Hold fast the faithful Word

Hold fast the faithful Word – Titus 1:9

This piece of Scripture expresses what has been resonating in my soul for many months. In a world filled with many voices speaking loudly, and almost all of them speaking forth things that are contrary to the Word of God, how desperately we need to hold fast to the faithful Word of God.

Notice that it is not a faithful word, it is THE faithful Word.

Oh God, help me to cling to the truth of Your Word, casting away all that contradicts the pure message of the gospel. Daily I am bombarded by the world’s messages that attempt to persuade me to believe lies. The only safety for me is to have a heart filled with the Word of God. So fill my heart, Oh God, as I read and study. Fill it with Your precious truth.

The law of Your mouth is better to me than thousands of coins of gold and silver. Psalm 119:72

Oh, how I love Your law! It is my meditation all the day. Psalm 119:97

Your testimonies I have taken as a heritage forever, For they are the rejoicing of my heart Psalm 119:111

Your testimonies, which You have commanded, Are righteous and very faithful. Psalm 119:138

The entirety of Your word is truth, And every one of Your righteous judgments endures forever. Psalm 119:160

Great peace have those who love Your law, And nothing causes them to stumble. Psalm 119:165
