Sunday I filled the pulpit for a local Pastor. I preached a message on obedience. Part of that message included being obedient to the Word of God. Today’s devotional deals with walking by the rule of the Word of God.
Enjoy and be challenged.
He who walks by Scripture rule
“How can a young man keep his way pure? By living according to Your Word.” Psalm 119:9
“I have hidden Your Word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.” Psalm 119:11
If you would not be outwitted by any of Satan’s evil schemes, then walk by the rule of the Word of God.
He who walks by Scripture rule, walks most safely.
He who walks by Scripture rule, walks most honorably.
He who walks by Scripture rule, walks most sweetly.
When men throw off the Word, then God throws them off–and then Satan takes them by the hand, and leads them into snares at his pleasure.
He who thinks himself too good to be ruled by the Word, will be found too bad to be owned by God; and if God does not, or will not own him–then Satan will by his stratagems overthrow him. Those who walk by Scripture rule, shall be kept in the hour of temptation.
“Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on His law he meditates day and night.” Psalm 1:1-2
“Sanctify them by the truth; Your Word is truth.” John 17:17
