DO THE WORD


DO THE WORD

James 1:22-25 (NKJV) But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. 23 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; 24 for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. 25 But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.

God does not want the Bible to become just a book of rules and regulations.  He wants His Word to be our life, to be our strength, and to be our everything.  That is why it is so important to not let the Bible be just a book we read, but a book that we live.  God’s Word is truth, and everything else in life has to bow to it.

When I make a decision in my life to let God’s Word take first place and to do what it says, it changes everything!  It changes my attitude, it changes the way I see things, it changes the way I treat my wife, my kids, and even my animals.  It takes me from this low-life to a greater life; an overcoming life in Him.  God and His Word are one.  It is the perfect law of freedom, and as I take time to look into it and do it, it has amazing affects on my life.

Many read God’s Word as a book, or history, or inspiration.  We need to read God’s Word so that we can be doers of it.  Then we will truly be blessed in life.  Then we are building our house on a solid rock, and not on sand.  And when the storms of life come, and we know that they will come, we might get bruised and shaken, but we know that we will still be standing.

So today, look in His Word, drink deeply, and when a verse or passage hits you, ask your Father how you can be a doer of that Word.  As you do this daily, you will see such a change in yourself that you are going to wonder if this is really you!

CONFESSION: I am a doer of the Word and not just a hearer.  God’s Word has first place in my life, and because of His Word, when storms come, I will be victorious in Christ Jesus!
