How does this happen? It begins by rejecting or refusing to know the Bible, God’s Word. This results in being lead astray, and then wrongly justifying the actions taken by saying the word of God is not relevant today, and just too hard to understand and apply. People are quick then to believe the lies told to them by progressive thinkers of today; therefore, they will become deceived.
A deceived person only sees things merely from a human point of view, not from God’s. They do not understand that evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, wickedness, deceit, lustful desires, envy, slander, pride will ruin their life.
Christians must understand that God’s word will work deep within, exposing every hidden motive. When they are in His word they understand that when they are tested through trials and tribulation they will come out as pure as gold. They will know that The Lord controls their destiny. They will trust that when they make plans, God’s purpose will prevail. They will rest in the fact that He will direct their steps, and they will have peace; because they will not try to understand everything along the way; for they know that their Lord will handle the matter.
When His children treasure the bible they will be able to trust Him to do whatever he has planned for their life.
