Reading The Word of God has changed my life vastly. Very quickly. It nourishes my soul and provides Godly wisdom. Throughout the various amounts of life situations, the Bible tends to have a story and an answer for each & every single one of them.
People tend to think that since The Word is from the “past”, that it is not valuable nor relevant enough to help us through the situations that we face today. Well I am here to say that is simply wrong!
One thing I love about WordPress is the community that precedence itself here. It’s another way for my spirit to feed on the word. By conversing with other believers and reading their opinions about spirituality.
God tells us that the more time we spend meditating on and speaking His Word, the more we will see the benefits in our everyday lives and even have a closer relationship with Him. He even promises we’ll be prosperous and successful! (See Joshua 1:8).
I can testify to this because I have made it through many trials and even devastating times by believing and confessing the Word of God over my life. There’s something powerful that happens when we speak His Word out loud. It’s the way we learn to purposely think right thoughts, especially when we make the Scriptures personal confessions of faith.
It’s great to read the Word and receive it in your heart, but when you confess it out loud, you actively interact with what God says and release its power into your life.
I encourage you to spend time reading and meditating on God’s Word, lining your thoughts up with it. But I also urge you to speak the Word.
You can make up your mind to work toward changing your life by saying what God says. Read His Word and speak it over your circumstances today.
“Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.”
Joshua 1:8 NIV
Prayer Starter: “God, I want to release the full power of Your Word into my life. Along with reading and thinking about Your Word, I choose today to speak it over my life.” – Please set a prayer for those affected by the church shooting down in south Texas. I am praying that they do not resent God nor the church due to someone else’s senseless actions.
