Faith in God’s Word

If you intend to fight the good fight of faith, you must trust the Word of God. The words of men may stir you to action. They may encourage you. But they should never be the final word for your life. The Word of God is light for your path. It is health for your flesh. It is the revealed will of God for your life.

If you value the words of men over the Word of God, you violate His work in your life. You leave yourself open to temptation and deception. As a Christian, your discernment is grounded in the Word of God. Without it to guide your steps, you are vulnerable to demonic attack. The Bible is eternal, and it carries authority and power. It is supernatural and accessible. When you believe the Word—when you are in a position of faith—you are able to act in a wise and courageous manner and respond to the challenges you face in obedience to God’s Word.

You and I are living in a world where spiritual winds are blowing all around us, and we must know which spirits are speaking to us. Is it the Spirit of God, or is it a spirit of deception trying to trap us? We must be alert and wise. God’s Word is a powerful, living tool that helps us try the spirits and brings us to maturity.

Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ: That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive. (Ephesians 4:13&14)

—Ephesians 4:13&14

Anytime someone tries to persuade you to go against the Word of God, ask yourself, “If I listen to this voice and receive it as truth, will it make me a better person? Will it make me more like Jesus?” Instead of listening to those voices, choose to stand on the Word of God, no matter what anyone else says. Act in faith, and your life will be changed for the better.
