Romans 10:17 says, “Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the Word of Christ.” Did you catch that? Faith comes from hearing and knowing God’s Word! So consider these 3 things when it comes to God’s Word.
1. God’s Word is our food. If we want to experience the real, abundant, eternal life that Jesus offers, the only way is to consume his Word everyday. The same way your body needs food, our soul needs Jesus. A steady diet of Scripture is to the soul what a steak and potato is to the body. Fill your soul with the Word of God.
2. God’s Word is our weapon. Hebrews 4:12 says, “For the Word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double edge sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. When we face a spiritual attack or temptation, we can fight back using the Word of God as our weapon. We can not always prevent the attack, but we can prepare for it and be ready to use God’s Word in our defense. His Word is a powerful weapon!
3. The Word of God is our guide. Psalm 119:105 says, “Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.” In a dark world, when nothing is certain, when all you see are shadows, and your not sure which way to go, the Word of God is the light you need to make it to your destination. Maybe you have gotten off course. Maybe you life has been hijacked by the enemy and your dreams have been crushed. You ended up in a place you never thought you would be. God’s Word will leads us back to the center of His love.
Consume it, fight your battles with it, and follow it as your guide. Great faith comes when we decide that His Word is enough. I love you guys! Have a great Saturday and don’t forget to devour the Word of God! It’s our daily spiritual food we need to be strong and to kick Satan butt. Haha
