Topic: Understanding the Study of God’s Word [Seeds of Destiny 22 March 2019 Devotional]
The Word of God that is not studied cannot be revealed; and when the Word of God is not revealed, what it contains cannot be accessed.
SCRIPTURE: Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.” Matthew 4:4(NIV)
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The Word of God that is not studied cannot be revealed; and when the Word of God is not revealed, what it contains cannot be accessed.
From our anchor Scripture, Jesus makes it clear that a Christian does not live by bread alone but by the Word of God. The Word of God transmits the life of God into our lives in order for us to live like God and fulfil our destiny (John 6:63). The Word of God is key to deliverance from every captivity of the devil (Psalm 107:20).
We need the Word of God to access the life of God (John 1:5). Therefore, it is very important to study the Word of God. The study of the Word of God is important because the Word of God that is not studied cannot be revealed; and when the Word of God is not revealed, what it contains cannot be accessed.
Now, what does it mean to study the Word of Good?
To study the Word of God is to access the ways, thoughts, principles and precepts of God from His Book in order to walk better with Him.
Beloved, when you study God’s Word, you are trying to know what He likes, how He thinks, what His principles are, what you are forbidden from doing if you want to walk with Him, etc. This is what studying the Word of God is all about. To study God’s Word is not about knowing Scriptures to quote; it is about knowing the ways, thoughts and principles of God.
My counsel is, make up your mind to know what God likes and how He thinks when you study God’s Word; do not study the Word of God just to fulfil all righteousness.
Remember this: The Word of God that is not studied cannot be revealed; and when the Word of God is not revealed, what it contains cannot be accessed.
