A YEAR IN PRAYER    "Using God's Word to pray"

Does your faith stand on Christ Jesus alone, the Solid Rock, the Way, the Truth, and the Life?

Have you been convinced by supposed "scientific discoveries" that God doesn't exist?

Are you walking into the darkness of the philosophies of this age, trusting them more than you do the word of God?

 

DAY # 220

TODAY’S REQUEST:

THAT WE SHOULD NO LONGER BE CHILDREN,

TOSSED TO AND FRO AND CARRIED ABOUT WITH EVERY WIND OF DOCTRINE

Ephesians 4:14 that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting,
Mark 7:5-9 Then the Pharisees and scribes asked Him, "Why do Your disciples not walk according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashed hands?" 6 He answered and said to them, "Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written: ‘This people honors Me with their lips, But their heart is far from Me. 7 And in vain they worship Me, Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’ 8 "For laying aside the commandment of God, you hold the tradition of men––the washing of pitchers and cups, and many other such things you do." 9 He said to them, "All too well you reject the commandment of God, that you may keep your tradition.
1 Timothy 4:1 Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons,
Hebrews 13:9 Do not be carried about with various and strange doctrines. For it is good that the heart be established by grace, not with foods which have not profited those who have been occupied with them.

 

HOW DO THE SCRIPTURES TELL US TO EXPRESS THIS REQUEST?

PLANTED FIRMLY ON THE DOCTRINES OF CHRIST

Hebrews 5:13 For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe. 14 But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
Colossians 2:16-22 So let no one judge you in food or in drink, or regarding a festival or a new moon or sabbaths, 17 which are a shadow of things to come, but the substance is of Christ. 18 Let no one cheat you of your reward, taking delight in false humility and worship of angels, intruding into those things which he has not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind, 19 and not holding fast to the Head, from whom all the body, nourished and knit together by joints and ligaments, grows with the increase that is from God. 20 Therefore, if you died with Christ from the basic principles of the world, why, as though living in the world, do you subject yourselves to regulations - 21 "Do not touch, do not taste, do not handle," 22 which all concern things which perish with the using––according to the commandments and doctrines of men?
2 Timothy 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers;
Titus 2:1 But as for you, speak the things which are proper for sound doctrine:
