MESSAGE: Dr. Charles Stanley 20 August 2022 In Touch Daily Devotional
Turn to God’s Word first.
Each day we let either the world or God’s Word shape our thoughts. Although most of us are quick to say we believe the Bible, at times our actions indicate we’re influenced by something else.
Where do you go when you want advice about a big decision or lifestyle choice? Websites, blogs, and the media offer a wealth of information that can be either beneficial or harmful.
Coworkers, family, and friends also provide counsel, but do they rely on worldly reasoning or godly wisdom? The best resource for true guidance is Scripture, but we often rely on human intelligence and personal preferences instead.
Hebrews 4:12 describes God’s Word as “living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword” and piercing into the deepest parts of the soul.
Those who are reluctant to surrender to its penetrating work essentially reject the Lord by their refusal to listen and obey. But those willing to accept Scripture’s reproof, correction, and wise “nourishment” will discover the riches of a life of faith.
Letting the Word be your guide requires costly changes in thought, attitude, and behavior. Yet any adjustments or disciplines that produce godliness also result in eternal profit. And it all starts with going to Scripture for direction.
