth and all that's in it is God's creation.
Oh, you may think about God during the power of a thunderstorm or in the beauty of a brilliantly blue sky. But you may not think about God in the little things, in the wonderful balance of nature, in the water, the plants, the animals.
Yes, the earth can give you knowledge and truth about God.
You just have to pay attention.
