God’s Word is absolutely trustworthy and dependable. The entire Scriptures chronicle everything that’s involved in His redemptive work, the implication of all that He accomplished on our behalf, and the testament sealed in His death. Not only are these accounts authentic and trustworthy as communicated to us in the Scriptures, they were delivered to us to live by.
For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eye witnesses of his majesty (2Peter 1:16).
For example, Peter refers to the narrative in Matthew 17 in his second epistle. He explained how they (Peter, James and John) were “eyewitnesses of His majesty”—the transfiguration, where Jesus’ face shone like the sun, and His clothes dazzled. They saw Moses and Elijah appear on the mount.
They even heard a voice from heaven which said, “…This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him” (Matthew 17:5).
Hold on to God’s Word; it’s a more sure word than our experiences! Imagine if you had symptoms of pains or sickness in your body, don’t budge. Use the word against it. The Word is absolutely trustworthy and dependable.
