When it comes to God and who He is, there are so many lies about Him out there.
Be a doer of the word:
One might say, Doing the word of God is too hard. The truth is, God wouldn’t tell us to do something if we couldn’t do it. What makes it hard is at times we don’t want to do certain things the Bible says we should do. The Bible teaches: We can do all things through Christ Jesus who strengthens us. To be a true follower of Christ, we must learn and then practice scripture.
So many want God to do something while they sit back and do nothing. It doesn’t work that way. God gave us His word (Bible) to practice it, to do it. It’s the doers of the word who are blessed. Those who hear it and do it are blessed. Those who hear it and don’t do it are deceived. Too many think they can ignore God, do what they think is right, and be OK. The truth is, you’re not OK. It’s called disobedience. It’s the willing-to-obey crowd that is blessed (Isa. 1:19).
Father knows best:
We all must learn God’s word is not up for negotiation. God knows what is best for His creation. His ways and thoughts are higher than our ways and thoughts. This is the truth. This is what we all must learn in order to serve Him. Once we do, we will find we do have the strength to overcome and get through any situation we may face in life.
God wants to help us, but we must do things His way. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life.
Just a thought,
