12 Weeks of Prayer Week 9 Day 3
Denying the Word of God is Denying Ourselves the Truth of God
By Justin N. Citro
Commit thy works unto the Lord, and thy thoughts shall be established.
When we start to deny the Bible, we are denying ourselves the truth of God's Word in our lives. There are some questions that must be raised when it comes to the choice of denying what God says in His Word. The Bible for generations has been a light unto the path of many as well as a beacon of truth when it comes to defending our faith against the evil of this world. We as Christians more than ever need to stand firm on the Bible before our very souls get lost to the things of this world. Denial of the Word is a hard subject to talk about in a world where our own pastors are afraid to even open their Bibles to preach the entire counsel of God found in the Scriptures, and that is also a denial of the Word of God. If the "man of God" is afraid to even open the Scriptures, is not that denial of the Word of God? If we as believers don't stand for the Word, why are we even Christians? How can we call ourselves followers of Christ if we are going to deny the words found in the pages of the Scriptures? We as followers of the Word must be ready to take a stand for the Word of God even in the midst of battle. It is when we put God first that He will make a way for us! The Bible says in the book of Proverbs 16:3 KJV, "Commit thy works unto the Lord, and thy thoughts shall be established." What King Solomon is saying here is put the Lord first and your foundation is set in the kingdom of God! I stress the importance of putting God first for it is quite easy to fall into this world unless we put our faith wholeheartedly into the Lord. Brothers and Sisters, I encourage you to be wise in your choices and make sure your faith is rooted in the Word of Lord that is our hope in these last days. Make sure you are grounded in the Word of God so that you avoid being deceived. Heavenly Father, I thank You and praise You for this day. Lord, please help me to be rooted in Your Word, and forgive me if I have sinned against Your Word. Forgive if I have denied Your Word. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
