ASSUMPTION 4

KEY SCRIPTURE: Titus 1:15 KJV” Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.”

 A life of assuming things can result in so many negative tendencies. Marriage partners could be wrongly accused and the pain of lack of trust can be so bad.

On many occasions it becomes irreparable. This can lead to depression or divorce. Some parents, are always at the throat of their teenage sons or daughters, suspecting them, of one fault or the other. These accusations may proceed from baseless assumptions. Assumptions can cause you to lose your answer from God, because you have a wrong anticipation of how God should answer you. Many have lived in certain error for a rather long time, because they just assumed things was as they perceived them to be. How can one stop these negative tendencies of assuming matters.?

One can avoid the errors of negative impacts of assumption by deciding to live and act always in line with the scriptures. Walking by God’s word would grant you wisdom such that you would continually act rightly. Our key scripture shows that the man who has a pure conscience would judge everything as pure.  An impure mind, would interpret everything from an impure outlook.  This is just like a man in a blue spectacle, he would see everything blue. Always maintain a pure mind. A pure mind is one who trusts God in all situations.

FEAR can create so much assumptions about lots of issues. The answer to this is faith in God.  Now faith is not by human reasoning but a positive   state of your heart towards God. Decide to believe God’s word. Act on the word every time. This is wisdom.  Psalms 119:45 KJV “And I will walk at liberty: for I seek thy precepts”. The word is the perfect law of liberty that keeps us from wrong.  Pro 9:10 KJV” The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding”. Wisdom is always a function of understanding. Understanding proceeds from the knowledge of God. Seek to know the Lord in an intimate way, through constant fellowship and obedience to the voice of His Spirit.

PRAYER

Thank you, father, for your word, which is lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path. By your word my feet are kept from stumbling. The impact of my life is constantly positive. I am grateful for your Spirit who directs my actions rightly always.
