The efficacy of the Word of God that we heard, meditated and received will not come into fruition until it is being acted in obedience. Truly, faith without works is dead. (James 2:17)
“Put the word into action. If you think hearing is what matters most, you are going to find you have been deceived.” (James 1:22 Voice)
There are too many to count reasons to be thankful today.
“You have multiplied, O Lord my God, your wondrous deeds and your thoughts toward us; none can compare with you! I will proclaim and tell of them, yet they are more than can be told.” (Psalms 40:5 ESV)
We all are aware that nowadays wherever we look, there are wars, famines, bush fires, shootings, recessions and a lot more that highly signify the schemes of darkness trying to fill the earth. But God Who is rich in mercy and abounding in love has a glorious plan in spite of, and that is to fill the earth with His glory as the water covers the sea, with you and I as His divine partakers and partners.
If we live by what we see and hear and reacts to it, we get overwhelmed by the cares of this world. But if we live by what we KNOW that comes from the Word of God which contains His promises that are YES and AMEN, we respond with hope arising within us which is a confident and joyful anticipation that what He Who promised is able and faithful to fulfill His spoken Word.
“Now may God, the inspiration and fountain of hope, fill you to overflowing with uncontainable joy and perfect peace as you trust in him. And may the power of the Holy Spirit continually surround your life with His super-abundance until you radiate with hope!” Romans 15:13 TPT
For me, 2020 will be a Year of Greater Glory!
It is so because as we continually, constantly and consistently meditate on the Word of God day and night, night and day, it transforms us into a better person day after day, night after night. When a revelation comes, it nourishes us and leaves us to be an improved versions of ourselves brought about by the power of God’s spoken word enveiled to us by the Holy Spirit.
Before the year ends, let us not forget the wondrous things that the Lord has done in and through our lives. But more to the works of His hands is the very thought of Who He has been, Who He is and Who He will forever be to you and to me. What are His revealed nature through His Word that we intimately experienced that caused us to KNOW HIM MORE and made us stronger, wiser, more patient, kinder, gentler, more generous, more loving and faithful, and eventually MAKE HIM KNOWN by the fruit of our lives.
“To know You is to experience a flowing fountain, drinking in Your life, springing up to satisfy. In Your light we receive the light of revelation.” (Psalm 36:9 TPT)
The greatest honor, pleasure privilege we have is to know Who our Heavenly Father is.
He is LOVE and because that is Who He is, He powerfully demonstrated His LOVE and gave us His only begotten and beLOVED Son, Jesus Christ, that we may experientially know how wonderfully LOVING HE is.
JOY is an expression of love.
When we know how loved we are by the Lord Jesus Christ, joy fills and floods our hearts and is expressed inevitably.
“You will show me the path of life and In His presence is fullness of JOY, at the right hand are pleasures forever more.” (Psalm 16:11)
What good does it do to us and for us if we murmur and complain? It only re-enforces our focus on our challenges rather than the bigness of our God Who is able and willing to see us through.
“Live a cheerful life, without complaining or division among yourselves. For then you will be seen as innocent, faultless, and pure children of God, even though you live in the midst of a brutal and perverse culture. For you will appear among them as shining lights in the universe, offering them the words of eternal life.” Philippians 2:14-15 TPT
