A Sure Word

In the day and age when the foun­da­tions of truth are erod­ing and the moral lines are be­ing blurred, we must be on guard to what en­ters our minds and hearts. In­for­ma­tion is ev­ery­where. The chal­lenge for us is to be able to dis­cern the facts from the truth... the po­lit­i­cally cor­rect from the truth... and even the laws from the truth. The ques­tion may arise in your mind? What re­ally is the truth? How can we re­ally know what the truth is in this mod­ern age? There are many ar­gu­ments I can put as to why I be­lieve the Word of God is the ul­ti­mate Truth we must base our life upon. Ul­ti­mately, I can tell you that God is a never-chang­ing God in an ev­er­chang­ing world: “I am the LORD, and I do not change.” I can as­sure you that He “will never leave you nor for­sake you.” I can take you to scrip­tures that prom­ise that His Word is sure and stead­fast such as: “Ev­ery word of God is flaw­less; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him...” and “Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.” I can also as­sure you that the Word of God has the fi­nal au­thor­ity in the spirit realm: “Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole ar­mour of God that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wres­tle not against flesh and blood, but against prin­ci­pal­i­ties, against pow­ers, against the rulers of the dark­ness of this world, against spir­i­tual wicked­ness in heav­enly places.” I can try to con­vince you by a well­writ­ten ar­ti­cle stat­ing all the rea­sons why God is the foun­da­tion of all truth; how­ever, I will not even at­tempt it. What I will at­tempt is to chal­lenge you to ask God to prove Him­self to you in­stead. I as­sure you WHEN you en­counter God, you WILL KNOW the TRUTH and the TRUTH will set you free! Paul couldn’t have writ­ten these verses more clearly to show you what is in my heart for you... “My broth­ers and sis­ters, when I first came to pro­claim to you the se­crets of God, I re­fused to come as an ex­pert, try­ing to im­press you with my elo­quent speech and lofty wis­dom. For I was in­ten­tion­ally con­sumed with one topic – Je­sus, the cru­ci­fied Mes­siah. I stood be­fore you feel­ing in­ad­e­quate, filled with rev­er­ence for God, and trem­bling un­der the sense of the im­por­tance of my words. The mes­sage I preached and how I preached it was not an at­tempt to sway you with per­sua­sive ar­gu­ments but to prove to you the almighty power of God’s Holy Spirit. For God in­tended that your faith not be es­tab­lished on man’s wis­dom but by trust­ing in His Almighty power.” 1 Corinthi­ans 2:1-5

Dear friends, take the chal­lenge to ask God to show Him­self to you. Moses prayed “Show me Your glory.” Dare to risk hear­ing from God! Dare to risk step­ping out in faith to ask if He is real. Dare to ask Him to re­veal Him­self. He is wait­ing... He is long­ing... He is knock­ing on the door of your heart but you must be the one to open the door. Scrip­ture ref­er­ences: Malachi 3:6, Proverbs 30:5, Matthew 24:35
