The Ultimate Anvil - Saturday, July 16th 2016
"For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us."
It has been said that the Bible is an anvil that's worn out many a skeptic's hammer. This means that what the Bible says is completely true and unchanging. Let's consider what that means for a moment.
It means our sins can be forgiven:
Ephesians 1:7 "In [Christ] we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace" NKJV
It means we can become children of God:
John 1:12 "But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name:" NKJV
It means we can one day live in heaven forever:
John 14:2 "In My Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you." NKJV
These things and more are true for those who know Jesus as Savior. If you have trusted in Jesus, then read His Word and trust in these amazing promises. These are promises of love, joy and peace in this life and the next. The world will try and cause you to doubt the Truth of God's Word, but throughout history, the Bible has remained unmoving. Trust in it and find rest for your soul.
Life Lesson: Jesus and the Bible are both completely reliable and trustworthy.
I am so thankful for the many promises found in Your Word. Help me take each one to heart and to allow Your Truths to change me. Protect me from the fears and doubts that can cloud my thinking, and give me boldness to stand on Your Word and to share it with others. In Jesus' name, amen.
Living to tell what He died to say,
