KEY SCRIPTURE: Matthew 12:35 KJV “”A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things”
What are you producing in your life? Are you producing peace, kindness and love, or are you producing unforgiveness and bitterness? Are you having sicknesses and failure all around you? The Bible says out of the heart proceed the issues of life. Proverb 4:23.” Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.” Where comes all these things? Many of us feed our hearts with scenes of horror films. Others fill their hearts with all kinds of negative thoughts. Sadly, some are very hostile towards God and his word. Such people are constantly filled with anger and many kinds of negative emotions.
The Lord says in spite of these negative experiences you might be facing, you can turn things around by making yourself good. Mat 12:33 KJV” Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit. “How can one make himself or herself good. The word of God is that agent of making men good. The word would place in you a bold spirit that would make you absolutely fearless. The word would put into you a winning attitude and you would no longer produce failure and defeat in your life. The word of God will cause you to produce health in place of sicknesses and diseases. Job 22:21 KJV “Acquaint now thyself with him, and be at peace: thereby good shall come unto thee.” Good would naturally come to you when you acquaint thyself with the word of God.
A 46-year-old lady who was born a cripple kept listening to Rev Kenneth Hagin’s messages for six months, and was completely healed just by staying with the word. There have been people who have been constantly depressed for so long, yet as they started feeding on the word of God, every depressive tendency left them. The word made them good and also brought good to them. The word would transform a home of fighting quarreling into a place of love, respect and fellow feeling. Please just consider the criterion of the word.
Hebrews 4:12 KJV “For the word of God is quick, (alive) 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.” God’s word affects and changes every aspect of man. Feed on the word.
God’s word is the ration of life. It is health to all my flesh; it is light for every darkness around me. It is wisdom for wise actions and peace of mind to my troubled heart.
Colossians 3:16 KJV” Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.”
2Timothy3:15 KJV” And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.”
