The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever.”
📖 This world is full of uncertainties. These uncertainties also affect God’s children. But God has given us, His children, amazing tools to keep trials from overwhelming us.
📖For instance, He placed His Spirit inside each believer to guide and empower us
In addition, He gave us the privilege of prayer so that we would not only communicate and stay connected with our Father but also bring Him our requests.
📖Today, I want to focus on another one of His marvelous gifts of God: the Bible, His Word.
📖The Scripture, the actual Word of God Almighty, is TRUTH.
📖 It never changes. What is more, it enables us in all circumstances, giving us a solid basis for making decisions and choosing which direction to go.
📖There are thousands of promises in the Bible and, countless assurances, that we can rely on with perfect confidence.
📖God wants us to learn them so we would not miss out on the blessings He wants to give us.
📖 We can wisely turn His promises and assurances into prayers and the cries of our hearts.
📖Let me give you an example that relates to difficult decisions. Psalm 32:8 states, ´I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go; I will counsel you with My eye upon you.´ We can pray God´s words back to Him, saying that we believe He will teach us and reveal His path, while remaining by our side as our caregivers through the entire situation.
📖We call this Taking or Holding God by His Word. There are many promises and assurances in the Bible that we can pray back to God. How do we get these promises and assurances? Keep on reading and studying the Scriptures.
📖Let us hold or take God by His Words. They are His Words, He cannot deny them.
👉 But note: you do not read the Bible just to look for God’s promises and assurances, you MUST also allow God’s Word to speak to you, and you MUST obey His Word.
📖It is is a pity that many Church attendees, encouraged by their pastors, go to the Bible only to hunt for God’s promises and assurances. This phenomenon has destroyed the importance of the Scriptures in the psyche of “Christians”. It is the handiwork of Luciferianism, guided by the New Age Movement in this Century.
📖 Read, study, appropriate, and apply God’s Word in your life. His Return is at Hand.
Shalom and Maranatha!
