The Truth of God is Spiritually Sure and Solid
Ephesians 3:17-19 (KJB) That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; 19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
Inspirational memes, stories, sayings, opinions, and quotes may be considered loving, nice and pleasant sounding, but they can be mere ideas and remembrances skillfully crafted by a man. They can occupy a place in our life as idols by filling our time and not our heart because they are not founded upon God’s biblical principles but resting on ideas and reasoning of mankind.
Mere ideas of a man can be used as a replacement for faith, for a season. They can stir up emotions rather than allowing a person to rest in faith placed in God alone. Reasoning can be a weak form of entertainment, a great time waster, a faith replacement, rather than a person simply choosing to stand upon the solid truths and principals of God until a trial comes.
In the end, after facing a trial, faith placed in things of God will always make it through any fire while flimsy and feely replacements not crafted with God’s spiritual solids, will certainly burn, fall apart, flitter, and fade away when based upon things of this world.
Let Truth, love, and authority all found exclusively in the Word of God inspire, direct, and move you as you sojourn in this world rather than resting upon the sinking sand of any opinion or intellectual thinking of a man.
Even the words of well-meaning preachers can occasionally sway left of God’s spiritual center. Following words of a man can be a spiritually dangerous and deadly practice. Seek to be grounded in the truths and promises of God’s Word and able to weed out empty promises, lies, or half-truths formulated in this world.
