Verse of the Week: Isaiah 55:11 “So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.”
Encouraging Thought: God keeps His word; He cannot lie (Titus 1:2). Whatever He says will come to pass. Numbers 23:19 says, “God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?” God’s Word is all true.
Now Jesus is the Word (John 1:1,14), and in John 14:6 Christ said, “I am the…Truth…” We can trust the Truth. Therefore, we can trust God’s Word, from Genesis to Revelation because it is all true. There are no mistakes, no errors, no contradictions in the King James Version of the Bible. It was inspired of God (II Timothy 3:16) and divinely preserved down through the centuries to maintain the pure and holy truth of God’s Word. (Unfortunately, all other versions cannot make the same claim because man reworded Scripture to his liking. So while all the modern versions may contain the Word of God, the KJV is the Word of God.) Romans 3:4 says, “…let God be true, but every man a liar…” So in today’s society where we no longer know who to believer or what is true, especially from the media, know for certainty that you will always find the complete and total truth in the King James Bible.
Words of Wisdom: God’s words all have a divine purpose. II Timothy 3:16-17 say, “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.” Scripture is God’s written word, intended to give us sound doctrine as well as reproof, correction, and instruction in righteousness. God desires that His children follow in His holy footsteps. I Peter 1:15-16 say, “But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.” God doesn’t just command us to be holy, but He tells us in His word how to live a holy lifestyle – a lifestyle pleasing to Him.
Matthew 12:36-37 say, “But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.” God doesn’t make idle (or worthless) threats like we do. His words are not empty. Hebrews 4:12 says, “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” Unlike our words, which can often be empty and meaningless, God’s Word is powerful and it will accomplish God’s divine purpose.
