The answer or solution to any problem that a person encounters in life can be found in the Bible. It is the road map that guides people out of a world of darkness, hopelessness or despair.
|Psalm 119:105 “ Thy word is a lamp unto my|
feet, and a light unto my path.” (KJV)
A ship at sea that has been caught in a storm, will be tossed to and fro with the blowing of the wind, if the ship has no rudder or anchor. So the same can be with a believer in the journey of life if they are not grounded, or have no sense of direction.
The Bible will keep a believer anchored when they encounter a storm, and will serve as a rudder to help with navigating through deep, and dangerous areas when trials or troubles come their way.
|Hebrews 4:12 “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” (KJV)|
We should read the Bible:
- study it regularly
- share it freely
- quoted it when needed
The Bible will
- Satisfy your hunger
- Quench any thirst that you have
When a person reads the Bible, then applies that scripture in their lives, defeat turns into victory.
|James 1:22-24 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. 23 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; 24 for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was.(NKJV)|
A Pastor that has went home to be with the Lord often opened Bible study asking everyone to stand, lift their Bibles up, and repeat after him saying;
“This is my Bible“
“I am what it says I am“
“I can do what it says I can do“
“I can be what it says I can be”
“I am the head and not the tail“
“I am in the front and not the back”
“I am healed and not sick”
“I am to lend and not borrow”
“I am on top and not the bottom”
“Thanks be to God who always causes me to conquer”
“Heavenly Father, thank you for the Holy Bible that gives your people “Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth.” As we read and study your word, I pray that it will give your people strength, courage, wisdom, knowledge and understanding. Let the words that are written in the Bible take root in our hearts, minds, soul and spirit, and then grow bearing much fruit for your Kingdom. In Jesus name…Amen!
