IN TIMES LIKE THESE…
Kansas City, Kansas
When there is such a flood of satanically inspired lies and deception. Jesus speaking to the Jews addressed this in John 8:44 “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie he speaketh of his own; for he is a liar and the father of it.” Satan is a liar and the father of lies.
Recognizing this by the Word of God; we need to seek the guidance of the Holy Spirit. John 16:13-14 “Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.”
Again, seek His guidance into that which is true and good because wisdom shows us in Proverbs 16:25 “There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.” And Proverbs 10:29 “The way of the Lord is strength to the upright: but destruction shall be to the workers of iniquity.”
The prophet Jeremiah knew this and said, “Oh Lord, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps. O Lord, correct me, but with judgment; not in thine anger, lest thou bring me to nothing.” Jeremiah 10:23-24. In the book of Proverbs 3:5-6 there is a beautiful promise “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct they paths.”
Time spent in God’s Word under the love and guidance of the blessed Holy Spirit is time well spent. Luke 10:38-42 “Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus’ feet, and heard his word. But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me. And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things: But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.”
So we would be the wiser in praying the prayer in Psalm 90:12 “So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom”
