Isaiah 55:8-9 (NKJV) it testifies that God's ways and thoughts are not like ours, but His ways and thoughts are higher. Thank goodness!!!! Remember, there is only one living perfect God, and none like Him. He knows the beginning from the end, He knows all, and sees all. As a believer, we are charged to have full faith and trust in God's ways, but as we know this is not always the case. Especially when times get tough. God never promised His ways are easy, but He did say His ways will lead to life.
Today, we are bombarded with words and information. They come in forms of music, movies, social media, etc. But when you peel back the surface, whose voice is truly behind what you are receiving? Is it inspired by God or is it a distraction?
The words we speak can and do impart life or death. Have you ever gotten in trouble because of something you said? The Bible states that out of the heart the mouth speaks, so what's influencing your heart? Whose voices are you listening to? What are you allowing to shape your heart? What are the words you're choosing to speak? It is a choice.
In life we all have issues and face problems. Some because of our own personal choices, and other times due to spiritual matters out of our control. We have to have the courage to identify and face them, and allow Jesus to save us and set us free.
It's vital to know who God is, and to have relationship with Him. In this series, we learn about the character of God, salvation, spiritual gifts and anointings, the fruit of the Spirit, and praying in tongues.
