“How blessed are those who observe His testimonies, Who seek Him with all their heart.”
Psalms 119:2 NASB
Our nation has a problem with allowing God’s Word to penetrate the spirit and soul of his/her life. We are absolutely void of any type of righteousness in God’s sight and filled with much selfishness. Even with the new nature we are void of practical righteousness apart from Him. This is called sin.
Only the Word of God can pierce and separate soul and spirit. It judges the thoughts and intentions of the heart. All is laid bare to God. And upon that premise we will be judged.
The Word of the Living God tells us that without Christ’s living reality we are doomed and left to ourselves. When a people turn away from God and His written Word then that people will find no hope or help. Everything we do or think should be confirmed by the Word.
Woe to a nation that forgets God. Woe to a people that does not apply the whole of God’s Word. When we turn our hearts away from His Word then we turn our lives toward the world, the flesh, and Satan. Unless there is repentance of falling short of God’s full intention in our lives, we hurt ourselves and those around us.
