Proverbs 30:5-6 (HCSB)
“5 Every word of God is pure; He is a shield to those who take refuge in Him. 6 Don’t add to His words, or He will rebuke you, and you will be proved a liar.”
This passage also reminds me of Psalm 91:2, “I will say to the Lord, My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” We can rest on the fact that trusting in God and believing that His Word is true places us securely under His wing. Where else would you rather be? I find that spending more time in God’s perfect Word and communicating with Him shields me from fiery darts of the enemy. We are not exempt from trials, temptations, or struggles in this life; however His promise clearly affirms His protection for those who seek His refuge.
As we dig daily in His Word, let us guard our hearts and minds with the perfect Word of God – the living Word! We must be alert to false teachings especially those that add or take away from the pure Word. In our current American culture, I strongly believe this is one of the Christian’s greatest battles. We must be strong students of God’s Word rebuking any false teaching or lie. The evil one is deceptive and will attempt to draw you away by believing the world’s interpretation of God’s Word – Be Alert!
