All these things are excellent help. But there is only one and only compass that will tell us where we are, where we are heading, and how to live in the present. This compass is the Bible.
Whenever there is confusion or uncertainty, coming back to the Bible points us in the right direction and grounds us on the truth.
When we base our thoughts around it, God is revealed. No longer do we have to be swayed by clever arguments or doubtful thoughts or impossible situations. Instead, we can be sure that God's word is certain and solid, and so becomes our lives as we build on His Word!
For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. (Hebrews 4:12 NIV)
