FAITH CAPSULE: There is no substitute for obeying the word of God.
The only way to obey the word of God is to be giving self to be hearing and doing the word of God.
So many hear the word but many are not able to listen and do the word of God.
So many quotes the word of God but not carry the word in the heart but on the head.
So many congregate in the name of God to hear the word but not to do the word of God.
So many hear the word of God but too occupied by the world, with no room to carry the word of God.
Are you a hearer of the word of God that constantly does the word of God
“But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. 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.” (James 1:22-23)
A disobedient to the word of God is like a car speeding in the dark with its headlights turned off. It will only take one moment for such disobedient to experience the consequence of painful consequences. How long would a driver continue to drive in the dark without the headlights on?
Are you hearing God’s word ignorantly?
Give self to the word of God to experience His unfailing direction.
Giving self to the word of God is giving God attention.
God is a jealous God who desires constant attention from His creation, Exodus 34:14, “For you shall worship no other god, for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God.”
Giving attention to God in His word is the evidence to hear and do His word, and to draw one to God as His. In the journey of life, without obedience in place, walking with the Lord shall not be possible.
Respond of Jesus to not walking in His word records, “Then His mother and brothers came to Him, and could not approach Him because of the crowd. And it was told Him by some, who said, Your mother and Your brothers are standing outside, desiring to see You. But He answered and said to them, My mother and My brothers are
Do you desire to see Him when you look for Him just as His mother and brothers went to look for Him?
Are you one that is ignoring the word of God?
There is a need to look for Him by calling on Him and making way to Him through consistent obedience to His word.
There is no substitute for obeying the word of God.
Every believer needs to observe the word of God by hearing and doing the word of God.
Prayer for today: Ask from God, by confessing your desire to live by His word for your deliverance and preservation.
