When I read this my first thought was, "This is why it is a must that I, me, Jeannie needs to read my Bible." Before I started reading my Bible there were so many things I thought about God's word that were not ture, because I believe what somebody said when they said first, "The Bible says....." I could be immediately imtimaded because they "knew" and I didn't.
When we read our Bibles for ourselves we are less likely to be deceived...when God's sticks in our head we are even more less likely to be deceived...and when God's word drops down into our hears ...that is when we can really decern the truth... it is there for us to feel the difference in what God's word says from what somebody says that wants to deceive us. We sure don't want to think we knew what the Bible said and find out from Hell that we had it all wrong.
What I do know for sure is that since I have began reading God's word, my life is different, my heart is different, my thoughts are different. I am a changed person, a more forgiving person, a more loving person. I am a person filled with peace and joy. I was once a constant worrier, now I hardly worry at all and when I find myself worring I call on God's word and it goes away. It is so important that we know God's word!! For ourselves!!
