2 Peter 1:19(KJV); We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:
When the Bible refers to God’s Word as the sure word of prophecy, it means that in this life, there is nothing more accurate than the scriptures.
The Greek word used for ‘sure word’ is ‘bebaios’ which is translated to mean, firm, steadfast, enduring and certain. This Word is dependable and sure.
Sometimes, life’s misery is caused by the many opinions we seek outside the Word of God.
For example, a prophet who is not fully aligned to the will of God may reveal that the disease you are suffering from may kill you in three years’ time because that is what he sees in the realm of spirits.
But what does the Word of God see?
It sees you healthy in old age because it says, “With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.”(Psalm 91:16). This is the most accurate account of that situation!
Your friends, colleagues and relatives may have an opinion based on the circumstances you are going through. By these, they may judge you as disqualified from success.
But learn to look at the Word, its record of how you must turn up is the most dependable!

GOLDEN NUGGET: In this life, there is nothing more accurate than the scriptures.
PRAYER: Father, I thank You for the precious gift of Your Word. It is a double edged sword from whom nothing is hidden. I look at all of life’s circumstances through the eyes of the Word. That is always the report I believe, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
