Dailies~ In His Word
October 2019
Many times, I have watched as people chose to ignore God’s word and His desires and attempt to do what they thing is best instead. They end up often wallowing in muck and mire instead of walking down a smooth trail lead by the Lord Jesus. We need to pay attention to what we read in the Word of God, and what is spoken from teachers or preachers wherever we hear them. Then we weigh it all with what we know to be good and truth; the Bible, our Word of God that speaks to our hearts and minds. Why do we do this when the Word shows us how to live? How do we go on reading it and not apply it to our lives?
Some really choose to not do what it says because they enjoy living in the world having its ‘fun’. The thing we need to remember is that we have Christ with us, and so when we find we are trying to just wing it, or do it on our own; God’s Sprit convicts us and this can make us act in anger due to our own annoyance with ourselves for failing to do the Will of God. It’s okay though! You can walk back into the word and repent for the foolishness you have done; God wants to direct our paths always and He is a forgiving God.
 Human anger does not produce the righteousness God desires.  So, get rid of all the filth and evil in your lives, and humbly accept the word God has planted in your hearts, for it has the power to save your souls. But, don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves. James 1:20-22
So, stop being mad and angry, give peace a chance! Ha ha! Peace comes with faith; faith comes from hearing and hearing by the Word of God! Romans 10:27
If you claim to be religious but don’t control your tongue, you are fooling yourself, and your religion is worthless. Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you. James 1:26-27
Do the right thing, help those orphans and widows in their distress! Help them and do good things that will keep you from wallowing I selfish desires, or sorrow. Keep our minds on things above, and on the Word of God, that way we will not sin against God but be pure and holy as He is holy!
Heavenly Father, thank you for giving us the Word to read and to plant in our hearts, and to apply to our lives. Help us to read it and know it and use it for Your Glory, in Jesus’ name, amen.
