Girl!!!!! If I can tell you anything, it's that you need to cling to the truth of God's word! Let me back up, don't cling to it, ABIDE in it! For when you abide in it, THEN when you need to claim the truth, you KNOW it to cling to!
Let me break it down for you!
The bible says in John 8:31-32 "If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."
What is the truth? The truth is the word of God, nothing else can be truth, only HIS word, and here He is instructing us to ABIDE in His word. If we abide we will KNOW the truth, and that very same truth will set us free. But here's the catch...we won't be set free by what we don't know!
OUCH. That stings a bit, huh sister??
How long do you abide? 2 mins to check it off of your to-do list? 10 mins? What do you consider ABIDING?
For me? Abiding is getting STILL. Still enough to hear His voice and still enough to soak in His word so that I can memorize it. That's right MEMORIZE it. Because it's the truth we KNOW that sets us free, not the truth we don't know! It's as simple as that, guys!
How can we combat the enemy if we don't have the word of the Lord hidden in our hearts? Guys, committing this to memory is VITAL! I actually didn't realize HOW vital until recently, so I thought I would share with you how easy I'm making this for myself and how easy you can do it too!
