2 Peter 1:20,21
"Know this first of all that no prophecy of Scripture comes from someone's own interpretation. For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit." ESV
So many skeptics of the Bible use the reasoning that it is merely words written by men and what they believe. That same reasoning was used back in the time of the Apostle's. How can those who are not spiritually alive ever understand the things of the Spirit? How can they understand that the Holy Spirit works and speaks through human beings who are faithful and open to Him? We know that the Word of God is inspired by Him and Him alone. Those who wrote down the words, wrote what the Holy Spirit told them to write. From the world's view, that sounds foolish doesn't it? However, from the eyes of those with the light of Christ, the truth of God's Word is more real than this page displayed before our eyes.
Heavenly Father, how we thank You for Your Word given to us through men inspired by Your Holy Spirit. While it is foolish to those in darkness, we revel in the Light Your Word gives us to know You and to walk in this world victoriously. In Jesus' name, Amen.
