WORD – RULED MIND
“For ever, O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven”. Psalm 119:89.
The word of God is the foundation for a successful Christian life. We are commanded to meditate on it day and night ( Joshua 1:8), so that we might know more of God and grow to maturity. The Word of God is the master key of life. It is able to open or lock any door. There is nothing life demands that is not obtainable from it. How much of it we are able to connect with , is what defines our destinies.
IT CARRIES GOD’S POWER
The word of God is God ( John 1:1).This shows how powerful the word of God is. The word of God can do anything that God can do. When you think of the God who divided the Red Sea, begin to think of His word that can do the same. When you pour your heart over the greatness of God’s power to heal and deliver, begin to realise that His word can do the same ( Psalm 107:20).
Everything visible and invisible is subject to the power of God’s word. Angels hear the word of God and they fly swiftly to carry out strange assignments. Demons hear the word and they give up their hiding places. Satan hears the word and he feels the terror of the everlasting fire. Barren wombs hear the word and they open to receive children. Death hears the word and it release its captives. Even, God does not live above His word ( Psalm 138:2).
The master key of the spoken word can change your life immediately. At creation., God commanded things to happen and they happened accordingly. Jesus commanded Lazarus to come forth and immediately life returned to his body. Joshua commanded the sun to stand still, immediately the sun remained on the same spot. Peter and John commanded the lame man at the beautiful gate to rise and walk, immediately, supernatural strength entered into him. Ezekiel spoke to the dry bones by the word of God, immediately they became an army of people. The words of God are powerful ( lsaiah 55:11).
THE SEVEN SYMBOLS USED TO ILLUSTRATE THE WORD OF GOD.
1. A SWORD: The Bible is a Word that convicts the hearer ( Hebrew4:12)
2. A HAMMER: The Bible is powerful and breaks the resistance of the hearer ( Jeremiah 23:29)
3. A SEED: The Bible is a living Word regenerating the hearer ( 1 Peter1:23)
4. A MIRROR: The Bible is a faithful Word, revealing the individual to himself ( James 1:23-25).
5. A FIRE: The Bible is a burning Word, consuming the dross in the hearer (Jeremiah 23:29).
6.A LAMP: The Bible is an illuminating Word guiding the believer day-by-day ( Psalm 119:105).
7. FOOD: The Bible is ,nourishing Food, feeding the soul ( 1 Peter 2:2).
For the word of God to gain access into you, first pay attention to it( meditation ) If you don’t pay attention to the word of God, you may never take delivery of the keys that operate the issues of life ( Matthew 16:19). It is your staff of office as a redeemed child of God, designed to establish your status of dominion and validate your authority over the enemy. The knowledge of the word puts you in command and gives you mastery over the issues of life.
I pray that the Lord will give you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him in Jesus Name. You are a king(Revelation 1:6) .It is your time and season to reign …….go and posses your possessions in Jesus Name.
God bless you……Pastor Yemi Hassan.
