Proverbs chapter 1 and verse 5 says this, “a wise man will hear and increase learning, and a man of understanding will attain wise counsel.”
In second Timothy chapter 2, verse 15 the apostle Paul once exhorted the younger believer to study and to know the Word of God, so he could have strength to withstand the false reasonings sent to subvert his faith. We would do well to listen to this advice today. You cannot live a victorious Christian life on emotions or even on other people’s opinions about what God has said or is saying. You must study and know His words for yourself.
Sad to say, but many people in the church today no longer faithfully read their Bibles. Honestly folks, I fear for their future. Let’s pray for them, and remember it’s time to pray.
