Daily Bible Study with Purpose
1 John 4:1 Beloved, do not believe every spirit but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.


The medical field of scientists and doctors have discovered that immunizations are essential to protect our bodies from various infectious diseases such as polio, influenza, pneumonia, shingles, and many more.

We are in a severe pandemic with the Covid-19 Coronavirus. Because of past experimentations by our government and medical personnel, groups of people, especially Black Americans, are fearful of taking the vaccine recently introduced with thoughts of how the Tuskegee Experiment was conducted. That ‘great’ moment in American history caused an indoctrination of distrust.

God’s Word, The Holy Bible, teaches us not to put our trust in man but to
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your understanding; In all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6

We should remember 2 Timothy 1:7, “God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power, love, and self-control.” God is sovereign, and when we indoctrinate our being in Him by placing our faith in His Divine plan, we can trust Him to direct our decisions and be confident in Him.

Let us pray: Lord, we trust you and know that you have gifted scientists, doctors, lawyers, leaders, teachers, and others according to your plan. How they use or exploit that knowledge makes them accountable to you. We trust you with our life to be lived for your glory in obedience to you. We love you, Lord. Thank you for your Holy Spirit. Amen.
