2 John 1:9
"Anyone who runs ahead and does not continue in the teaching of Christ does not have God; whoever continues in the teaching has both the Father and the Son." NIV
"Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son." KJV
How many of us get so caught up in the things that are happening in our daily lives that we fail to let the Word of God rule our hearts? Instead, we try to help God out or just take matters into our own hands. When we do that we show that we do not trust God, nor are we walking in the Spirit of God. If we get involved wholeheartedly in the Word of God and walk according to it's ways, we will find our lives much more peaceful and encouraged. Knowing God is in control and His timing and ways of working things out are the only way to true communion and peace with Him.
Heavenly Father, forgive us when we try to take care of our issues and problems in our own inadequate ways. We long to continue in Your Word and walk in the ways It teaches. Help us to stay in communion with You so that we will stand on Your Word, strong and ready to let You complete Your work in us and for us. In Christ's name we pray, Amen.
