Father we bow before You, we worship You, we give You Praise, adoration to Your Holy Name! Who is like Thee Father!
How can I thank You for all the good things You have done for me, my family, ministry and career! I am entirely grateful to You. If it had not been the Lord who was on our side,…. When men rose up against us: then They had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us: then the water had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul: then the proud waters had gone over our soul. Blessed be the Lord, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth. Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped. Our help is in the Name of the Lord, Who made heaven and earth (Ps 124:1-8). Amen! Alleluia.
Beloved, how are doing? Our God is good to us His children, He made us for His good Pleasure glory alleluia to His Holy Name! It a brand new day, few days to the end of the month and I know that there may be many outstanding still you are trusting and believing that God to accomplish for you before the end of the month. We are all in it together and I know that He will do it; for He does say what He cannot do nor does He need any permission from any quarter to do it. Praise the Lord!
We discussed so much on searching the scripture and its impacts in our lives but there is still so much untouched. If you want to live an obedient life, you must stay connected to the manual else you will go astray. Praise the Lord!
Then how do you stay connected? We mentioned it in yesterday teaching by “paying attention to God’s Word, internalize it, meditate on it, and obey it, and the resultant effects is that it will bring life and healing to our souls. Praise the Lord!
Today, we will be considering further the impact of the scripture in our lives. The Scripture feeds our soul, it mention yesterday bit today by the grace of God we will be having an in depth study on it.
Our bodies have an appetite that reminds us to keep them alive by feeding them. What is your cue to feed your feed your Spirit? For our relationship with God to grow stronger, we must feed it. God’s Word is that food. Just like a baby cries out for milk, a Spirit made alive through faith in Christ has an appetite, too. But it is so easy to distract ourselves from being in tune with hunger and thirst. Entertainment, busyness, even God things like family and friends can get in the way of maintaining consistent Bible study.
You have to choose to make feeding your spiritual growth the top priority in your day, instead of just checking it off and going on through your day, go slowly and really internalize it. Build your appetite for the bible by mixing up your habits (Matt 4:4, 1 Pet 2:2, Heb 5:11-14). A reading plan like this will also help you in studying your bible. Go for the version in your language or another language/ translation you are comfortable with. Praise the Lord!
Scripture impacts Wisdom in us, King Solomon was granted any request he could think of, he wisely asked for wisdom. We all need wisdom in every area of our lived, and the world has lots of wisdom to offer. But in most cases we find wisdom that comes from the logic, reasoning, the values of this world does not line up with God’s wisdom. Every time we pick up the Bible to read it, we can take just a moment and ask God for Wisdom (Prov 2:2-6).
The Scripture refines us. God’s standards of holiness is impossible to attain without the power of His grace. All through the old testaments, God’s people attempted to follow the rigorous rules about washing and maintaining cleanliness. It is hard to imagine how much work went in to just staying clean in those ancient cultures, and how futile their efforts must have sometimes seemed.
To see pure, white laundry with no stains or wrinkles must have been rare indeed. In we see all of that labour and effort transferred from us to Christ (Eph 5:22-27). It is Jesus and His work for us on the cross that can achieve that kind of perfection. And it is through constant flow of God’s Words of truth and grace washing over our hearts that helps us so much. The Cross makes that clear. But that not the end of His works In our lives.
Let get more from below the message below how Christ lived out His life while on earth:
“They are they which testify of Me.” John 5:39
Jesus Christ is the Alpha and Omega of the Bible. He is the constant theme of its sacred pages; from first to last they testify of Him.
At the creation we at once discern Him as one of the sacred Trinity; we catch a glimpse of Him in the promise of the woman’s seed; we see Him typified in the ark of Noah; we walk with Abraham, as He sees Messiah’s day; we dwell in the tents of Isaac and Jacob, feeding upon the gracious promise; we hear the venerable Israel talking of Shiloh; and in the numerous types of the law, we find the Redeemer abundantly foreshadowed.
Prophets and kings, priests and preachers, all look one way—they all stand as the cherubs did over the ark, desiring to look within, and to read the mystery of God’s great propitiation. Still more manifestly in the New Testament we find our Lord the one pervading subject.
It is not an ingot here and there, or dust of gold thinly scattered, but here you stand upon a solid floor of gold; for the whole substance of the New Testament is Jesus crucified, and even its closing sentence is bejewelled with the Redeemer’s name.
We should always read Scripture in this light; we should consider the word to be as a mirror into which Christ looks down from heaven; and then we, looking into it, see His face reflected as in a glass—darkly, it is true, but still in such a way as to be a blessed preparation for seeing Him as we shall see Him face to face.
This volume contains Jesus Christ’s letters to us, perfumed by His love. These pages are the garments of our King, and they all smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia.
Scripture is the royal chariot in which Jesus rides, and it is paved with love for the daughters of Jerusalem. The Scriptures are the swaddling bands of the holy child Jesus; unroll them and you find your Saviour. The quintessence of the word of God is Christ.
Beloved, the above showed us the contents of Jesus even in the Scripture. We must also follow suit. How? The Scripture guides us even as it guides our Lord Jesus (Ps 119:18). God cares about even the smallest details of your life, not just the big decision like which Job to purse or to marry, but the small steps that make up the a day? Does God care about those? God has such wonderful guidance available in the huge volumes of His Word. Even those who dedicate their entire education and career to studying God’s Word still uncover new things in it throughout their lives.
Every part of that our lives will take can be influenced and guided by God’s word. (Ps 119:105). Move forward trusting in God’s Word to guide you. And as you take each step, reach back into His word to find the step after that. God may never choose to show Thou the destination or even the next leg of your journey but He is faithful to light up your next step as you move forward and take it.
May God help us to see what He is accomplishing in our lives in Jesus Name. Another 365 days has has gone by again in my life dearly beloved and I am standing in Awe of God’s faithfulness in my life and the ministry. Thank you for being there, thank you for your prayers and I believe we are impacting your life positively. Thank God for my life and God bless you.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
