Truth


Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 1 John 4:1 MEV

How do we know what is true or not? If it’s not biblical it’s not truth. Sometimes what is true at the time is perceived to be absolute but What is true at present may not be in the next moment. What is true, therefore, can change but the truth of God’s Word is eternally true.

People can be swayed by those who mingle what is true, or not, with the truth. This is how demonic spirits work through individuals to control the multitudes.

For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. 2 Corinthians 10:3 MEV

To be Bible literate, to be well versed in the Bible, is to be protected from destructive error. Knowing what the Bible teaches is absolute truth and that is how deception is avoided and well being is insured.

Spirits are tested by what they promote; Christ or anti-Christ, Bible or philosophy, truth or error.


Forgiven

Bless the Lord , O my soul, and forget not all His benefits, who forgives all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies, who satisfies your mouth with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. The Lord does righteousness and justice for all who are oppressed. He made known His ways to Moses, His acts to the people of Israel. The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in mercy. He will not always accuse, neither will He keep his anger forever. He does not treat us according to our sins, nor repay us according to our iniquities. For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is His mercy toward those who fear Him; as far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us. Psalms 103:2‭-‬12 MEV

Surely he has borne our grief and carried our sorrows; Yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon him, and by his stripes we are healed. All of us like sheep have gone astray; each of us has turned to his own way, but the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us allIsaiah 53:4‭-‬6 MEV

But now in Christ Jesus you who were formerly far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ. Ephesians 2:13 MEV


Praise Him!


Sing praises to God, sing praises; sing praises to our King, sing praises. Psalms 47:6 MEV

Praise brings the Presence.

But You are holy, O You who inhabits the praises of Israel. Psalms 22:3 MEV

Praise brings Peace.

And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will protect your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7 MEV

Praise brings Victory.

“I have told you these things so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But be of good cheer. I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 MEV

So, no matter what you’re facing, spend time praising the Lord. You will feel His presence, experience His peace, and establish your victory.


Blessing

Blessed are those who keep His testimonies, and who seek Him with all their heart. Psalms 119:2 MEV

God wants first place in our lives. He wants us to live according to His revealed will which is found in the Bible.

He does not want just compliance but willing obedience that issues from a relationship of love.

But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be given to you. Matthew 6:33 MEV

Seek Him and Obey His Word and the Blessing follows.

Surely goodness and mercy shall followme all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. Psalms 23:6 MEV


Friends?


Do not be deceived: “Bad company corrupts good morals.” 1 Corinthians 15:33 MEV

Who do you count as being your “friend”?This is an important question that each of us needs to consider. Why? Because you will start to think and act like who you hang out with.

If those you spend the most time with are those who are faithless, doubting, negative, immoral, people they will begin to influence you and strip you of your joy, peace and purity. 

So too, if you cultivate friendships with faith-filled people who are holy, pure, and positive, you will be encouraged and strengthened by them. Your life will go so much better.

So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Romans 10:17 MEV

Surround yourself with Word talking people. Get together at church and church activities and build and protect your faith.

Let us not forsake the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but let us exhort one another, especially as you see the Day approaching. Hebrews 10:25 MEV

 Take control of your life.


Don’t Waver

He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strong in faith, giving glory to God,  Romans 4:20 MEV

Now is not the time to waver. What God has promised He will do.

It’s so easy to focus on the circumstance or situation rather than the promises of God but we must be fully persuaded that His Word is true.  Like Abraham of old we must count God’s promise as sure.

And not being weak in faith, he did not consider his own body to be dead (when he was about a hundred years old), nor yet the deadness of Sarah’s womb. He did not waiver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strong in faith, giving glory to God, and being fully persuaded that what God had promised, He was able to perform.  Romans 4:19‭-‬21 MEV

Be strong in faith and give glory to God today. It will change everything.


Answers


By faith we understand that the universe was framed by the word of God, so that things that are seen were not made out of things which are visible. Hebrews 11:3 MEV

By faith we already have the answers scientists are searching for. Faith in God and His Word reveals the truth of creation. It’s a wise man who then seeks God in his search for answers. The Bible not only tells us how things were created but by whom they were created.

Of Jesus is is recorded:

All things were created through Him, and without Him nothing was created that was created.  John 1:3 MEV

Amazing what you can know by reading the Bible.
