Topic: Accessing Word Revelation Through Value And Obedience
SCRIPTURE: Thou shalt keep therefore his statutes, and his commandments, which I command thee this day, that it may go well with thee, and with thy children after thee…. Deuteronomy 4:40
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: It is not memorizing the verses of the Scripture that changes your life but encountering the Voice behind the verse.
MESSAGE: Our anchor Scripture has established that the Word of God is designed to enhance both the welfare and progress of man. Jeremiah 7:23 also corroborates this. The question is: why is it that many continue to come in contact with the Word without any observable progress in their lives?
Psalm 62:11 reveals the answer: God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God. That is, God spoke once (What is written or the verse), twice have I heard (What is revealed or the Voice). It is accessing both what is written and what is revealed that guarantees the welfare and progress of man.
It is not memorizing the verses of the scripture that grants access to insight and a change of life but encountering the Voice behind the verses.
We shall be looking at having access to the revelations of the Word by:
1. Obeying the Word: Obedience brings insight. God gives more light and insight to those who hearken to the ones he had already given (Mark 4:24). God will never give you a new revelation beyond your level of obedience to the last instruction. Seeds of Destiny Devotional July 24, 2017
2. Placing value on the Word: Value brings insight. God does not give precious things to people who do not value them (Matthew 7:6), and the Word of God is precious. A person who does not value insight has no future. A wise person would always be with a pen and paper to document what he or she learns from the Word in the course of study. So, write down the revelations you receive while studying the Word, generate action steps and carry them out.
Remember this: It is not memorizing the verses of the scripture that changes your life but encountering the Voice behind the verses.
