Living By His Every Word
I realized that if I live by God's every word, I will easily defeat the enemy as James 4:7 says. I am beginning to understand what it means to live "by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD" (Deuteronomy 8:3). I have realized that I cannot interpret Scripture, but that I must compare "spiritual things with spiritual" (I Corinth 2:15). The things I live by must not be of my own wisdom but by that which the Holy Spirit teaches (I Corinth. 2:15). I know that if I ever have a problem I must not resolve to physical solutions, but to Scripture as Jesus said in John 6:63, "it is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, the are spirit, and they are life." I know that wisdom should be desired, and that only God can give me wisdom and understanding (Proverbs 2, James 1:5). I have also learned that to be wise is to be pure, peaceable, gentle, easy to be intreated, full of good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy (James 3:17). I have learned that the Bible is the only self-defining book. I mean that every single word is defined in it. Checkout avpublications.com for more info. I encourage you today to "trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding (Proverbs 3:5-6). " Apply your heart to wisdom (Proverbs 2). Cry out for wisdom more than anything, even more than 10000 trillion dollars, and then you will understand the fear of God (Proverbs 2). Experience the easy yolk of Christ by desirinig His word and allowing it to enter into your heart.
