Psalm 17:4 Concerning the works of men, by the word of thy lips I have kept me from the paths of the destroyer.
What a recommendation for getting into His Word and getting His Word into you! Men would mess you up. The destroyer is just down that path.
How can you keep your life straight and safe? Notice he says by the word of they lips, by what God said I am kept from the paths of the destroyer.
Do you wonder how you can protect your marriage in such a way that the destroyer can’t get in? Do you wonder how to keep your children from getting messed up by sin?
There is nothing magic about the Bible. You can wear it around your neck or put it on the dash of your car but it will do nothing for you. But if you will read it and do it then God will direct your path and keep you from the destroyer.
Do you remember that the thief comes to steal, kill, and destroy-that is the devil John 10:10! God has words that changes lives. He has words that that will keep you safe, secure, happy, and successful, spiritually!
I have a suggestion. Let’s get to the verse. Do you listen to His Words? Do you seek God’s will? Do you listen to learn what to do!
I want you to be able to say; though I lived among men that gave bad advice and in a world that so many got hurt I was able to avoid the paths of the destroyer.
God’s Word will make a difference in your life! Get under sound of Bible preaching! Read the Bible. Listen and apply. God’s word will keep you from the paths that would destroy you or get you destroyed.
