We are living in a day when lives are torn apart due to the very lack of faith in God. When the world is going in a completely opposite direction than that which the Lord leads, it is certainly time for prayer. Faithfulness is required in times like these. That is, faithfulness in the reading, studying, and application of the Holy Scriptures. Without it (faith) , it is impossible to please God (Hebrews 11:6). This is one of the reasons there is so much hatred, confusion, discord, and every evil intention, loosed in the world…. lack of (true) faith. True faith dispels all doubt and even when doubt shows up, true faith takes a stance against it and allows one to stand in belief …. and rest….in the fulfillment of God’s power, purpose, and plan.
For the love of God, reach out from under all the weight of the world. Grab a hold of His Word and receive all He has for your life today. He (God) longs for you to know Him for yourself today. He knows the heart of men and has a way of positioning others in our lives to help us stand and live!
We must examine ourselves and be careful concerning the things and the people of God. For God is love and LOVE covers a multitude of sin (1 Peter 4:8). The heart is desperately wicked… who can know it (Jeremiah 17:9, Matthew 13:15)… except God. When we hide the word of God in our hearts and yield our “members”, our minds, our homes, our conversations, our attitudes, our bodies… to it, it becomes that much easier to stand against the wiles of the devil.
Expose every work of satan by allowing the light of the Word of God to reign in every area of your heart (life) today and forever more. God is rich to all that call upon him and the love of God is perfected in them that keep his word. (Romans 10:12, 1 John 2:3-6)
Thank God today that you have power over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you (Luke 10:19).
