SCRIPTURE: “Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls”. James 1:21(KJV)
TREM Daily Devotional 12th July 2022 MESSAGE
As a believer in Christ, it is the word of God that defines exactly who you are. Today’s passage says we should receive with meekness, the word of God; not the word of a man. In other words, not man’s opinion, nor what man thinks. Don’t determine your faith based on another person’s opinion of you. That person never died for you. The one who died for you is Jesus. So the best thing you can do for yourself is to listen to what Jesus did on your behalf. Jesus said: “It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.” John 6:63
Brother James calls the word of God, the perfect law of liberty (James 1:25). The word of God is the only thing that can truly define and describe you; not man’s opinion; not your situation; not your circumstance nor the things you are going through and not your problems or the distress, n0 matter what it is. Since the word is your true image, as you begin to look into it and continue therein, you cannot but be blessed.
The scripture encourages you not to be a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the word so that you can be blessed in your deed. When you keep looking at what the scripture says, then when somebody says you are poor, you respond with what the scriptures say. God supplies my need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. God can make all grace abound toward me, that I, having all sufficiency in all things, I abound unto all good works. God supplies your need. Jehovah Jireh, your great provider is always with you.
Child of God, that should be your mindset, even when everything around you looks negative. At every point in time, you must think about what God is thinking concerning you and say what He has said concerning you.
