A-1 - Encouraged by What You Read?

With so many people and influences trying to mold us into their version of “truth,” how are we to withstand their pressures and continue to reflect the light of Christ? We need to lean on the Word of God. Paul said, “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:16-17).

Whatever encounters we face with the ungodly, we can find wisdom and guidance and comfort in the Bible. When we share the Good News, the Bible will equip us with the Truth. When we experience rejection, the Word of God will comfort and soothe our wounds. When we fear persecution, God’s promises will give us the strength to overcome our anxieties. When we begin to succumb to the world’s influence, the Word of God will transform and renew our minds.

Through God’s Word we will find the encouragement we need to continue following Him in faith and obedience, even when the world pressures us to conform.

Prayer: God, thank You for Your Word, which provides the comfort and encouragement I need when faced with trials and persecution. Help me to spend more time in Your Word so that I will be able to withstand the pressures of this world. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.

“As for God, his way is perfect: The Lord’s word is flawless; he shields all who take refuge in him” (Psalm 18:30).
