All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right – 2 Timothy 3:16 NLT.
Our information comes from social media and the news. We are so dependent on world news to keep us abreast of what’s happening around us. If today you heard that the President died in a plane crash you would believe it without hesitation. You would probably call a friend to inform them (not to confirm if it’s true or not) about the news, because you have to spread the news. It’s the truth so you have to share it because you believe it. It’s authenticity is never in doubt because it’s the news (they never lie).
It’s funny how God’s word does not invoke the same passionate response. When God speaks you have to authenticate if it is Him speaking before you can act on His instructions. Doubt clouds your mind and you don’t share His word with the same vigor as you would world news. We “know” Scripture is God-inspired and it’s the very words of our Creator. We believe it with our whole hearts and are willing to die for it, willing to spread and share it with everyone: Or do we?
Jeremiah 29:11 and Ephesians 1:11 attest to the will of God for our lives. He says He has plans to prosper us, and not to harm us. He also says He works out everything in perfect conformity with his will and purpose. So if He intends to prosper us and to work out everything for us then we know our future is in good hands. If all things work for our good then there is no room for anxiety or doubt (Romans 8:28).
Or maybe it should be written on Daily Sun or The Star so we can believe it, because it’s authenticity is not in doubt. Zacharias (Luke 1:5-25) prayed for a child yet when God spoke to him about his son he did not believe. He even asked the angel how he can believe it because he is old. “Therefore, we never stop thanking God that when you received his message from us, you didn’t think of our words as mere human ideas. You accepted what we said as the very word of God, which of course, it is. And this word continues to work in you who believe,” 1 Thessalonians 2:13. When are we going to believe His word?
