More Than Bread Devotional for 4/11/12

28 Let the prophet who has a dream tell the dream, but let him who has my word speak my word faithfully. What has straw in common with wheat? declares the Lord. 29 Is not my word like fire, declares the Lord, and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?  – Jeremiah 23:28-29

Many people today are looking for a “fresh vision” from the Lord or some kind of dream or sign from the Lord.  In doing so, they leave themselves open to being deceived by those who can sound good and make a persuasive or fantastic picture of what they want people to believe.  Yet, God’s Word is to be held in higher esteem at all times.  Any vision or dream should be measured against the truth of God’s Word.  His Word will act as a hammer to shatter the false illusions of those who speak falsely in his name.  Don’t buy into the dreams and visions if they are not in line with the truth of the Word that we already have.  That Word is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword and it comes down as a hammer on all those who would pervert it or try to change it.
