Do You Know the Scriptures?

For I know that the LORD is great,
And our Lord is above all gods.

(Psalm 135:5)

LORD Jesus, we praise You, for You are above all – all gods, all people, and all situations. Forgive us, O God we pray, whenever we doubt that You are in control. Help us to look up to the One who has made the heavens and the earth and everything in it. Do not let us doubt that You are – and that You remain – on the throne. You are the One who is able to perform and nothing is impossible for You. Enable us, so we may not only have a form of godliness, but that our lives show our dependence on You and the Power that can only come from You. In Jesus’ mighty name, we pray. Amen.

While Waiting For God to Move

Do you know that the LORD is great and above all? Do you believe that He can and will work together all things for us – the ones who love Him?

In my last post, I urged us,

While we are waiting for Him to move, let us be careful not to allow doubt, disbelief, and despair into the whole situation.

The Wisdom We Need

Yet, how often do we fail to acknowledge that the LORD is great and above and through and in it all? Why? Let us be honest, is it not because we do not believe? How do we get more faith – the wisdom we so desperately need?

Pray

We lack the wisdom to face many of life’s issues, for we do not ask God for it (James 1:5).

Hear

Another reason why we fail to know by heart that God is great and above all situations is that we do not hear when He answers us. We have to know how to hear His voice today.

Read

Hebrews 1:1-2 tells us that God used to speak to our fathers by His prophets, but now speaks to us by His Son, who is also called “The Word.”

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us,
and we beheld His glory,
the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,
full of grace and truth.

(John 1:14)

That is the reason for the season. We as Christians celebrate Christmas to declare that “the Word became flesh and dwelt among us.”

Beloved, we need to know the Word of God! We have to ask God for wisdom, yes. We need the nourishment and listen to God’s Word being preached on Sunday, yes. Most of all, though, we need to get back to reading the Word, studying our Bibles, and knowing what the Scriptures say.

Let us now make a New Year’s Resolution for 2024:
to spend more time in God’s Word every day.
