LET THE WORD WORK IN YOU – Pastor Chris
Thursday, April 21, 2022
The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple (Psalm 19:7).
Your personal growth as a Christian is non-negotiable. And you can only grow and become more effective in the things of God by consciously making up your mind to study, meditate and live by God’s Word. The Word of God builds you; it empowers, inspires, uplifts, motivates and gives you clarity of purpose.
With that clarity of purpose, you’re definite and focused on the steps you’re to take in fulfilling your God-given destiny. God already planned the course and direction of your life; everything is programmed inside you. He did the programming through His Word. That’s why the Word is so important in our lives.
2 Timothy 3:16-17 AMPC says, “Every Scripture is God-breathed (given by His inspiration) and profitable… So that the man of God may be complete and proficient, well fitted and thoroughly equipped for every good work.” It’s impossible for anyone whose life is regulated and propelled by the Word to fail or be disadvantaged. Living by the Word makes you an absolute success: “This Book of the Law shall not depart out of your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, that you may observe and do according to all that is written in it. For then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall deal wisely and have good success” (Joshua 1:8 AMPC).
Study and know the Scriptures for yourself. 2 Timothy 2:15 says, “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” When you study the Word meditatively, the Holy Spirit illuminates your spirit with amazing truths that’ll culture your mind in the direction of consistent growth, progress and prosperity.
The Word of God is where the glory is. That glory constantly increases in your life as you meditate on the Word. This is the reason some Christians have more glory than others; it’s about yielding to, and living the Word.
The Word of God in me programmes me to be an absolute success in life; it propels, empowers, inspires, uplifts, motivates and gives me clarity of purpose. Thank you Lord, for guiding me into all truth, teaching me to make the right choices and decisions that are consistent with your perfect will for me. My life is regulated and propelled by the Word; therefore, I’ll always win. Hallelujah!
