“For no word from God will ever fail.” Luke 1:37
Do you read the Bible for information or inspiration? Is your goal to study the Word, learn facts about God, or to know God? If you are a serious student of Scripture you will encounter Christ in your search for truth. The word of God is a hammer that chisels pride from your heart, a fire that brands truth into your brain, and a sword that slices ego from your soul. Watch for a word from God, for it will lead you to success.
“Is not my word like fire,” declares the LORD, “and like a hammer that breaks a rock in pieces? Jeremiah 23:29
Moreover, as you take time to meditate on God’s word, it begins to marinate your mind with wise thinking. Beyond your personal interaction in prayer and study, make sure you are engaged with a small group of Christ followers who will challenge and sharpen your thinking. Life change results from a clear understanding of why you believe what you believe. Yes, ask your heavenly Father to fill your mind with what really matters to Him.
Do you have a word from God for a major decision you are facing? If not, wait until you do, and then validate your thinking with other godly advisors. If you do, then proceed in the power of the Holy Spirit and trust the Lord with the results. It may not make sense in the short run, but you can trust Him in the long run. God’s word always wins out!
“For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12
Prayer: Heavenly Father, engraft Your word in my heart so I grow to know You better.
