"Therefore I esteem all thy precepts concerning all things to be right; and I hate every false way." Psalm 119:128
How do you feel about the Word of God? That may seem like a strange question but if we don't think correctly about it we will always be lacking in the area of truth and an open target for deception.
Do you accept it as the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth? Do you doubt that it is inerrant? Do you believe certain parts of it but not others? Do you believe that it is the infallible Word of God given to us by Him? Do you believe that it is the only truth and everything else that is contrary is a lie? Do you believe that it is absolute truth? Do you believe you should be following it?
How do you feel about teachings, opinions and philosophies that are contrary to its teachings? Do you believe there is room for them both- the Word of God and the other? Do you believe that it is all right to compromise its teachings in certain situations? Do you believe the Word of God is just one of many books of truth?
If you question the validity of the Word of God and do not put your trust in it as The Truth, you will always struggle and live your life in confusion. You will never have a firm foundation to stand upon. You will be tossed around with every wind of doctrine like an unanchored ship in a storm. You will be like a foolish man who builds his house upon the sand.
If you are confused, if you are struggling, if you are uncertain concerning the absolute fact that the Word of God is all truth and the only true source of truth, then it is time that you settle it in your own heart so that you can live your life like a wise man who built his house upon a rock.
Have a great day. How do you feel about the Word of God?
