CHARACTER STUDIES: PAUL 64

KEY SCRIPTURE: ACTS 19:20. So mightily grew the word of God and prevailed.

Our key scripture said the word of God grew and prevailed. The word of God is God’s identity code.

Anywhere the word of God is allowed to grow it would prevail.

God’s word growing means the word spread in the vicinity and people also gave heed to the word of God. The word of God is not ordinary thoughts but supernatural expressions of ideas, instructions and intention backed by the life of God. The Lord Jesus said, the flesh profit nothing but the word that I speak unto you they are spirit and life. John 6:63, John 1:1 says the word and God are one. How is God like? Look at his word. They are His identity code. When a man honors the word in his life, he decodes God’s identity and he manifests in his life.

 The people of Ephesus gave heed to the word of God and they saw the power of God. God became real to them. God is only hidden to those who are not yielding to his word.

Life is not a mystery. It may not fill with uncertainties depending. on how you walk with God. God has designed a path in which he walks with men and shows himself to them. It is the life of giving attention to His word. The bible says those who attend to the word of God and incline the ears to what he says would find it as life and health to all their flesh (Proverbs 4:20-22). Life becomes a mystery with unexplainable happenings and painful, hurtful situations because men live by their mind and their senses. I am not saying walking with God means everything is rosy. No, that is not what I mean. Walking with God by virtue of obeying the word, the makes you an automatic champion irrespective of what happens. You receive the energy to stand and overcome. You are not amazed at what happens but the word prevails for you.

The word would always grow and would prevail. Dear child of God, don’t get worried about the uncertainties of life. Don’t be moved at the reports of fear and danger all around us. Jesus said be of good cheer for I have overcome the world. He is the living word. Acting on the word is allowing the one who overcame the world to live through you and act through you. You would surely prevail.

CONFESSION

God’s word is living and active. I give the word access in my life to function fully. I prevail over all mountains that I face. Defeat is far from me because I have made the word my delight and meditate on it day and night.
