A Charge for You...
Will we believe Satan's lies or God's word?
Will we believe God’s promises or our own interpretation of things? Eve looked at the fruit, and it appeared to be good for wisdom. So she believed her senses instead of God’s word.
Cling to God's promises, no matter what fiery darts the enemy shoots at you.
Believe God’s promises even if all creation seems to contradict it. Believe God’s word over your strongest feelings. Of course to believe God’s promises, you must regularly take them in, for “Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.” (Romans 10:17).
So what are you believing about God today?
