WORD

God's Word, do you value it, by spending time in it, cherish it, by internalizing and personalizing it, keep it, by obeying it, hide it in your heart, by memorizing it, feed upon it, by growing in the knowledge of it, apply it, by allowing it to have the greatest influence and direct impact upon every area of your life? Or is it just something you choose to access only when YOU feel the need to have a shot or boost of it, in order to make your life easier, more comfortable or even perhaps somewhat more conducive and convenient to how you want to live your life? The "B" in Bible doesn't stand for Buffet...We should not just take and utilize the parts that we like, while leaving the parts we don't like, or are not comfortable with, on the table...There is a common phrase used throughout The Word of God, it is..."The Word of The Lord came to me." We need to look for, listen to, then accept and obey The Word of The Lord, when it comes into any part of our lives. Each and everyday, as we open ourselves up to His Word, we should avail ourselves to it and with great diligence look to His Word deliberately for wisdom and guidance. I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you. Turn my eyes away from worthless things; preserve my life according to your word. You are my refuge and my shield; I have put my hope in your word. (‭Psalm‬ ‭119‬:‭11, 37, 114‬ NIV) My son, pay attention to what I say; turn your ear to my words. (‭Proverbs‬ ‭4‬:‭20‬ NIV) For, “All people are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord endures forever.” And this is the word that was preached to you. (‭1 Peter‬ ‭1‬:‭24-25‬ NIV)

A simple Prayer for you...

When God takes something from your grasp, he's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. Concentrate on this sentence. "The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you." Something good will happen to you today, something that you have been waiting to hear. Just 27 Words, 'God our Father, walk through my house and take away all my worries and illnesses and please watch over and heal my family in your name, Amen.' This prayer is so powerful. I would ask that you pass this prayer to 12 people including me. A blessing is coming to you in form of a new job, a house, marriage or financially.  Does God come first in your life? If so,stop what you're doing and pray this now.  Watch what He does.
