Joshua 1:7, 8
There is power in the word of God
In the word lie your victory and triumph, courage and hope for the future
Many people at their death bed never ask for theories or encyclopedia of life to be read to them but the word of God
The word is what sustains and keeps your life. Heb 1:1-3 msg, 1-3 Going through a long line of prophets, God has been addressing our ancestors in different ways for centuries. Recently he spoke to us directly through his Son. By his Son, God created the world in the beginning, and it will all belong to the Son at the end. This Son perfectly mirrors God, and is stamped with God’s nature. He holds everything together by what he says—powerful words!
everything in life responds to the word – God’s word
Whatever the word says the world obeys
When you build your life with the word of God, you can be sure of your tomorrow.
The word cannot be limited. Heb 4:12, Ps 107:20. The word you dig into, is the word that become flesh for you…John 1:14
When I was planning for my marital journey to start, in the place of place of prayer I heard God said to me “build this home on obedience and not experience” plenty experiences from well-meaning people on how to run your home, that are not in agreement with the word – The word of God. Build on obedience to the word concerning marriage – “husband love your wife as Christ loves the church…” Ten (10) years in the journey, it has been from glory to glory…Hallelujahs!
Every areas of your life can be built solely on the word of God. Joshua was been admonished to stay close to the word of God in order to make his ways successful. Moses made it to that point by following had after the word, the word was everything to Moses and now Joshua.
There is no private revelation of the scripture, whatever God says to one He says to all…Joshua was told to be bold and courageous in order for him to fulfill the mandate on his life.
You and I will do well to make the word our life building block if we desire a lasting building. We live in a word driven world…so; the word you stay on concerning the issue(s) of your life determines the outcome. But when you stay on the word of God you can be sure of a great and lasting tomorrow
Pro 18:20-21, when you familiarize yourself with the word, the word becomes your language…and remember life and death are in the power of tongue…the word will not fail in your life.
God’s power is revealed and experienced in His word.
