Christian Devotional about being strong in what we believe
"...So then, we may no longer be children, tossed [like
ships] to and fro between chance gusts of teaching and
wavering with every changing wind of doctrine, [the
prey of] the cunning and cleverness of unscrupulous men,
[gamblers engaged] in every shifting form of trickery
in inventing errors to mislead..." - Ephesians 4: 14 (AMP)
This can only happen if we haven't a firm grip on what
we believe. When a sudden gust of wind comes it rips it
out of our hands and carries it away.
We need to have a solid foundation to stand on and to
build upon. That foundation is our faith in Christ and
the word of God. We need to have it embedded into us. We
need to be filled with the Holy Spirit so we will recognise
truth from error. The Holy Spirit reveals truth to us, but
we need to be in tune to hear. Sometimes we do hear the
still, small voice, but because of the outward circumstances
or pressure we choose not to listen. Not listening can lead
to us being swept away by other teachings, or giving in to
the enticement of the world. We become prey for the enemy.
When we waver, we become easy prey
And the changing wind of doctrine, leads us astray.
