It is essential what we believe more – what we say or what God says!

I greet you, dear readers of our column “Daily Word for Spiritual Strength”! According to God’s mighty grace, we have been given the opportunity to feed our hearts daily with the living Word of God. God is light and in Him there is no darkness! Light of the Word of God illuminates and makes us smarter.All this time, we have been talking about the fact that many voices are trying to rule over our lives – the voice of our common sense, the voices of feelings, public opinion, and experts, etc. But we found that only God’s Word and His voice brings us to the true life in abundance, and takes us into God’s plans and will. But the Bible says that God’s will and plans for us are good.
“Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is — His good, pleasing and perfect will.” (Romans 12:2)
But the question is still topical – what we say and what we believe.Often while reading the Bible, we hear ourselves better than we hear God. This is because there are words that we say, and there is Word that He says. It is essential what we believe more – what we say or what God says.
