Parents of teens often search bookstores for instruction books on raising teens. While there may not be a book with your child’s name on it, our Creator has provided a Book of Wisdom for you.
Yet the devil wants you to doubt the book that provides the way to a happy life. Satan cast doubt on God’s Word with Eve. “Did God really say…” (Genesis 3:1-4). He misled Eve to believe God was holding out on her and there were no consequences for ignoring His warnings.
This should make us question our doubts instead of questioning the Bible. Satan knows if he can make you doubt the reliability of God’s Word he’s got you.Parents of teens often search bookstores for instruction books on raising teens.

The Bible is God’s tool to a happy and healthy life. Here are some facts worth remembering.
“Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth” (John 17:17, ESV).
“And we also thank God constantly for this, that when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men but as what it really is, the word of God, which is at work in you believers” (1 Thessalonians 2:13, ESV).
God’s timeless truths keep us stable.
Has the changing morality of our society left you questioning what is right? Human philosophies come and go. Biblical wisdom remains pertinent in every generation and culture.
“The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever.” (Isaiah 40:8, ESV, emphasis added).
“So that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes” (Ephesians 4:14, ESV).
God’s Word feeds our faith.
Do you want a vibrant faith that delights God and sustains you through difficult times?
“So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ” (Romans 10:17, ESV).
God’s Word is our offensive weapon against spiritual attacks (Ephesians 6:17).
When tempted in the wilderness, Jesus quoted Scripture to overcome the devil (Matt. 4:1-11). No wonder Satan casts doubt on its power and authority.
God’s Word reveals the source of and solution to our problems.
Scripture is an MRI and skilled surgeon all in one. It also guides us so we can avoid injuries.
“For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart” (Heb. 4:12 ESV)
“Through your precepts I get understanding…Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path” (Psalm 119:104-105, ESV).
God’s Word brings liberty and blessing.
The world calls God’s Word confining. Actually, the opposite is true. It protects us from deception and bondage. It frees us to develop into our best selves.
“But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing” (James 1:25, ESV).
“And his commandments are not burdensome” (1 John 5:3, ESV).
“I say these things while I am still in the world, so that they may have the full measure of my joy within them” (John 17:13, NIV).
