“Jesus said that if we abide in him, and have his words abide in us, we can ask the Father whatever we wish, and it will be done for us. Therefore, we need to get into the word of God and get the word of God into us.”
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. God’s word is the headlamp of my vehicle.
On this journey of life, it is his word that illuminates the road ahead. The ancient writings of Scripture are inspired by the Holy Spirit. God’s word and God’s Spirit work together; the sword of the Spirit is the word of God. The word of God confirms the actions of the Spirit and the Spirit activates the word of God. Therefore, every decision in my life, every opportunity faced, every move I make needs to be underscored by Scriptures and driven by the Lord Holy Spirit.
This is why I love the Bible. I have been reading the Bible, every day, for the best part of 50 years. In the beginning, I could not understand what I read. The Scriptures seemed filled with confusing terms and unusual anecdotes. However, even in my early days while reading the Bible, often a verse would bounce off the page and cause my heart to skip a beat. The Holy Spirit, who is the God of the Bible, was shining his beam on my road like a voice behind me saying, “This is the way, walk in it.”
Jesus said that if we abide in him, and have his words abide in us then we can ask the Father whatever we wish, and it will be done for us that we may produce good fruit. Therefore, to be productive in life, we need to get into the word of God and get the word of God into us. We need to read it, pray, meditate on it, believe it, confess it and live it.
