Oh Lord, I pray that Your words will become the norm when it comes to our beliefs. Help every person who says they are for You to lay down their own beliefs, in order to learn from You and You alone. Inwardly, our flesh wants to take the reigns and not let You do the work. This causes us to develop some very strange beliefs about You and not what You desire for us. Lord, I have seen many people make up a God in their own eyes. A God that suits their own beliefs, in order to continue living the same sinful lifestyle that they have always lived. To have their conscience seared and their false beliefs become known is not what most people want. They would rather live and die believing in something than to know Your will for their lives. This is so dangerous, God. Do people really want to jeopardize their salvation because of man-made beliefs they developed in this lifetime? How is it that people have strayed so far from reading the Bible, that what other people say is now more important? Truly, there is a drought when it comes to Your words in scripture. The hunger and thirst for Your words are missing in people’s lives. This can all change if people turned to You in faith. I love You, Lord. I believe in You, Jesus. Amen.
