For the Lord is our judge, the Lord is our lawgiver, the Lord is our king; He will save us. - (Isaiah 33:22)

Why is it so imperative that you learn to function by biblical authority? A simple exercise will demonstrate your need.

Take a blank sheet of paper and try to draw a straight line down the middle. What will happen? It will be crooked. I don’t care how steady your hand is, if you try to draw a straight line on your own there’s going to be a curve in that line somewhere.

But now try drawing a straight line with a ruler. Lay a ruler next to your line and draw another line with it.The difference will be obvious.

You get the idea. When you try to live life on your own, it’s going to be crooked. I don’t care how much you try or how straight you are, your life is going to have lumps and bends in it because the best of us can’t live a straight life on our own.

Too many of us in God’s kingdom are trying to live life on our own, and we keep messing up. But if you’ll let the Word of God be your ruler and draw your life according to its standard, you’ll take care of the bumps.

God’s Word is the only authority that will enable us to draw a straight line in our personal life, in our family life, in the church, and in society.There’s only one King in this kingdom, and He has a ruler called His Word.That’s our standard.

Reflection: Are you living life by your own standard or God’s? How are you making sure that you hear, know, and understand God’s Word? How are you training your children (or younger men/women within your circle of influence) in the Word of God?

Your Word is the authority and the guideline I am to use to show me how to live  my life for You. You’ll take care of me as I seek You, and for that—I am truly grateful.
