There is nothing more rewarding than seeing people hear the truth of God’s Word and having that ‘light switch on’ in their eyes when they understand it in a way that is meaningful to them. It makes me want to dance and shout for joy every time! And if I get so much delight out of seeing that connection being made, where God’s Words of life drop from their minds to their hearts, can you just imagine how the Lord must feel? Especially since His Word is Him! It carries His perspective, His thoughts, His Life and wisdom! When we get excited about the Word and respond to it as a precious treasure, knowing it will enrich our lives in every way, it’s the very same thing as us getting excited to receive the Lord Himself, and have Him change our lives forever!
I’ve been reading a book called The Simplicity of Healing by Dr. Sandra G. Kennedy. What intrigued me about this book and encouraged me to ‘sink my teeth into it’, is the inscription bellow the title of the book that says, ‘A practical guide to releasing the miracle power of God’s Word’. I know that God’s Word is filled with His power, life and supernatural peace. Many Christians do. But the key to releasing its power into our daily lives, begins with the way we approach it. Reading God’s Word as an obligation has very little benefit. But approaching it with a hunger for its truth and an earnest expectation for its life to be released into us is an entirely different thing. When we take the time, and make the effort to understand it, God’s Word will ALWAYS produce the powerful, supernatural force of FAITH that will change our lives forever.
That’s because faith steps us into a realm where nothing is impossible! Faith is the spiritual currency that enables us to operate in the dimension of the supernatural, and have access to every single promise and provision God has provided for us in His Word.
Look at what Proverbs 4:20-22 says, “My son, attend to my words; consent and submit to my sayings. Let them not depart from your sight; keep them in the center of your heart. For they are life to those who find them, healing and health to all their flesh.”
When we give God’s Word our attention, it will produce unshakable faith inside of us. The Word’s of God bring life to anyone who FINDS them.
That implies we must read the Word with the intention of finding something in it. Like searching for a precious treasure that will enrich our lives, expecting to find it when we search for it with an eager, hungry heart.
Hebrews 11:6 says, “But without faith it is impossible to please and be satisfactory to Him. For whoever would come near to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He is the rewarder of those who earnestly and diligently seek Him [out].”
One of the wonderful qualities the Word of God has, is its ability to become addictive to anyone who finds its truth. Oh boy, am I experiencing that first hand! The more time I spend in the Word, studying it, meditating on it, writing about it, speaking about it, the more I feel the need to get more of it into my life. I really believe that’s because God’s Words bring us an INFUSION OF HIS LIFE! And when we find that life, it heals, restores and transforms us.
2 Corinthians 3:18 says, “And all of us, as with unveiled face, [because we] continued to behold [in the Word of God] as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever increasing splendor and from one degree of glory to another; [for this comes] from the Lord [Who is] the Spirit.”.
The day I decided to make God’s Word the ‘mirror’ where I could see the very image and life of God being reflected into my own life, was the day I embraced His truth and welcomed its transforming process in my life. I know the way I look today is different from the way I looked the last time I was in God’s Word. I don’t just look different, I speak and act differently too. Each time I embrace His Words of Life, I take on a new aspect of His nature. I gain more of His wisdom and walk more in His light. I experience more of His provision, enjoy a deeper portion of His grace and see His goodness and mercy shadow my every step, a little further than before.
Oh the joy of knowing God in His Word! It will change our lives forever!
Spend time with your life changer today!
All my love,
