Topic: The Products of Dedication to God’s Word
[Seeds of Destiny 17 March 2019 Devotional]
God’s Word carries the same power as the Presence of God.
SCRIPTURE: I rejoice at thy word, as one that findeth great spoil. Psalm 119:162.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: God’s Word carries the same power as the Presence of God.
Yesterday, we saw the profits of dedication to God’s Word; we saw that the Word of God builds strength and hope. The Word of God builds confidence, strength, energy, resilience and tenacity.
To explore the potency and importance of God’s Word, we shall look at two more profits of the Word of God:
i. The Word of God brings joy
The Word of God brings joy (Jeremiah 15:16).
You cannot be worded and be depressed. The secret of the joy is the Word of God. The Word of God is the therapy for depression and despair; either the Word you see from Scripture or the Word that is preached, God’s Word is the answer to the spirit of heaviness.
ii. The Word of God connects one to God’s Presence
The Word of God connects one to God’s Presence. The Presence of God is in His Word (1 Samuel 3:21). When God’s Word comes, God Himself appears. The Word of God connects one to God’s Presence. That is, the Presence of God is conveyed via His Word. Anywhere God’s Word is, God’s Presence is also there (John 1:1-5).
Every time you see a worded person, you would also feel God. God’s Word carries the same power as the Presence of God. So, when you see a worded person, you feel God’s Presence. This is because the Word of God connects you to God’s Presence and of course, God’s Presence preserves you (Psalm 23:4).
Beloved, my counsel is, make up your mind to be worded.
Remember this: God’s Word carries the same power as the Presence of God.
1.Make up your mind to avoid the lifestyle of depression.
2.Connect to the joy and presence of the Lord through the Word of God.
PRAYER: I receive the grace LORD to undertake a dutiful and diligent study of Your Word. Help me LORD to connect to joy and Your Presence by the Word, LORD, in Jesus’ Name.
