God’s Secret: Disclosing God’s Hidden Truths of the Bible
Chapter: Our Peace (Pages 84-87)
READ Proverbs 8:6-9:
Hear; for I will speak of excellent things; and the opening of my lips shall be right things. For my mouth shall speak truth; and wickedness is an abomination to my lips. All the words of my mouth are in righteousness; there is nothing forward or perverse in them. They are all plain to him that understandeth, and right to them that find knowledge. (Illuminated Bible)
READ 1 John 1:1-5:
That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life; (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;) That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ. And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full. This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. (Illuminated Bible)
As we read the Word of God, we are able to gain understanding as to true wisdom versus the wisdom of the world. We are also able to obtain spiritual energy, which allows us to maintain the course. Without this Jesus energy, we have no way to keep up and fight the battles that we must face. We are to be honest and trustworthy, and to have no deceit within us. We are to follow the path of righteousness and not give in, but sometimes it is hard to find the energy to keep up. So, focus on studying the Word of God and overcoming the opposition. If you give up, you go back to square one, and it can feel like there is no way out. There is always a solution, but we must focus on discovering it in order to achieve that level of holiness. Being ordained into eternal life is what we desire, and that is our way to experience God.
God will bless you, if you seek Him out in every way. He will not let you down! Trust in Jesus to help you find a way out, and to not fall into temptation. He will be your guide and the light unto your path. Do not lose that light, but remain full of it in order to overcome the darkness. Life is not easy, and we know that the closer we get to finding God, the more challenging our lives become. It is not easy, and we must keep ourselves safe. (Be smart) Finding our safety within God is what He desires. He is a fortress and a shelter for those in need. Knowing that God has mercy is also our way of finding peace. God’s peace is what we desire. Everyone faces various problems in their lives, and we must deal with them in a way that pleases Him. However, that is not always easy. We must fight hard to win this battle between good and evil. We must give it all that we have— our hearts and souls.
