We have been given a wonderful gift (a treasure, really) from God. We have been given, and entrusted with His word. There are so many wonderful, life-affirming promises in the Bible.
The Bible is our instruction manual. It’s our anchor. When we feel lost and can’t find our way, we can turn to the word of God, which is a light unto our path. When we face challenges and need strength to carry on, we can find help in the word of God. The Bible also offers guidance when we come to a point of decision along this road of life, and need to know which road to take. The Lord is there to instruct us through His word.
The Bible is filled with so many answers to the problems we face everyday. The Bible instructs us on how to have a happy and successful marriage (Ephesians 5:22-33; Prov. 21:19).
We learn how to raise obedient and well-adjusted children (Ephesians 6:1-4; Prov. 22:6; Prov. 22:15).
Scripture shows us how to be a good friend and neighbor (Luke 10:29-37; Prov. 18:24).
It also guides us in the ways of holiness (Romans 6:19; 2 Cor. 7:1).
It teaches us the ways of wisdom (Prov. 4:7; James 1:5).
The Bible is jam-packed with everything we need to live a life that is pleasing to God. Everything we need can be found in the word of God! No matter what it is, God’s got an answer for you.
Will you allow Him to instruct you? He wants to help you today.
Search His word. Seek His truth. Ask God to reveal Himself to you through His word, and He will do it!
Revelation comes from God!
