What we think, believe, declare and intend about God’s Word will impact our actions which determine our reality. This reality will determine what our relationship with the God who is revealed in these pages is like. How we perceive the quality and closeness of the exchange of communication between our self and God is revealed here.
God divulges His character, His love and His desire to be reconciled to us in His Word. He demonstrates this through the promise of His Son, the sacrifice of Jesus on the Cross of Calvary and His call and commitment for us to say YES to the relationship with Him.
The Scriptures are the foundation upon which our faith is based and our life is to be lived out. The question that must be addressed is whether we will model our faith upon what we know of God’s faith. Is our faith impacting our character in ways which reveal God’s presence, holiness and power within us?
Are we willing to learn and willing and to change how we live our lives to align with God’s Word? Proverbs 1:7 tells us, “The reverence for Yahweh is the beginning of knowledge, but the perverse despise wisdom and discipline.” The literal translation of Job 28:28 declares, “God said to humanity, ‘The worshipful submission, reverential awe, and obedient respect to the Lord is this: wisdom. And to turn from evil is understanding.’”
The Bible reveals the holy foundation upon which our faith must rest. Holy thoughts, beliefs, declarations, and intentions are not dull, boring and archaic. They demonstrate the power and quality of true freedom and life God desire for us to have. Will you build your life on a solid foundation. Will your faith demonstrate this to be your reality?
