Topic: Profits Of Dedication To The Word [Seeds of Destiny 3 May 2019 Devotional]
Every new insight from the Word of God raises your faith level.
SCRIPTURE: So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Romans 10:17
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Every new insight from the Word of God raises your faith level.
The Word of God is a mine of inestimable treasure. God’s Will, Plan and Agenda for the welfare of His people are encapsulated in His Word. The Word of God is the promises and goodness of God revealed for the profiting of man.
Yesterday, we saw some of the products of prayer. Today, we shall look at what the study of the Word is all about and the profits of dedication to the Word.
Now, what does the study of the Word of God entail?
The study of the Word of God is the accessing of the ways, thoughts, principles and precepts of God from His Book in order to walk better with Him. It is the act of trying to know what God likes, how He thinks, what His principles are, what you are forbidden from doing if you want to walk with Him; it is not just about quoting Scriptures.
It is important to know that every new insight from the Word of God raises your faith level; light is the food of faith. Every time you see something you have never seen before in Scriptures, your audacity shifts to a new level.
Now, what are the profits of dedication to the Word?
i. The Word of God Builds Strength (1 John 2:14).
You cannot be weak if you are worded. You do not win by size, you win by faith.
ii. The Word of God Builds Hope (Psalm 119:81).
The Word of God keeps hope alive. You are delivered from discouragement by the Word (Psalm 119:81).
iii. The Word of God Brings Joy (Psalm 119:162).
You cannot be worded and be depressed. The Word of God is the therapy for depression and despair. When you access light from scriptures directly or in preached messages, it kills every form of depression and discouragement from your life.
Beloved, my counsel is, study the Word of God habitually and persistently. I decree fresh insight from God’s Word for your life as you study from today, in Jesus’ Name.
REMEMBER THIS: Every new insight from the Word of God raises your faith level.
- Endeavour to make the reading and studying of the Word a lifestyle
- Do not only read the Bible; also act on the principles discovered from reading and studying the Bible.
PRAYER: O Lord, I ask that You open my eyes to see wonders from Your Word (Psalm 119:18). Let me not be a hearer of Your Word only but also a doer of the Word (James 1:22), Lord in Jesus Name.
