Living By The Word
“But he answered and said, it is written, man shall not live bread alone but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God”. Matthew 4:4
The Bible is not a novel or a comic book. It is a book filled with life. We are supposed to live by it. The word of God is Spirit and it is life. The Bible paints the picture of what God has already packaged for you and if He has packaged it, no devil can change it. The bible contains God’s present word to you. It is not the opinion of man or the imaginations of man, it is the word of God and remember, no word of God is void of power.
I have always said whatever the word of God cannot give you, doesn’t exist and you don’t need it. Therefore, whatever you are looking for in life can be found in His word. The word of God should be your compass that navigates you through the affairs of life. The scripture tells us that so mightily grew the word of God and it prevailed. God’s word always has the advantage in anything in life. It provides for you, it heals you, it secures you, it guarantees your inheritance in Christ.
However, you cannot live by the word you do not know. So make reading of the word of God a daily habit. Don’t get caught up in the activities of the day without giving attention to the word of God. The Psalmist was so smart that he declared: “Thy word have I hid in my heart that I might not sin against Thee”. Are you like that? Are you making conscious effort to read study and meditate on the word of God? Lack of study of the word of God leads to spiritual emptiness; like in the natural, so in the spiritual, when you are empty, you lack strength and the devil will take advantage of your weakness.
Build yourself up n the study of the word of God. Get tapes and listen to Holy Ghost inspired messages. We are in a generation where everything is available, so you have no excuse. You have the word in tapes, cds, dvds, mp3 and other media. The interesting thing is that there is practically no type of phone that does not have a bible software; so you can download it into your phone and just read it wherever you are. Fall in love afresh with the word of God today and your life will never remain the same again.
