TREASURING GOD’S WORD – Part II

Dear Father in Heaven, let the word of God empower us to live a life according to Father’s will… I pray let Your anointing flow, In Jesus name Amen.

I will worship toward Your holy temple, And praise Your name For Your loving kindness and Your truth; For You have magnified Your word above all Your name.= Psalm 138:2

HOW TO LEARN –

  • BY STUDYING IT – AND APPLYING THE WORD

When you have a company, you won’t feel bored, tired and reading will be adventurous! … Your companion in reading the Word of God is God the Holy Spirit, WELCOME HIM BEFORE YOU READ THE WORD, ASK HIM TO OPEN THE SCRIPTURES TO YOU, REVEAL CHRIST JESUS! He is more than willing to tell! JUST ASK. 

For He will reveal all Truth to you and make reading the Bible an adventure in Christ! You will enjoy the revelations He will bring and will be filled with awe for God and love Him dearly…  You will also be able to make wiser decisions in areas where you suffered for you didn’t know what God wanted you to do, there was spiritual darkness  but now He will Help you. When we study the word of God we receive knowledge from God about Him, His heart and mind and we perceive what He says. Applying it in real life we get results. We see God move on our behalf.  

  •  IN THE BATTLEFIELD  – USE THE WORD

Even Jesus set an example by using the Word of God against satan’s lies. He said – “It is written”. (Read Matt 4). Satan is a defeated foe, yet he uses strategies to collapse our walk in God, He isn’t afraid when you go to church, he isn’t afraid when you are an anointed vessel of God, he fears when you pray for he fears God. He knows the power that destroyed him! Treasure God’s Word always.

  • THE WORD WASHES YOU –

    ENTER INTO YOUR GARDEN

The Word of God cleanses us. How? God’s word is alive, it is living! when you allow Him to speak to you through the Word, He is able to remove all that marred you through life’s terrible circumstances. The Word of God is a treasure. 

  • GOD’S WORD ILLUMINATES –

Where there is darkness, confusions; God’s word destroys it. Only the Word of God is truth and the Truth dispels darkness by revealing what is hidden and enlightens our eyes that we see more than what we see with natural eyes.

  • WILLING TO UNLEARN MAN’S WAYS –

Many times you don’t receive what God speaks to you because there is a barrier and the barrier is the LOGIC SYSTEM. God’s logic is HIGHER AND ABOVE than man’s rational thinking, reasoning and logic. To know His mind, be willing to surrender your set way of thinking and when the motive of your heart is pure in His sight, He will answer all the questions that arises in your heart and mind.  TRUST HIM.

  • RECEIVE HIS WAYS –

We have to say YES to be His students, We have to Honor God as our Teacher and learn from God the Holy Spirit. Holy Spirit will teach us through His servants any one He wills to use… His ways will be a sermon, a devotion, a conversation with someone, some times more supernatural – He will make Himself known to you. One must discern the voice of God while you are hearing the sermon or reading a Christian book. You have to HEAR GOD. You must seek Him with your heart. 

  • TREASURE GOD’S LAWS AND COMMANDMENTS

His commandments are what set the kingdom of God different from man’s world. We learn what is light and what is not. We learn His righteousness, His abhorrence to sin. He is Wisdom, knowledge and understanding. Your life can be built by His Word.

  • GOD REMOVES SIN

The spirit of man is the candle of the Lord, searching all the inward parts of the belly (spirit of man)- Prov 20:27

Through the conviction of Holy Spirit, we know what we must put off, we must let it be removed, for we must not let darkness reign. It does separate us from certain habits which we thought were harmless unless revealed by Jesus. He is a gentle Teacher and loves to teach. He even rebukes in love and it is sweet.

  • TO FOLLOW HIM

Jesus called the Apostles as He met them and said “follow Me“, it is the same thing TODAY. To follow Jesus and not ask Him to follow you. If you do – He won’t follow you, you will be alone on that road and He will wait for you to humble, demolish your ego , pride and follow Him in the path of righteousness. He will lead us through the narrow path of life. Even when satan uses all his old faded tricks to create fear, doubt in your heart – through the sword of the spirit – you can destroy all evil plan of satan. Father God seeks those who will follow Him and trust Him. 

  • FEAR OF THE LORD

Fear of the living God keeps us away from sinning. For the wages of sin is death. There is no pleasure in sin though satan lies to us in times of temptation. Fear of God keeps us from sinning. He is love and also we know He is Holy and that’s the reason to destroy the middle wall of separation between God and man, God the Father sent His only begotten Son Jesus Christ, that through His death our sin, our iniquity and our transgression be forgiven in Him.  That now we are  circumcised in heart. For transgressors will not inherit the kingdom of God. Finally all our works will be tested in fire and judged accordingly by God.

Fear of God is also being in awe of Him, we are called sons of obedience in Christ Jesus. Jesus obeyed God at all points, even at the point of death. Disobedience to the Holy commandments were the reason why Adam and eve fell into sin. His voice bids us to keep our feet away from satan’s trap and nets.

  • GOD’S WORD LIBERATES US –

Some who have thought God’s Word binds them have not truly experienced true liberty. They do not know what freedom is. God’s word liberates you from religious thinking, He gives you the freedom to love and not fill your heart with hatred and darkness. God’s word is life, it is bread to the hungry and water to the thirsty. It is miracle for the healing and deliverance someone has waited for. It is a message of love. You don’t have to cheat in your business to succeed, God will make a way when you yield in submission. Abraham was the most wealthiest person of his time and he was a servant of God.

  • GOD’S WORD IS TRUTH

Truth is what man seeks in His pleasure, labor, relationships and it is revealed only in Christ Jesus and the Word reveals the Christ your Saviour.

  • GOD’S WORD IS WISDOM, KNOWLEDGE –

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge,

But fools despise wisdom and instruction.  – Prov 1: 7

Receive what He says, His life, make the right choices by taking the directions of Holy Spirit and you will be blessed. 

God bless us in knowing His Word always and forever. Treasure His Word for His Word is indeed Treasure!

TREASURING GOD’S WORD – Part I

Dear God the Holy Spirit, let God’s word enrich us in our walk in Christ Jesus, that we treasure God’s word, In Jesus name Amen

All Scripture is given by inspiration of God – 2 Tim 3:16

God’s word is spirit. God is Word and He speaks to us through His Word. The Bible is full of Truth and as Holy men were directed by God the Holy Spirit, they wrote as the Lord guided and directed them.

TRUE TREASURE OF MAN!

His Word is eternal. For God said in His Word – Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away. – Mark 13:31

God’s will is revealed In His Word, we know His Righteousness and His ways through the Word of God –

For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, And do not return there,

But water the earth, And make it bring forth and bud,

That it may give seed to the sower And bread to the eater,

So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth;

It shall not return to Me void,

But it shall accomplish what I please,

And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it

– Isaiah 55:10 – 11

God reveals His secrets to His servants –

And I have put My words in your mouth; I have covered you with the shadow of My hand, That I may plant the heavens, Lay the foundations of the earth, And say to Zion, You are My people.  – Isaiah 51:16

Surely the Lord GOD does nothing, Unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets. – Amos 3:7

During the reign of kings in Israel, God constantly spoke to His people through the prophets and the kings studied the scriptures to know God’s mind and justice , that they may learn to reign in righteousness.

Believe in the LORD your God, and you shall be established; believe His prophets, and you shall prosper  – 2 Chronicles 20:20

King David in Psalm 119 gives a detailed account on how he feasted on God’s word and sought God to open the scripture to Him –

How can a young man cleanse his way?

By taking heed according to Your word.

With my whole heart I have sought You;

Oh, let me not wander from Your commandments!

Your word I have hidden in my heart,

That I might not sin against You.

Blessed are You, O Lord!

Teach me Your statutes.

With my lips I have declared

All the judgments of Your mouth.

I have rejoiced in the way of Your testimonies,

As much as in all riches.

I will meditate on Your precepts,

And contemplate Your ways.

I will delight myself in Your statutes;

I will not forget Your word.  – Psalm 119: 9-16

GOD’S WORD IS KEY TO ETERNAL LIFE!

GOD’S WORD UNLOCKS TREASURE OF HEAVEN! 

God’s Word is richly filled with Wisdom, Knowledge, revelation of God. When King Solomon prayed to God and sought His forgiveness – God visited him in the night vision and asked him what he desires from God and Solomon could have asked for numerous things from God.

Therefore give to Your servant an understanding heart to judge Your people, that I may discern between good and evil. For who is able to judge this great people of Yours? – 1 kings 3:9  He knew without the wisdom of God and guidance He cannot reign as a king over Israel, He cannot discern between good and evil. 

God’s favor rested on Solomon –

Then God said to Solomon: “Because this was in your heart, and you have not asked riches or wealth or honor or the life of your enemies, nor have you asked long life—but have asked wisdom and knowledge for yourself, that you may judge My people over whom I have made you king—  wisdom and knowledge are granted to you; and I will give you riches and wealth and honor, such as none of the kings have had who were before you, nor shall any after you have the like. – 2 Chron 1:11-12

GOD GUIDES US ALWAYS!

HOLY SPIRIT REVEALS THE WORD

After Jesus resurrection, the disciples walked through Emmaus, Jesus met them and they discussed about the death of Jesus and they did not know Jesus was with them for their eyes were restrained, yet the Lord spoke to them that Christ had to suffer to enter into His glory –

And beginning at Moses and all the Prophets, He expounded to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself – Luke 24: 27

His Word is life, even today when we live by His Word, we do see a change in our everyday life. We are able to make wiser decision and are able to keep away from evil. God blesses us as we seek His discernment. Everyone from time to time needs to make important life altering decision – to some it can be marriage, work, vocation, regarding business deals, about friendships. Studies and health related decisions. We do choose everyday what to do and not to do. What to carry on with and not to. Such decision make us think a lot, we consult a lot of experienced people; ask people to pray, guide us, study, do research and finally take a decision. All that is helpful, yet God’s word is accurate and He guides us when we seek Him with all our heart. His Word is not something AWAY FROM HIM, His Word is in Him.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. – John 1:1-4

This is a glorious truth, God is Word. And Jesus said –

The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life. – John 6:63. God’s Word is life. The greek word for LIFE is ZOE, which means lifetime, alive, lively , a primary verb, to live. God’s Word is ALIVE, QUICKENS US, it is DIVINE LIFE.

TREASURE HIS WORD ALWAYS

His Word is treasure to my soul, spirit. His Word brought life in me, when I first heard the word of God, my faith was revived, for God’s word says – faith comes by hearing the word of God. God’s word convicts us. Yet God the Holy Spirit is the One who enlightens us, thus we pray to God the Father – impart to us with the spirit of wisdom and spirit of revelation in the knowledge of Him that the eyes of my understanding being enlightened in the hope of His calling – Eph 1: 17

Pray today God the Holy Spirit teaches the Word to you and reveals Christ Jesus to you.

To be continued…

Love
