…human beings are predisposed to bad judgment, because our minds are simply unable to keep track of everything that goes on in us and around us.
We may feel afraid and discouraged at times in this life, like the battles are too big to overcome. But we are to stick to God’s facts, and not our feelings.
To deny that God’s Word (The Bible) is truth is to say that Christ lied. To say, “well maybe not all of it was true”, makes Christ a liar and a fool because He said it was true.
We will only follow a leader that we believe knows more than us, otherwise we will go off on our own path because we believe we know better. Likewise, it is only when we accept God’s sovereign knowledge as superior to our own that we will follow Him.
…We can only know ourselves through God! We can’t know ourselves through introspection, we can’t know ourselves through meditation. We can’t know ourselves through our friends’ opinions. Only God knows who we really are; only through Him can we get a glimpse into our own personalities.
Believers do not have to be victims of false teachers with false teachings. Every Believer CAN know the Word of God for himself/herself, BECAUSE we have the Holy Spirit indwelling our hearts!
God already knows the state of our thoughts and hearts, but many times we do not. By His “searching” and “testing” it is revealed to us what we are truly like…
Righteousness is not proven by what you don’t do; it is not proven by what laws you don’t break. Righteousness IS proven by what you DO!!!
If we indeed intend to heed God’s call to service, let us then commit ourselves to sanctification: to being washed by His Word. Let us determine to study God’s Word that He might set us apart unto Himself, for His use ONLY.
