I can not but think of how I was before I came to the knowledge of Jesus’s saving Grace. I was all over the place, my thoughts, my emotions, I did not have stability. I am not claiming to have everything together now emotionally and cognitive wise. But I am way ahead the state I was in 13 to 15 years back. I’m in a learning curve, in a tregictory of mastering my way ahead of a more stabilized emotional state.
Genesis 1, 2: And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. Weren’t we all in this phase in one instance, without void? Without meaning? Without purpose? Joy incomplete? Worth incomplete? I mean, yes we lose the physical, tangible existence of joy from time to time due to the fact that we let our joy materialize by having and seeing curcumstances going the way that we want them to go. It’s a real pitty that we let our focus on what really exists and matters to be diverted by what goes on around us.
Genesis 1, 3: And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. It’s really beautiful what God Keeps saying in this book of Genesis. He keeps “saying” and miraculously things keep going according to what He says. When there was no light, God in just His words, He puts things into perspective and existence. Romans 4, 18: Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be. Let’s take a look at Abraham the father of many nations, according to what God said unto him, he ceased the moment and held onto the promises God gave to him. He believed against all odds in the word of God. Believing in the word of God is a great priority that we turn to take for granted.
If only we could see how real the word of God is. Throughout the first book of Genesis, God keeps “saying” and putting things into existence. This just goes to proving how of a great essence the word of God is. Joshua 1, 8: This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. This is how valuable the word of God is. If only we could focus and uphold the word of God, overflowing abundance of life and peace would just pour down like a waterfall. Brand new waves of joy and jubilee would flood us.
Life could be something we can cope with regardless the ups and downs we face, only if we zeroed in on magnifying the word of God more than any other books. The Bible is the only greatest books of all time. Let us be resilient in adoring and upholding the word of God rather than any other book. Do not get me wrong, there are beautiful great authors of our times and as far as the first book ever written and published. I love to read books so much, other than the Bible, Christian books filled with glorifying the works of Jesus are my favorite books to read and one day I would love to debut my book and hopefully many more books. My emphasis is this, lets really magnify the word of God and make it the basis of our lives and the number one principle other than being more obsessed by other books more than we are obsessed about The Word of God.
I like what one favorite minister of mine says. Andrew Womack, he says that whenever he goes on interviews when asked what his favorite book is, he says it is the Bible. He says that there is no other books he reads more than he reads the Bible. He continues to say that we must value the word of God more than we value our own lives. He says that ever since he focused on meditating on the word of God and paying much attention on it, his life really changed for the better. He says that he could go to as far as spending 16 hours in just fixating and studying the word of God.
My point of core matter is that we put so much value in and focus in the word of God that it becomes part of us. Instead of forcing change, the word does a spontaneous change in us.
