Title: PRACTICE IT
But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selvesJames 1:22
God’s word is meant to be the best thing that happens to you above everything else. Either you’re thinking it or you’re talking it or you’re walking it. Whatever you’re doing with it, the Word is targeted at stabilizing you in the center point of Heaven’s reality. The word of God is bank to God’s power. Access to it is access to Divine power. It has within itself the ability to give life to anything it comes upon. – 1Pet. 1:25, Gen. 1:1-3, John 1:1-4, Heb. 4:12
But you see, this powerful weapon of the Spirit, as it is, only releases power for us when we put it to work, that is, when we practice/do it. It is not enough to know about the word. It is not enough to know the letters. God wants us walking in the experience of the effect of the Spirit of the word. The mere letters are lifeless. It is the Spirit behind the letters that can give life. – James 1:22, 2Cor. 3:6, John 6:63
We are in a day and age where people want someone to do the work for them. We claim being busy as an excuse. But this shouldn’t be. I can teach you the word, but you have to work the word yourself. Something about the word is that if you don’t work it, it won’t work for you. There is nothing like the encounter you get from the word yourself. No one can give or take that away from you.
You may not know how to stay long in the word yet, don’t be discouraged, keep developing the habit of staying or spending time with the Word of God. God rewards hunger for his word and righteousness (read the Beatitudes in Matthew 5). Yes He does. The Christianity you don’t practice is the Christianity you can’t live. It is all about practicing/doing.
Why don’t you make up your mind today to be a labourer in God’s word? Make up your mind to develop the habit of constantly hearing, believing, talking and walking the Word of God. It starts with one faith step then another. It is in this deliberate ‘walk’ and faith upon God that His ability is revealed. Remember, Peter wasn’t walking on water that day, He was walking on the Word ‘Come’ that proceeded from the Master’s mouth.
Do what you’ve heard, practice the Word. You too will walk on water.
