“And how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy: 15-17
Friend, whatever you are looking for in life, it starts with God. He is the Source. People tend to forget who God is when they are going through the tough times, in reality, when facing challenges we must always focus on the word of God. It is absolutely critical that we, as the people of God, be firmly, unshakably, anchored in His truth. The world is looking at us. Our lives must reflect the power of the living God. For some reason, God's people constantly want to drift. Christ promised to never leave us alone, but we worry when facing adversity. David said, "I esteemed your words more important to me than my daily food, more precious than riches of gold and silver." We can only acquire spiritual strength by meditating upon the word of God. The psalmist said in Psalm 119:105 - a verse that many of us have memorized - "Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path." The word of God sheds light to enable me how to live, how to proceed. There cannot be darkness in the presence of God.
Are you going through a confusing and challenging time? Lean on God and meditate on His word. Joshua was going through a tough time, but he stood firm because God told him he would have success as long as he meditated on the book of law. He was told not to let it depart out of his mouth. He was told to stay focused on it. Uncertainty and confusion can only set in when we lose our focus on the word of God.
It is through reading God’s Word that we come to acknowledge His righteousness and that which He requires of us; friend, study the Bible for that is where you'll learn of God and His plans.
Praise the Lord!
