On what do we base our understanding of truth, which forms our view of, and purpose in life? Do we accept worldly philosophy and popular cultural beliefs, or the Word of God that has stood the test of time?
Archeological discoveries, fulfilled Biblical prophecies in current events, scientific findings, scholarly studies, increased technology, etc. all point to the Truth of God’s Word. Many who set out to prove that the Bible is false, discover its truth.
In these end times, before the return of Christ for His Bride, more and more people are dropping out of church, failing to make Bible reading a priority, going to Sunday worship but not evening Bible studies, and some even despise the Word of God (2 Timothy 4:3-4).
There will come a time when there will be a famine in the land of hearing the word of God (Amos 8:11-12). It only makes sense for us to make our personal devotion time, as well as attending Bible studies, as a huge priority in our life right now.
God calls His Church to focus on His Truth, to share His Gospel with anyone who will listen, to faithfully serve in a ministry, and to endure any hardships accompanying evangelizing our sphere of influence (2 Timothy 4:5).
We are called to treat God’s Word as hidden treasure, and to seek wisdom and understanding from it; then, we will comprehend what it means to “fear” the Lord, and we will find deeper understanding of who God is and what He wants from us (Proverbs 2:3-5).
Father God, Your Word gives us undeniable truths, such as the virgin birth, the resurrection of Christ from the dead, the Divine inspiration of the Bible, Your sovereignty, and the penalty of depravity, in addition to facts about our eternal destination. Thank You for Your Word and for Jesus, slain to pay the consequences of our sins, who was chosen before the foundation of the world (1 Peter 1:20).
We continue to exist because of Your mercy and grace. We thank You for the capacity to learn, the capability to search for truth, and the free will to choose what we believe. Expose worldly fables for what they are, open the eyes of those who seek You with all of their heart, and help us to find our truth in Your Word rather than in human philosophy.
Thought for the Day:
If we will line up our worldview with God’s Word, we will strengthen our soul, feed our spirit, and find truths that will help us to heal our body, which will all help us now and last for eternity.
