Know that you know Godís Word

Do you know what God’s Word says about money? About work and rest and food? How about what it says about womanhood?

In this video, Kay Arthur (who’s speaking at the final True Woman ’10 Conference next week in Fort Worth, Texas!) encourages you to know what the Word of God says about these areas—and so many more. In her words, 

“We need to study for ourselves what the Word of God has to say so we know that we know that this is what God says.” 

If we don’t, the results are disastrous. 

So, how about it? How well do you know God’s Word? From where are you taking your cues for how you live each day? Can I encourage you to turn off the TV, leave your endless to-do list on the counter, and get serious about setting aside time to really feed on God’s Word? 

Today, I’m joining Jesus in asking God the Father to sanctify us by the truth . . . the truth found in the Word of God:   

“Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth” (John 17:17).

  1. Amen to that...I thank God for His Word. It is truly an anchor in troubled times.

    My pastor related to us a story recently about when His ministry changed for the better. He told us that he was in his study and began to prepare for the messages he was going to preach, the Lord spoke to Him and said "Read it for yourself". He was kind of stunned at first but the Lord allowed him to realize that He has been studying and preparing to preach to other people but had never really studied just for himself. He said when he did that, it changed his life and ministry. He was a Christian and loved the Lord dearly but He was serving out of duty and not our of devotion and now, He is 87 years old and one of the most positive, faith-full men that I know. He acts like he's about 30.

  3. I am thankful for Kay Arthur's ministry. For many years I have been part of the precept Bible study at our church. Currently we are studying the book of Jeremiah. It is a book that relates to our time.

    This is what the Lord says: "Stand at the crossroads and look;
    ask for the ancient paths,
    ask where the good way is, and walk in it,
    and you will find rest for your souls. Jeremiah 6:16

  4. Hi Paula,

    Thank you for that edifying video from Kay Arthur. Amen to what she said; it is so true.

    Praise the Lord for the plumbline of His Word and for His help in finding our way back to Biblical womanhood. Praise the Lord for this ministry (ROH and TW).

    BTW, I loved Jodi's testimony about her pastor above! It so blesses me to see elderly people, still on fire for the Lord, still energized by His Word.

    Psalm 119:105 (KJV)

    Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

    In His love,
