This world we live in is moving along at a fast pace and it looks like “life’s pace” may even be getting more strenuous. Have you ever wondered “what you are doing” or “where you are going” in your life? Have you ever been concerned about what is going on in the world today or even in your own neighborhood today? Do you have answers to where you are going?
I have good news for you today. Wisdom, knowledge, understanding, and guidance are all available and easily accessible at our fingertips. We need to put the Word of God in our hearts and allow God to do the rest. Read and study if you would Mark 4:3-20. These scriptures tell us what happens in our lives relative to our level of accepting and applying the Word of God to our lives. We can allow ourselves to slip away into the condition we once lived or we can accept the Word and become productive members of the Body of Christ.
Mark 4:13 (NIV) 13 Then Jesus said to them, “Don’t you understand this parable? How then will you understand any parable?
If we can get to where we understand this parable, we are on the path to understanding the rest of the parables and the significance of the Word of God which is the Bible. When we try to change our lives our way it can be frustrating and ineffective. When we come to where we allow God to change our hearts and set us free, our success is greatly increased.
John 8:32 (NIV) 32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
It is the “Truth” we know (and believe) that will set us free.
Once the Word of God gets into our hearts, then we enter a whole new realm of understanding and freedom.
If not already in the Word daily, it is time to get started.Blessings to you all as you allow the Word (the Bible) to change your hearts and lives forever!
