Let the word of the Anointed One richly inhabit your lives. With all wisdom teach, counsel, and instruct one another.
When I study Scripture and give it the time and reverence that it deserves, my mind is clear regardless of the circumstances. Pastors and teachers always tell us this, but it's one of those disciplines that you have to try so you can understand.
The wicked prince of the air and your own weaknesses will battle for control of your life and time. You can wage a better battle when you know the Scriptures that rebuke evil.
You can also help your children, friends and family in their time of need when you quote Scriptures that give insight to life's many twists and turns.
Many times when I'm deep in study, God will answer a question I have or provide insight into a topic I've been studying. The deeper I go into Scripture and in my walk with God, the more I understand topics that I failed to grasp before. It's pretty cool.
The words from your mouth
I've found that the Holy Spirit empowers me with the right Scriptures the more I study. I still enjoy 'aha' moments when words roll off my tongue that encourage and bring comfort to others.
Don't let a day go by without searching the Scriptures. You just might learn truths that will change your life and the lives of those you know and love!
