Lies, Lies, Lies By Brenda Drake

Have you felt lately a little out of touch with reality?  Almost as if we are living in the twilight-zone.  When I begin to feel like this there is one place that can and does get me grounded and back on track…I go to the Lord in prayer and delve into the Scriptures. A new hope and faith rises up by hearing and heeding the truth and setting aside the many untruths that bombard us in the world with its unbelieving, faithless ways.

Lies, Lies, Lies

Manufactured, mass-produced lies,
Full of deception, behind masks disguised.
Tall tales and tiny innuendoes under the same name,
They are called and marked as a lie just the same.
In the world voices are heard; many things untrue.
They if heeded are meant to pull away in deception or to confuse.
When you are confused and muddled in your thinking,
Then you are sure to make decisions that are stinking.
Train your heart and spirit to hear God’s voice.
It will co-inside with Scripture to help you make the right choice.
Lies, lies, lies everywhere you turn.
There will be even more lies uttered until Jesus returns.
Jesus is the truth, He will show you the way right.
He is the Word God sent to cause your heart delight.
When you obey the Word and heed its direction,
You have the mind of Christ and will not be led astray in deception.

John 14:5
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life:
no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

2 Timothy 3:16-17
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

James 3:14-17
But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth.  This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.  For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.  But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.

Eat the Scriptures By Brenda Drake

As the world hurls more and more hard, unpalatable things for us to consume, the more confused, sick and depressed we become.  Our life it seems is turned upside down and backwards; conflicting with all we have known and trusted as truth. Indeed we are discovering some things we thought were true are not.  There is one measure of truth that is true and right; the Word of God that many refer to both as Jesus and the bible.  Jesus is Truth, Life and The Way.  Jesus is the Word of God that spoke life from the cross to show the way to all who would hear. There is strength in the Word when it is ingested. In it we find sure knowledge of the sad condition of our sinful soul. It tells of the love of the Father who provided through the sacrifice of His Son our redemption, and it spells out the unimaginable love of Jesus that willingly took our sins on His back to bring us to restore our fellowship with a Holy God.  The sweet Holy Spirit makes the Word clear as He teaches, guides, and leads us to our eternal home to forever dwell in one accord with Father, Son and Spirit.

Eat the Scripture

To dine on My Word, is as I wish for you to do
Eat all the Scriptures you can put inside of you
Drink of the waters that quench the thirst you have inside
Never quench the Spirit by not eating right
As the body needs fuel to make it run
The spirit man needs the food that is prepared for him.
He cannot function properly if he does not eat.
He will be defeated and will become weak.
Some children are under-nourished because of lack of trust.
If they would just read the Word they can be and do as they must.
You have not, if you seek not, if you seek you shall find.
All needed armor in every battle of every kind.
You have the choice to be strong or weak.
The more wisdom consumed, the mightier your strength.

1 Peter 2:2
As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:

2 Peter 3:18
But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.
