How can reading the Word of God really change me and cause God’s life to come alive inside me? quite difficult to understand, but I know it works. I don’t understand how you can put a tiny seed in the ground and have an entire stalk of corn come up with ears of corn on it and reproduce a hundredfold. Nobody fully understands it, but it works, and I tell you that this works. Reading God’s Word and letting it begin to saturate you changes your attitude, your experience, and your perceptions.
Your heart was made for the Word of God––it really was. God’s Word was created to be placed in your heart. Just taking a Bible and holding it close, putting it on your coffee table, or carrying it with you doesn’t have any virtue. It doesn’t release power in your life. You have to take the Word, make it a seed, and plant it in your heart. When you do that, your heart is designed to bring forth fruit of itself. It will automatically change the way things work in your life.
Many times people do the same thing with God today and say, “God, why haven’t you done something?” God has done something. He’s provided everything we need through the atonement of the Lord Jesus. He has produced His Word and given us all these seeds. It’s our job to sow them into our hearts. He’s given us the Scripture, and it’s our job to take the seed, put it in our hearts, and meditate on it until it releases life. But the disciples wanted to wake Jesus up and say, “Why don’t you do something?” He got up, rebuked the wind and the waves, there was a calm. Then He turned around and said to His disciples, “Why are you so fearful? How is it you have no faith?” He didn’t say, “Hey, guys, I’m sorry. I should have done something.” No, His part was to teach them the Word and give them promises, and it was their part to take the Word and believe the promises.
Isaiah 51: 1-2
“Listen to Me, you who follow after righteousness,
You who seek the Lord:
Look to the rock from which you were hewn,
And to the hole of the pit from which you were dug.
2 Look to Abraham your father,
And to Sarah who bore you;
For I called him alone,
And blessed him and increased him.”
In conclusion, when you are filled with the word, I am certain that every other thing follows right after. Lets I forget, its not our (man’s) responsibility to fight the devil, its the word in us that does that. when you remember that verse that says “Resist the Devil, and he will flee from you”, you certainly are covered!
And that Word is JESUS!
