Proper attitude towards God's word, continued

Sometimes we are prone to doubt the word of God, but that is Satan's way of discouraging us, and we don't need his advice on anything, we need to cling to God's word and His word only, not take men's advice either because if it is against God's word it is coming from Satan no matter where or how we become doubtful, it is always Satan's plan to destroy us and discourage us.  So here are some more Counsel from God's word.

Acts 11:1  "Not the Apostles and brethren who were in Judea heard that the Gentiles had also received the word of God."  That is what we are to do.  To receive the word of God as truth and apply it to our lives day by day.

Acts 13:48 "Now when the Gentiles heard this they were glad and glorified the word of God."  We are to do the same, give God glory when we learn new things that can bring us salvation.

Acts 18:11  "And he continued there a year and six months, teaching the word of God among them."
When we learn new things, it is a good thing to teach it to others, even in our simple way it brings God glory.

Psalms 119:148  "My eyes are awake through the night watch, that I may meditate on Your word."  When we wake up in the night and can't go back to sleep, this is good advice and also we can spend the time praying for others and for ourselves.

2 Timothy 2:15  "Be diligent to present yourselves approved of God,a worker who does not need to be ashamed rightly diving the word of God."  I pray that I am rightly dividing the word of God to you each day.  I don't want to stand before Him in the judgment ashamed.  I pray and ask His guidance as I study His word and for wisdom to give what I have learned to you in the right way.  I want to be accurate in all that I post.

James 1:22 -24  "But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.  For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; for he observes himself, goes away and immediately forgets what kind of man he was"  We must be a doer of His word and not just read and forget what we read or hear and forget what we heard.  We must ask Him to put it in on our hearts to do and not forget to do.

I hope you don't mind if I recap each study, it helps me remember what we went through and not to forget.  So today we learned that we are to receive His word and glorify God when we receive it.  We can teach what we are learning to others, and when we awake in the night, it gives us time to meditate on what we have learned and we can also  pray during that time too.  We need to rightly divide the word to be approved of God. and be doers of that word.  I want to please God by being a doer of His word, don't you?  Tomorrow we will study some warnings given about God's word.  Very important.
