Does Social Media & the News Come Before the Word of God?

This is a no-brainer, or at least it should be. But, dear brothers and sisters, I sense that many people will answer yes to this question. In fact, there are probably a lot of things that come before the Word of God in most people’s daily routine. This is unacceptable and needs to be changed.

Now, don’t turn off just because of a loving rebuke. If we never got corrected, we’d keep doing that same wrong things over and over and getting nowhere! So hang on, it will get better.

I have observed over the years that many Christians appear to be doing the right thing, but then things happen and it throws them for a loop. Why is that? Most likely because they weren’t really doing what they needed to do but instead they were doing what everyone else in their circle was doing and it didn’t work in a crisis.

For those of you who read my blogs, you have noticed how much I emphasize getting into God’s Word and studying it to get it into your heart so that it’s there when you need it to come out. If it’s not in your heart, then what really is in your heart will come out and it probably won’t be enough to solve the problem.

Brothers and sisters, we live in dangerous times and we need to be ready for anything and everything that the enemy tries to throw at us. The time to build a boat is not in the middle of the storm! We have to build a firm foundation on the Word of God so that we’re rock-solid when the storms of life hit.

My suggestions is to have a daily New Testament Bible reading schedule that you stick with. Just open the New Testament and start anywhere. I suggest starting with the Gospel of John and go from there and then circle back to the other gospels. The New Testament is where I believe you should focus because that’s where we live today and that’s where we get our instructions for daily living. I also suggest reading one chapter daily from Proverbs in the Old Testament as they correspond with the day of the month and do this each month. There’s so much wisdom in Proverbs that you can glean and it will definitely be worthwhile.

Remember, we always have time for the things we really want to do so get your “want to” revved up and get into God’s Word and become faith giants!

2 Timothy 2:15 (KJV) 15  Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Job 23:12b (KJV) 12  … I have esteemed the words of his mouth [God] more than my necessary food.
Psalm 119:11 (KJV) 11  Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.
Psalm 119:89 (KJV) 89 For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.
Psalm 119:105 (KJV) 105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
Psalm 119:11 (KJV) 11  Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.
