The Answer Is In The Word

For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope ” -Romans 15:4 NKJV

Have you ever come across a problem that you just couldn’t solve yourself? When faced with that predicament who/where do you turn for answers? Now more than ever we have so much access to information and opinions. Today’s facts can change tomorrow and opinions are not a firm ground to stand on, but the Word of God is a firm foundation.

Let the Bible be your first source to learn from and get hope from. The Bible is a gift to us. It would be foolish to not open such a precious gift. Read it when you’re down it will give you hope. Read it when you’re mad it will calm you down and help you to reason. Study it to learn more about God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. Sometimes we desire for God to speak audibly to us, but He doesn’t do that much because the answers are in the Word.

Give God’s Way A Chance

A man’s heart plans his way, But the Lord directs his steps.”

– Proverbs 16:9 NKJV

Have you ever happily stepped out on faith only to later start having doubts and thinking of your own plan B, C, and D? Every thing is exciting in the beginning, but then all of a sudden things start getting REAL really quick. We could have literally stepped out on faith for something on January 1st only to start freaking out by January 7th and thinking of another way to do what God said that makes sense to us.

I’m sure many of us have been there before, and one day when I was freaking out a small still voice said to me “You haven’t even given God’s way a chance.” And it made me pause because it was true. It reminded me of the movie Fire Proof when the main character was doing a Love Dare to win his wife back. He was impatient and half way following the instructions of the dare, and was wondering why it wasn’t working. The man’s wise father told him to give the Love Dare a chance for real and actually finish it and see it through. To put his all into it withholding nothing.

So today I want to give that message to you, to give God’s way a fair chance. Don’t be so quick to throw in the towel. Continue to persevere. Our God works in mysterious ways. We may not always know the how’s and the when’s, but we can rest in knowing that God is faithful to fulfill His promises to us in due time.
