Topic: Accessing and Profiting from the Word
[Seeds of Destiny 5 April 2019 Devotional]
The Word of God contains our inheritance; it is calculated for the profit of God’s people.
SCRIPTURE: Thus saith the LORD, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the LORD thy God which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go. Isaiah 48:17
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The Word of God contains our inheritance; it is calculated for the profit of God’s people.
The Word of God is a mine of inestimable treasures and riches. It is pregnant with benefits and profits for those who prayerfully and dedicatedly access and explore it. There are profits from accessing the Word of God. The Word of God contains our inheritance; it is calculated for the profit of God’s people. The aim of the instructions in the Word of God is for our profiting.
The implication of this is, when you are connected to the Word of God, your life must experience observable, noticeable and evidential profits; people around you would testify that your life has changed since you got connected to the Bible. It is an abomination to carry and study the Bible as a genuine child of God without evidential profits.
Now, how do we access the Word of God for our profit?
i. Have Interest in the Word
Interest brings insight (Hosea 6:1-3). Where there is no interest, there can be no insight. Your interest in the Word must be high for you to see anything out of the Word. The Word of God is concealed, so, it must be revealed by depth of passion and hunger.
ii. Be Fervent in the Spirit
Spiritual fervency is a key to insight. A man on fire for God who is literally praying in tongues can never be bankrupt of insight from the Word (1 Corinthians 2:9). So, the process of spiritual fervency is a process of spiritual revelation.
Beloved, my counsel is, apply yourself to diligently secure access to the Word of God on a continual basis. Apply your life to the things you see out of scriptures until noticeable progress is experienced in your life.
REMEMBER THIS: The Word of God contains our inheritance; it is calculated for the profit of God’s people.
