God’s Word: Your Ultimate Source Of Blessings

Hello Friends, Our warmest greetings to you. May the fullness of God’s blessings be upon you and your family. Kindly join us to share a verse of God’s word.

God’s Words As A Source Of Blessings

Consider the scripture in Luke 11:28: “Blessed are those who hear the word of God and keep it” This simple life-changing statement profoundly affects our success in life. The statement says that those who learn, understand and live by God’s words, are blessed by God. These blessings cover all aspects of life, and as such, those who are blessed, are prospered spiritually and materially; including ministry, wealth, marriage, family,

relationships, carrier, etc! There, is no limit to the extent of the blessing.

How To Receive The Blessings

To receive these blessings, we must know the words of God and live by them. To do this successfully, we only have to take the following three steps:

1. Learn and understand what the words of God say. (Matt. 13:23)

2. Let the words abide or live in you. (John 15:7-8)

3. Apply the words to your daily life.

In practice, these steps can be difficult to achieve because of satan’s opposition, and the unwillingness of our human nature to do good. But God has provided ways to make it easy to implement these steps, and these are found in Deut. 11:18-21) and other scriptures as well:

“Therefore you shall lay up these words of mine in your heart and in your soul, and bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as front lets between your eyes. You shall teach them to your children, speaking of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. And you shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates, that your days and the days of your children may be multiplied.”

Here is a summary of what is being said:

1. Bind the words as a sign on your hand.

2. Tie them as front lets between your eyes.

3. Write them on your doorposts and your gates.

4. Teach them to your children (and others).

5. Speak of them anywhere that you are.

6. Put the words in your heart and in your soul.

Practices used to study, grasp, assimilate and apply God’s words to your life. These sound a little unreal, but they are true: They are exercises designed to help you invest seriously in learning and understanding the words of God; to the extent that these words stick to your heart. They are symbolic representations of real and serious practices used to study, grasp, assimilate and apply God’s words to everyday events of life.

Binding the words to the hand, and between the eyes, and writing them on the doorposts and gates, are but ways that help you to remember, study and meditate on the words of God till the words are permanently impressed on your heart. All that you need to do is to make a serious effort to study the words daily; making sure that you turn the words over in your mind to understand what is the meaning of what you are reading. And then you apply these words to your life by doing what the words say: If the words say give, then give. If it says forgive, then you forgive. And if it says pray, then you pray. That’s all! If the Spirit of God is in you, you should have no problem in investing quality time and

efforts in doing these things daily.

Exercises that impress God’s words into your mind, heart, soul, and spirit

In contrast, teaching the words, speaking of them always and putting them in your heart, are not symbolic at all. You are to practice these steps just as they are written. They are exercises that drive the words of God to register and remain in your mind, heart, soul, and spirit. The last exercise is called, Godly Meditation, as opposed to demonic meditation, in which a person blanks out his mind in the hope of merging with a so called homogeneous spirit god (the person is actually exposing himself to demons who can easily enter him). Godly meditation is the process of turning the words of God over and over again in your heart. As a result, your mind, heart, soul and spirit permanently retain these words; making the words to abide or live in you. The words of God that abide in you is what drives you to do what it says (Jeremiah 20:9). As such, you not only have heard the words of God, but you have understood it and kept it. By so doing, you have meet the conditions required by Jesus to bless you: “Blessed are those who hear the word of God and keep it!” (Luke 11:28); “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you” (John 15:7). When God gives you whatever you ask for, will this not resolve all the material problems that you now have and shall ever have in life? It is worth noting!

Remain blessed!!!
