God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.__ John 4:24
God’s Word is The Truth. That is a decision that believers make when we accept Jesus as our Redeemer; the Perfect Sacrifice for my (our) imperfect lives. Our Salvation is based on the Word of God. We cannot take part of God’s Word and leave the rest. Partial truth is a lie, as partial obedience is disobedience.
The Old Testament is so encouraging to me as it reveals the character of our Holy God. God is ALL-powerful. And at times, He displayed His wrath in His wisdom. Moreover, God is revealed as loving, merciful, redemptive and faithful. From Abraham to Joseph to Moses we learn how God works in the lives of those who believe in Him. It is profitable to know the character of the God we serve. It is comforting to know the character of God.
We have a Helper, the Holy Spirit to interpret and more important, to apply the Word of God to our lives daily. I have had the privilege of sharing my experiences wherein I was guided to make wise decisions by the Holy Spirit. Just a whisper, “Be quiet” and once, “Don’t’ say ANTYTHING!” lol I am convinced that those decisions to obey made the difference in the circumstances that followed.
I have also had the privilege of seeing the joy in the life of others who have sought AND RECEIVED help from the Holy Spirit. John 14:26 states that He will bring to our remembrance all that we have been taught. Time in God’s Word is an eternal investment with abiding benefits. And in the present (for the other Trekkies) God’s Word has a “cloaking affect” lol A peace that surpasses all understating.
Prepare for the journey. Fill your quivers!
But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.__John 14:26 KJV
And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.__Philipans 4:7 KJV
