How much time is lost in vain pursuits, how much pain & anguish can be avoided when we finally get our priorities set? If we are truly indwelt with the Holy Spirit, having Christ seated as King over our Hearts (mind, soul & spirit) there comes a point where we must forsake the natural to grab hold of the super natural.
We are heading straight into a period in our history foretold of, prophetically warned about! Great signs & wonders will be occurring, a great divide will rise up between those who have been dibble dabbling & those who are fully sold out & grafted in. Deception and trickery will be undetectable to those operating under their own self assigned way of stewardship. Heed this warning, Get right or get Left. You will need the the Holy Spirit & the written Word of God to decipher current events that haven’t happened yet. The Word becomes our shield, our sword , the detector of lies; it will also become sustenance for our hardships, the ultimate resource directory for all things supernatural of God.
The natural man wants to place everything else as a priority over this, avoidance, procrastination, lack of time, exhaustion, frustration & the list goes on. These are carefully devised traps , chords of binding if you will, placed by the enemy. Satan doesn’t want you in a good place with God cause that’s when he looses ground, control & ability to harm you.
The Word of God is a Gateway for the Lord to walk through, unlocking new information through previously recorded words. It is not something we need to forsake but it is something we are clearly instructed to stay in, to bind it upon our hearts, to become ultra familiar with, we are to return to it daily. The mind is still unfortunately subject to the occasional smoke screen imposed by deceit; emotions, circumstances & our natural sin state. This is the world that we live in & until we are perfected we must realize these Gateways must be secured, the Gateway of the Word is one of these areas, it needs a gatekeeper…YOU! Staying in the Word is so important because it is a vital point of connection & flow necessary to obtain spiritual food. Our relationship with Father is one thing, its interpersonal. The Word is part of that Triune togetherness. Flour and water are necessary in order to make cake but not sufficient. Same applies to our daily life, we need the Word around and in us, in front of us, in our ears and to pass before our eyes, repeatedly, consistently, its part of the overall recipe.
I know many people who can recant the words to a song, a commercial or movie scene any other flimflam thing that exists but how many can recount entire passages of scripture?…How many of us can recall a scripture word for word. Its not a memorization game by far but it is so important to realize that this is our responsibility, otherwise, God wouldn’t have left it for us and instructed us to do so.
Let’s get this one area back under Gods providence, make this your New Life resolution! Let this year be the beginning; behold the Power & Provision that awaits!
Father, as we have arrived into a new year full of challenges & blessings, let us grab hold of Your uncompromising Truths, let us absorb You fully and forsake the wide, easy path for the straight, narrow path. Lead us as You do, as the Good Shepard and show us in Your Word through confirmations of Spirit that our best interest is served and kept when we keep YOUR Words and commands, Help us up out of our own misconceptions to see Your truth, to run and not grow weary, to climb & strive, to knock, to obtain and to remain. In the Mighty name of Yehushua, Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ AMEN!
Hebrews 4:12King James Version (KJV)
12For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
Psalm 1: 1-31Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
2But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
3And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
Romans 12:22And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
1 Corinthians 15:1, 2 (“1Now, brothers, I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand. 2By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain.”).
James 1:22-2522But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
23For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:
24For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.
25But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.
Colossians 3:1616Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
