Topic: Profiting From the Word [Saturday January 21, 2017]
Scripture: Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law. Psalm 119:18.
Thought For The Day: God’s Word works for those who work it.
God’s intention for giving us His Word is to make us benefit from it. All that we need in life to be everything God created us to be is in God’s Word. Therefore, studying God’s Word to know what is written is very important.
Now, how do we derive Divine benefits from the Word of God?
1. Pray for the light of God’s Word: When Jesus opened the book, He located the place where the Word concerning Him was written in the Bible (Luke 4:17-18). There are things our physical eyes cannot see from God’s Word until our spiritual eyes have been opened through prayer. It takes prayer to see light from God’s Word.
2. Act on the Word: God’s Word works for those who work it. Do not just look for Scripture to quote but to act on. In 2 Kings 5:14, when Naaman agreed to act on the Word, he was healed. It is the doing of the Word that produces results (Luke 5:4-6).
Beloved, act on the revealed Word. When you find the Word on a particular subject, practice it by doing what it says.
Remember this: God’s Word works for those who work it.
1. Pray for the revelation of God’s Word before you study it.
2. Act on every revealed Word in your spirit.
