"All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness."- 2 Timothy 3:16-17
It is no surprise the extent of the quest of our human minds and hearts to have all of our needs and wants provided. We have a natural tendency to yearn for full satisfaction through material possessions or how much we could gain in this very competitive world market. For many, money is everything. Others treasure outward beauty and call it gain. For others, prestigious positions in society makes them feel complete, they say. Some find the answer in black magic, and call it instant release. That's what they live by. They believe in the power thereof to sustain them in these trying times.
Then he said, "Beware! Guard against every kind of greed. Life is not measured by how much you own." Luke 12:15 (NIV)
My friend life is not about gaining material things, for they soon will come to nothing. Do not let the things of the world consume you, to the point that you forget why you were created and by what means you can have full satisfaction, and unweavring hope in this troubled world. "Those who use the things of the world should not become attached to them. For this world as we know it will soon pass away."-1 Corinthians 7:31
We need what will stand and will make us stand strong through the toughest. What we need is the Word of God, written on the table of our hearts, consuming our minds and hearts each day. So that we can stand before the world and boldly proclaim that "Jesus Is The Answer!" We need Every Word of God. Heaven and earth will disappear, but my words will never disappear. -Mark 13:31
The Words of God is advantageous to successful survival in life!
It is God's Holy Word that will destroy the curses on your life; break down the barriers to your success; heal you when doctors says, "it's your final days"; protect you from dangers unseen or unknown; hold you together when everything is falling apart and you don't understand it. The Word of God has it's own power. It has been polished, sanctified and purified for your good and progression in life. But most importantly, God has engineered it in such a way that it will guide and secure our whole life in Him.
So, my encouragement to you today is "Live by the Word of God!" It will keep you!
Don't loose your soul over your possessions, instead save it by living by God's Words.
What will you live by?
