Topic: Efficacy of The Word [DCLM Daily Manna 11 March 2019 Daily Devotional by Pastor William Folorunso Kumuyi]
Text: Psalm 19:7-14 (KJV)
Key Verse: “The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple” (Psalm 19:7).
Hakeem belonged to another religion. He recalls with joy the day a friend invited him to the church. He had failed on many occasions to honour the invitation, but one day due to the persistent pressure from his friend, he went. “The preacher descended on me” he said. “Everything I was doing was what he talked about in his message”. He became angry and upset and went to him after the message and asked him why he should use him for his preaching. But he said, “I am sorry my brother, I have never met you or known you before. The word you just heard is from God and I am only being used of Him to speak His mind”. I then asked him to pray for me and he did; that’s how I became a Christian”.
The word of God is described with various synonyms as the law, the testimony, the statutes, the commandment, judgement, etc. It shows in various works – in converting the soul, giving wisdom to man, in rejoicing the heart, enlightening the eyes and enduring forever. It warns the believer against sinning and there is great reward in keeping them.
The Word is God’s greatest treasure. He honors it more than His name. All things were created by the Word. The Word is spirit and life. It is a discerner of the intents of the heart. It gives eternal life. It is truth. It is fire and hammer that breaks the rock in pieces. It is health and medicine to the flesh. Faith comes by the Word.
The Word of God is the life of the believer. No wonder, a man of God counselled that all the true believers must “go with the Word, walk the Word, believe the Word, teach the Word, preach the Word, talk the Word, think the Word and act the Word”. That’s the only way to a truly victorious Christian life.
Thought For The Day: God’s word is the tonic that sustains life.
