God’s word is meant to change the way you think. The Bible will/should cause you to think differently.
There are so many voices out there trying to change your thinking, but only one that leads to eternal life and receiving the promises of God. When people say, “I serve God,” here is what they are saying, “My life is built on the word of God. No matter what subject, what I have been taught, or what anyone else says or thinks, it’s the word of God (Bible) that instructs my life, corrects my life, and encourages my life. It supersedes everything and everyone.”
With all your heart:
So, when you don’t get it or don’t understand everything, because you believe in God Almighty and you believe the Bible is the word of God, you simply say OK! Why? Because the scriptures tell us not to lean on our own understanding, but to trust in the Lord with all our heart (Proverbs 3:5).
Listen, the word of God is meant to help you — never hurt you — to build you up, to encourage you, to instruct you, and to correct you — not because God is mad at you, but because He truly does love you and He wants the best for you. He is always working to convince you of that.
God’s word is right, and it is the right thing to do in every situation of your life. When you don’t understand — obey! It will help you.
Just a thought,
