So I started looking deeper into scripture because I really want to strengthen my relationship with God. I have been convicted that I need a more consistent prayer life & to be more persistent in my walk. When I started to break scripture down using the MySword bible app, I was amazed at how much more there is to learn. I had to chuckle after I read this verse and saw how “evil one” was broke down. The accuracy!
Verse studying: We know [with confidence] that anyone born of God does not habitually sin; but He (Jesus) who was born of God [carefully] keeps and protects him, and the evil one does not touch him.-1 JOHN 5:18 AMP
-full of labours, annoyances, hardships -pressed and harassed by labours. -bringing toils, annoyances, perils; of a time full of peril to Christian faith and steadfastness; causing pain and trouble. – bad, of a bad nature or condition. -in a physical sense: diseased or blind. -in an ethical sense: evil wicked, bad
I am thankful have such a loving father to protect me from all of the above. I challenge you to not just read scripture, but to really study it, and after you’re done studying The Word, meditate on it, and after that apply it to your everyday life. I am thankful to have brothers and sisters of Christ to hold me accountable. The truth may hurt sometimes, but it’s exactly what we need to hear to strengthen our relationship with God.
