Today’s word for June 30, 2011


Every word of God is flawless;
he is a shield to those who take refuge in him.
Do not add to his words,
or he will rebuke you and prove you a liar.
Proverbs 30:5-6

Those who have placed their trust in the promises contained in the word of God are first hand witnesses that the word has never disappointed them. The word of God has always proven to be true and trustworthy. A modern version of Scripture says that “every word of God has stood the test of fire.” If something has gone wrong for someone who has put his faith in the word of God, it is likely that the cause of this failure is due to inappropriate attitude or wrong purposes. When the vast majority of people buy a new device, electrical or mechanical, they hardly take a look at the manual of operation thinking that they do not need to read the instructions and warnings in the manual because the operation of the device in question is very simple and well known. There have been many cases in which the incorrect operation of a device has resulted in harm to the user or destruction of the utensil. The same goes for humans. The Bible is the manual operation of man. Those who ignore, intentionally or unintentionally, the instructions compiled in this book for the benefit of mankind end up hurting themselves or those around them.

Do you live your life according to the principles contained in the word of God? Do you consult daily on the Word of God which path to take and what attitude to present toward life? Do you go along with the influences of a world that only seeks to destroy you and your loved ones? You know what the Lord expects of you? Ignoring the decrees and teachings of the Word of God can lead you to material and spiritual ruin. Why ignore the promises that have proven reliable again and again? Do not ignore or twist the meaning of the teachings God has prepared for us and has given us through his trusty word. Doing so involves serious risk. Trust in God and his word and never be disappointed. To God alone be the glory!
