Put the The Word of God First

January 28, 2017

Usually, most people make some kind of resolutions each January. Often people choose things way too easy or way too difficult for them to keep. Christians should improving consistently throughout their lives. God Himself is transforming us from glory to glory as we pray, read the Word of God, worship and gather as Christians. In His presence we are strengthened and encouraged.

2 Corinthians 3: 2

18 But we all, seeing the glory of the Lord with unveiled faces, as in a mirror, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory by the Spirit of the Lord.

In His presence we are transformed. The glory of God is released over us as we pray and as we desire more of God. God is revealing His light to us – His beauty.Desire God and worship Him with all your being. The Word of God is God’s direct instruction manual written for us so we could know a prosperous, joyful, complete life.

I want to encourage you to invest the Word in yourself spiritually in this year of 2017.


Holy Bible – Get as much of the Word of God as you can. In Joshua 1 God instructs Joshua to keep the Word of God in his heart and life. He commands him to tell the people to keep the Word of God in their hearts and on their lips. They should know the Word of God and it would be life to them. Proverbs 4: 22

for they are life to those who find them,
and health to all their body.

I mean read the Word of God. Pray the Word of God. Discover some scriptures that can directly apply to your life. Read the Word. Pray the Word over yourself and over loved ones. Say the Word. Come into complete agreement with what the Word of God says about you and about others.

God’s Word is a lamp to our a feet and a light to our path (Psalm 119: 105 )He gives us revelation, understanding and wisdom from His Word. The Holy Spirit can quicken a Word to us and totally change our lives because of it.

Sermons – Make church attendance a priority.Take notes. Apply yourself to get wisdom from the teaching and preaching of God’s Word. ¬†Listen to or watch excellent preaching and teaching on tv or satellite or Internet. Pray about what areas God would give you direction. Sometimes, God can put the exact sermon to feed your spirit there on the tv or radio. You may learn things that can be transformational in your life. God’s Word is true. God’s Word is the plumbline of life. God’s Word is sharp. God’s Word is powerful. God’s Word can be used as a weapon against the enemy. God’s Word reveals the standard for our lives in all aspects of life: relationships, purpose, worship.

Pray that God might equip you with the Word of God to bring light in your spheres of influence.That means in every area of your life where you go including school, church, your job, etc. God goes with you. You could speak life into people by speaking words of encouragement or words of comfort. Memorize scripture. Start to say Scripture as part of your conversation.

Friends – Get together with Christian friends to talk about the scriptures. It can be Bible study class or an informal gathering of friends with the Word of God as the topic. Get the Word of God in your life more than you did last year.


May God encourage you, direct your steps and put divine connections in your life. May God give you understanding and wisdom from the Holy Word: the Bible.
