“Thy WORD is a Lamp unto my Feet and a Light unto my Path.” (Psalm 119: 105)
The Good News is we have a roadmap to follow, and it is the WORD of GOD. If we lack understanding, ask God in prayer, and He will increase our faith to understand His wisdom and truth.
Following is an excellent road-map to guide us and equip us to apply His Word as we move toward eternity. Keeping our eyes upon the prize that is in Christ Jesus, let’s commit ourselves to the leading and inspiration of the Holy Spirit. The Word will lead you, instruct you, mature you, protect you, and supply promises needed to escape the fiery trials of life.
Knowledge is the Apprehension of TRUTH in one’s mind, but Wisdom is the Application of TRUTH to one’s life.
“But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves” (James 1:22).
THE GOAL OF THE WORD: To “study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15).
THE PURPOSE OF THE WORD: “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works” (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
THE QUESTIONS CONCERNING THE WORD:
THE PROMISE FROM THE WORD: “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).
“God’s past promises meet our present response.”
“Faith is believing God’s Word and acting upon it.”
