IT’S AN INSIDE FORCE!
(“Eat” God’s Word And Be Propelled To Action)
TO THE BIBLE: Psalm 119:103-105
“How sweet are Your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth! Through Your precepts I get understanding; therefore I hate every false way. Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.”
Sandra loved good food, exercise, and also loved cooking too: She would ensure that she got a balanced diet—nourished with the right quantity of carbs, vitamins, minerals, fats and oil etc. as well as fruits and veggies daily. As a result, she grew normally with radiant-looking skin, and she always did better at school than her peers who fed on junk food mostly. Have you ever heard the term “You’re what you eat?” This means that whatever you feed on goes into your body, and becomes a part of your system. In other words, when you eat physical food, it goes into your system, becomes one with your body and does its work, building it and causing growth and maintenance. It’s the same thing with God’s Word in your spirit.
When you “eat” the Word, through study and meditation, the Word goes into your system and becomes one with your spirit! You become the “Word” that you eat. That “Word” becomes an inside force—an energy—that propels you to act accordingly. The Word of God wasn’t given to us just to reveal some things to us about God; the Word of God was given to us to feed on and live by.
Some people only believe the Word; but “believing” isn’t enough; you believe and then act accordingly! You haven’t really believed the Word if you weren’t compelled to act accordingly, because when you believe, you’re compelled to action. We believe to do! In the Old Testament, the Word was to them an outside force. In the New Testament, it’s an inside force. The Word lives in us today; we’re born of the Word, and thus one with the Word. The Word in you will regulate your thoughts and actions, and cause you to walk in righteousness.
The Word of God is my food and my nutrition; I’m growing steadily by the Word into a mature person in Christ. My spirit, soul and every fibre of my being are fully inundated with the living Word of God and I’m led always in victory and triumph, being kept, preserved and nourished by the Word, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
