KEY SCRIPTURE: 2 Corinthians 1:20 ” For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us”.
The Bible is the word of God. 2nd Timothy 3:16 says “all scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto every good work”. The words of scripture proceed from the Spirit of God.
You would have a glorious life if you would take scripture as God speaking to you. Take God at His word. Every instruction, promise, counsel or teaching of scripture proceeds from the Spirit of God. It has His approval and would honour His word if you would take the scriptures as such. The Lord said to Jeremiah in Jeremiah 1:12 “Then said the Lord unto me, thou has well seen. For I will hasten my word to perform it”. This is God’s solemn promise. He watches over or would hasten His word to perform it.
Many Christians are living only religious lives because they approach the scriptures as a religious book. It has become a tradition to many people. They see it as a system of practices or believes which have being passed on to them. . They do not consider it as God speaking to them. The Lord said in Mark 7:13 that Jews by their traditions have made the word of God of non-effect.
Please listen to this statement carefully THE WORSE THING ANY MAN AND FOR THAT MATTER A CHRISTIAN COULD DO TO HIMSELF OR HERSELF ,IS TO TREAT THE BIBLE AS AN ORDINARY BOOK.
The word of God is the thoughts of God expressed in written form. They are an expression of what He would do. In actual fact, the word is God, is God Himself, (John 1:1). A man who is filled with the word and believes it absolutely as God’s word is a very powerful man. Stephen was described as a man full of faith and power, because he was filled with the word and he believed it as God’s word..
Take God at His word. Act on it as if God spoke them to you from His lips. This would place in you a very positive attitude about life. God’s word is the most positive source of information a man can have. The basic problem with most people is a wrong attitude about life. This is corrected when you take God at His word.
I take every scripture as God speaking to me. I know God is in His word to fulfil whatever He has said. I have a glorious life because I believe everything God says.
Hebrews 4:12 “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”.
Numbers 23:19 ” God is not a man that he should lie; neither the son of man that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? Or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?”
