Theme: Think…Talk…And Act The Word
|Pastor Chris Oyakhilome PhD, DSC, DD|
And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified (Acts 20:32).
Being born again, you were born by the incorruptible Word of God. The Bible says, “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever” (1 Peter 1:23). So, you ought to learn how to use the Word of God. Learn to think, talk, and act as though the Word of God is true, because it is. Jesus said, “Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth” (John 17:17).
If you don’t think, talk and act as though the Word is true, what you’d have will be mere religion, and there’s no life in religion. The Bible says, “Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away... Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth” (2 Timothy 3:5-7). You can bet your life on the Word; its integrity is unquestionable. The Word never fails, because it’s a spiritual law. Jesus said, “Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away” (Mark 13:31).
Many years ago, I challenged myself to believe, talk and live the Word. The reason was simple: It’s not possible for someone to believe the Word of God and remain the same. I made up my mind to go for the Word, and live in the Word, and the result has been a life in one direction only: upward and forward; a life of constant victories and glory through the Word. 1Timothy 4:15 says, “Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all.” This means that your progress, advancement, and prosperity will appear unto all as you yield to the Word. As you live-out the Word; as you think, talk, and act the Word, your success will spread abroad and become widely and openly known. Everyone will see that you’re making tremendous progress in every area of your life. It’s the ministry of the Word to make this happen for you.
Your Word, dear Father, is my daily meditation. In it, I have peace, security, wealth, health, and all the good things of life. Your Word in my spirit gives me the right mindset. My victory is assured because your Word is on my lips; and nothing is impossible to me, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Further Study: || 2 Timothy 3:15-17 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 16 All scripture [is] given by inspiration of God, and [is] profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. ||
|| Joshua 1:8 AMP This Book of the Law shall not depart out of your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, that you may observe and do according to all that is written in it. For then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall deal wisely and have good success. ||
