KEY SCRIPTURE: John 1:1 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God”.
The word is God. This should always be our understanding each time we take the word of God to read or study. The word is a living being.
Hebrews 4:12 says “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” The word ‘quick’ means alive or living. The proceeding verse reads “Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.” This verse further establishes the fact that the word is a living person with an all seeing eye nothing is hidden from him. All things are naked before Him with whom we have to do. Only God has an all seeing eye. God’s word is not just written words, but the acts, nature and ways of God expressed in written form.
The word must rule us. Our thoughts, believes and actions should be solely dominated by the word. To have more of the word in you, is to have more of God in you. Jesus said in John 6:63 “It is the Spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are Spirit, and they are life”. God is the only giver of life and the word does the same.
We do a great harm to our lives when we treat the bible as just another book. We must approach it as Jesus personally talking to us.
Every instruction from the bible must carry the same honour from us, just as JESUS was here talking to us.
The word ruling us means God ruling us. In John 20:29, Jesus saith unto Thomas,” Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed. “You are blessed, happy, privileged if you believe, treating the word as God presently talking to you.
Your life would take a new level of peace, power and prosperity, when you allow the word to rule you.
God and His word are one. Whatever the word says carries the same life and authority just as God Himself. I would be forever ruled by the word.
Acts 20:32 “And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified”.
Psalms 138:2 ” I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy loving-kindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name”.
