When the words we hear tear us down, the best response is the Word of God. The Bible calls us to meditate on the Word day and night. It helps us address our thinking and change our thought patterns to better align with God's truth. It tells us truths about ourselves and about the Lord. The Word is one way to fellowship with God, to spend time with Him, and to cultivate a deeper relationship with Him.
When we face trials and challenges of any kind, we can turn to the Word for guidance and advice. It soothes and encourages. It offers hope and assurance. It helps us fight back against destructive thoughts and obtain victory in Christ.
Are you meditating on the Word?
2 Timothy 3: 16-17
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
