So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
You know that God can speak to you through his word when you read the Bible, when you hear a sermon, and when you pray. But he can also speak to you through other believers, through music, even social media. God can speak to you in so many ways if you would only surround yourself with the things of God and put yourself in a position to be receptive.
You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.
We have been chosen and adopted by God as His own children. His unshakable power lives in us and His Word is written on our hearts as we experience His truth. We have the victory over evil through Christ Jesus by faith.
The unfolding of Your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple.
If you read your Bible in faith, studying the truth, asking God to give you understanding of what was, what is, and what is to come the Lord, by His grace, will enlighten your mind and soul. God’s word gives understanding to all who seek Him.
Pay careful attention to your own work, for then you will get the satisfaction of a job well done, and you won’t need to compare yourself to anyone else.
Don’t fall into the trap of comparing yourself to anyone else. God created you and you are unique. If you are comparing yourself to someone who is doing better than you, you could fall into the sin of envy. If you are comparing yourself to someone who is worse off than you, you could fall into the sin of pride. God wants you to be the best you can be by following Christ’s example. Live your life according to God’s Word and you will do well.
For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
The Bible, which is the Word of God, isn’t some old irrelevant book of stories. It is alive and active today and forever more. If you begin to read God’s word, I promise, it will begin to change your life. Whatever you are going through the answer is in God’s word.
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
Navigating this world is no easy task. But the more we know God’s Word, the more we can apply it to our lives. The more we apply it to our lives, the clearer the path becomes. Sometimes it may feel like we are lost or walking in the dark but God’s Word is here to guide us and to show us the way we should go. Let God guide you through this world with his Word.
