On yesterday, I posted on Facebook the things we as a people speak that are not scriptural. For years probably decades we have been quoting statements as if they are bible base, when it fact they aren’t. For instance here are a few of the things we have been saying.
Sayings we think are scriptural, when in fact they are not.
1. God helps those who help themselves.
2. Cleanliness is next to godliness.
3. Money is the root of all evil.
4. This too shall pass.
5. Blessed and highly favored
6. God moves in mysterious ways
7. Pride comes before the fall
And though they sound good they are not scriptural. When you go back and look these words up in your concordance you will see that the verses don’t read as what we say.Which makes me think if this is what we have been doing then no wonder we aren’t seeing the power of God move in our lives like we should. No wonder our prayer life is stagnant, no wonder the enemy doesn’t run when we speak, for we are not speaking God’s word. We are speaking what sounds good.
Remember Jesus tells us to not add or take away from His word.
I hear some of you saying right now, it doesn’t matter God knows what you really mean? I’m here to tell you now if you keep on speaking words that are not God’s word you are speaking your own doctrine. Remember Satan knows the word of God and he used it against Eve in the garden. He did it to them do you think he won’t do it to you?
Let’s make sure when we quote scripture that we really are quoting it correctly word for word and not omitting from God’s Word.
Have a Blessed Friday.
