Is God’s Word, the Bible, all that important or is it just another book? Well, if you’ve been following my blogs, you know what I believe about God’s Word.
Everything we are, have, and believe is totally based on God’s Word: you get saved on God’s Word, your faith is based on God’s Word, and you live your whole life based on God’s Word. At least that’s the way God has set it up. Granted, this is not true of everyone.
If what you do and live is not based on God’s Word, what is it based on? The only thing left is the world’s way of doing things and you know how false that can be.
We are to be people who walk by faith and not by sight. That can’t happen if you don’t know God’s Word because that’s where faith is.
And another thing, all the answers you’ll ever need are in God’s Word. So when you pray about a particular issue, many times God will answer with a scripture that comes up from your spirit. BUT, you can’t remember something you never learned! That’s why it’s so vitally important that you get into the Word every day and get the Word into you. It can be the difference between life and death.
There are so many voices in the world that sometimes it’s difficult to distinguish between what’s of the Lord and what’s not. But Jesus said His sheep know His voice and that’s what we have to rely on. But if you don’t know His Word, you can be easily duped. Everything you hear, no matter which source it comes from, must line up with the Word of God, if it’s actually from God.
This, dear brothers and sisters, is something you must do for yourself. No one can do it for you. Yes, if takes effort and diligence but it’s worth every minute and has eternal rewards!
Romans 10:17 (KJV) 17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Romans 10:9-10 (KJV) 9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
Romans 1:17b (KJV) 17 … The just shall live by faith.
