God’s Word is Truth!

I, the Lord, am the one who sends storm clouds and showers of rain to make fields produce. So when the crops need rain, you should pray to me.
You can't believe idols and fortunetellers, or depend on the hope you receive from witchcraft and interpreters of dreams. But you have tried all of these, and now you are like sheep without a shepherd.
I, the Lord All-Powerful, am fiercely angry with you leaders, and I will punish you. I care for my people, the nation of Judah, and I will change this flock of sheep into charging war horses.
From this flock will come leaders who will be strong like cornerstones and tent pegs and weapons of war.
They will join in the fighting, and together they will trample their enemies like mud. They will fight, because I, the Lord, will be on their side. And they will crush the enemy cavalry.

Zechariah 10:1-5

Many people think that Freedom is the right to "run out into the street and be hit by a car." Men do not fight and die for the right of other people to commit suicide! It just doesn't make sense for me to give up my life for your right to destroy yourself!

Freedom without Truth becomes chaos and foolishness! Freedom of religion originally meant that you would be free to worship God according to your own understanding of His Word and not have someone else tell you how to do it. Nowhere in the Bible does God support man's right to worship idols! But that is what we have changed freedom of religion to mean.

The second of the ten commandments clearly warns all men against worshiping any other god! God is not politically correct. He is totally against "freedom of religion" as defined by our 21 century culture.

Satan is in the business of redefining words and giving them meanings that are not Biblical. He has changed "love" into lust, "marriage" into adultery, and "freedom of religion" into idolatry. That is what Satan did in the Garden of Eden when he redefined God's command for Adam and Eve not to eat of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.

So the challenge for me today is this: Am I believing what God has said about everything in my life and in the world around me, or am I redefining those things according to the desire of Satan? The essence of spiritual warfare is living according to God's view of the world where Satan is continually changing the mile markers on the road of life!

"Lord Jesus, help me to define everything in life according to Your Word! Give me the courage to stand against Satan and his lies about Your Truth! Only You are God and Your Word is Truth. And Your Truth lasts forever. Amen."
