RHAPSODY OF REALITIES SUNDAY, 2ND APRIL.
WORKING THE WORD.
For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart (Hebrews 4:12).
It makes no difference your present level in life; perhaps your current situation is so dire that you no longer see a way out. I have good news for you: the Word of God can lift you from where you are to your next level of glory and success. Read our opening verse again and see part of the ministry, ability, and efficacy of the Word in your life. The Word can build your faith strong; it can build every aspect of your life.
But the question is: how do you make the Word work for you? It’s by personalising it and responding accordingly. Personalising it means you take it as God’s Word to you personally, and then act accordingly.
The Word won’t work for you just because it exists in the pages of the Bible; you have to work it out. Philippians 2:12 says to work out your own salvation; use the Word to create and sustain your victories in life. Every time you study, hear or meditate on the Word, take possession of it; apprehend it and make it yours, and it’ll become a force in your spirit that causes you to speak and act accordingly.
Once you’ve taken a hold of it and allowed it to settle in your spirit, something powerful will result, as seen in the very words of the Lord Jesus: “If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you” (John 15:7). This means that with the Word in you, you can ask anything you want, and even if it doesn’t exist, it’ll be created! The Word in your mouth is a creative force; it’ll bring forth miracles. Hallelujah!
Dear Father, I thank you for giving me your Word as the material to build my faith strong, and cause circumstances to conform to the life of glory and limitless potentials I have in Christ. I thank you for your blessings and my glorious inheritance in Christ, which I blissfully enjoy, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
1 Timothy 4:15 Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all.
