How to Treasure God’s Word (Part-3)

How to Treasure God’s Word (Part-3)
‘Let the message about Christ, in all its richness, fill your lives.’ – Colossians 3:16 NLT

Today’s Insight:

As you fill your mind with God’s Word, the Holy Spirit will use it to transform you. ‘Let the message about Christ, in all its richness, fill your lives…with all the wisdom he gives.’ How do you do that?

1) By reading it. If you read the newspaper but not the Bible, you won’t grow spiritually. You can’t watch TV for three or four hours, then read your Bible for three or four minutes and expect growth. How can you say you believe the Bible from cover to cover, when you haven’t read it from cover to cover? ‘[We] should…read from it every day’ (Deuteronomy 17:19 NCV). If you read your Bible for just fifteen minutes a day, you’ll read completely through it once a year. If you cut out just one thirty-minute television programme daily, you can read it through twice a year. Daily Bible reading keeps you within range of God’s voice. Do you want to grow spiritually? Develop a daily Bible reading plan and stick with it.

2) By receiving it. In the parable of the sower Jesus talks about three unreceptive attitudes: a closed mind (hard soil), a superficial mind (shallow soil), and a distracted mind (soil with weeds) (see Luke 8:5-15). He then goes on to say, ‘Consider carefully how you listen’ (v.18 NIV 2011 Edition).

Any time you’re not learning, check your attitude, especially for pride, because God can speak to you through the most boring teacher if you’re humble and receptive. James says, ‘Humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you’ (James 1:21 NIV 2011 Edition). These aren’t just good ideas; they’re life-changing principles!

Other References: 2 Chronicles 1-3Acts 20:1-16

Today’s Prayer:

Lord, Thank you for your Word today which inspire us to spend more time. Lord I believed that as you read your Bible you let your Holy Spirit nurture my soul and develop my faith in you Lord. Lord your Word is a lamp to my feet and a guide to my path. Thank you that I have a Word that I can hold regardless of my situation in my life. Thank you that I have God that support and back up His Word even I am in the midst of trials you show your Word as my anchor and I believe it will lead me to become a man of faith. Lord teaches me always to love your Word and Trust it In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

Prayer for Salvation

Lord I admit I am a sinner I repent of all my sins and I receive you into my heart as my personal Lord and Savior, In Jesus Name! Amen. If you mean that prayer from the bottom of your heart you are now saved. It is God’s Word testified in John 3:16 that if you trust His Son Jesus you will not die but you will have Eternal Life. Welcome to the family of God!

In order for you to grow in your faith with God please do these consistently starting today; 1. Pray always 2. Read your Bible Daily 3. Attend Prayer Meeting, Bible Study, Church Training Seminars 4. Attend Church Services Regularly and make God first place in your life with your talents and finances 5. Lastly, witness Jesus to others that they may receive Eternal Life also.

How to Treasure God’s Word (Part-2)


20 June 2018

How to Treasure God’s Word (Part-2)
 ‘If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed.’ John 8:31 NKJV

Today’s Insight:

John writes, ‘I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers’ (3 John v.2 NKJV). In order to ‘prosper’, reading God’s Word must be one of your first priorities each day. Jesus said, ‘If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed.’ To ‘abide’ means to reside in a certain place. It makes us think of home, the place where you find joy, acceptance, encouragement, support, protection, purpose, identity, and rest.

To ‘treasure’ God’s Word means to accept it as your highest authority, your compass for direction, your counsellor in making decisions, your benchmark for evaluating every relationship and action. In other words, the first and last word in your life.

Many of our troubles occur because we base our choices on unreliable authorities, like: Culture – ‘Everybody’s doing it.’ Tradition – ‘We’ve always done it this way.’ Reason – ‘It seems logical.’ Emotion – ‘It just feels right.’ All these are flawed because they come from within us, not from God.

What we need is a perfect standard that will never lead us in the wrong direction, and only God’s Word meets that criteria. Solomon wrote, ‘Every word of God is flawless’ (Proverbs 30:5 NIV 2011 Edition). That means when His Word tells you to do something, you need to do it by faith whether or not it makes sense to you, and whether or not you feel like doing it. You must say like Paul, ‘I believe everything that…is written’ (Acts 24:14 NIV ).

 References: 1 Chronicles 28-29, Acts 19:23-41

Today’s Prayer:

Lord, Thank you for not hidden your Word from us as King David’s says I treasure your Word above all. Lord your Word is powerful and can change our life when we obey by faith. As we read today’s insight we are recharged and received full of hope and that we are assured by your Word. Thank you that you are always open and available for us. Lord as we pray we are talking to you and as we read your Word you are talking to us to give us assurance and peace in our life even we live in this troubled world. Lord thank you for your protection and your Word today In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

 Prayer for Salvation

Lord I admit I am a sinner I repent of all my sins and I receive you into my heart as my personal Lord and Savior, In Jesus Name! Amen. If you mean that prayer from the bottom of your heart you are now saved. It is God’s Word testified in John 3:16 that if you trust His Son Jesus you will not die but you will have Eternal Life. Welcome to the family of God!

How To Treasure God's Word (Part-1)

Word of Hope for Today with PRC

                                                   

                                               How To Treasure God's Word (Part-1)

‘I have treasured the words of his mouth more than my daily bread.’Job 23:12 NIV

Today's Insight:

The Spirit of God makes us like the Son of God, through the Word of God! That’s why Satan will put 101 roadblocks in your way to keep you from reading the Bible. Paul writes, ‘[God’s]…Word can make you into what he wants you to be and give you everything you could possibly need’ (Acts 20:32 MSG). Underscore that word ‘everything’. 

God’s Word is like seed; it’s filled with potential. Jesus said, ‘The words that I have spoken to you…are life’ (John 6:63 NASB). 

An amazing thing happens when you study the Scriptures. Your mind illuminates, your heart resonates, and the truth comes to life in you. The Bible is more than just a doctrinal guidebook. It creates faith, produces change, causes miracles, heals hurts, builds character, transforms circumstances, imparts joy, overcomes adversity, defeats temptation, builds hope, releases power, cleanses minds, brings things into being, and guarantees your future. You can’t survive without it. It’s as essential to your life as food. That’s why Job said, ‘I have treasured the words of his mouth more than my daily bread.’ God’s Word is the spiritual nourishment you need to fulfil your life’s purpose. 

The Bible is described as milk, bread, solid food, and sweet dessert (see 1 Peter 2:2; Matthew 4:4; 1 Corinthians 3:2; Psalm 119:103). This four-course meal is the Spirit’s menu for daily strength and growth. Peter writes, ‘Crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up’ (1 Peter 2:2 NIV 2011 Edition). So make a commitment to spend time each day reading God’s Word.

References: 1 Chronicles 25-27Acts 19:1-22

Today’s Prayer

Heavenly Father, Thank you for your Word Today.  Truly your Word is Perfect Guidance and the Final Authority of our Faith. Lord Increase our faith to truly believe your Word without reservation just like Job Lord He treasures your Word and touch also our heart to reasure your Word always. Increase our faith to always meditate your Word that may have confidence in our walk with you. In Jesus’ Mighty Name. Amen!

Prayer for Salvation

Lord I admit I am a sinner I repent of all my sins and I receive you into my heart as my personal Lord and Savior, In Jesus Name! Amen. If you mean that prayer from the bottom of your heart you are now saved. It is God’s Word testified in John 3:16 that if you trust His Son Jesus you will not die but you will have Eternal Life. Welcome to the family of God!
