Search the scriptures daily
Text: Acts 17:10-11: And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews. These were more noble than those in Thessalonica in that they received the word with all readiness of mind and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.
Have you ever considered traveling to a new location without your roadmap? Many believers embarked on their day to day journey without consulting their roadmap for living- the scripture.
In our devotional text today, we saw the eagerness of the Bereans to search the scriptures and analyze every information that comes to their ways in light of the Genuity of the word of God.
The world is full of bad news so much that one’s heart can become overwhelmed by a series of news been disseminated on the media and through the internet. But as the children of God, we are not guided by the volume of news around us, but the truth revealed in the word of God.
But until we begin to search the scriptures as a way of life deliberately, the enemies will continue to blindfold us with the bad news flying around, whereas, His word has already given us answers to each of that news before they come to limelight.
Search the scripture for daily living
- It empowers you to live by faith and not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7).
- It reassures you of the benefits you have in Christ, which is not by any means subjected to the news been disseminated by the world.
- When you search the scriptures daily, it sets you on the path of freedom and enables you to live the fullness of life you have been freely given by Christ Jesus (John 8:32).
