THE WORD WORKS!
Deut 8:1-3b...To get to your promised land, your ability to internalise, obey and carry out His commandments must stand sure. The WORD is the only thing that WORKS! The only assurance you have for your growth, enlargement and multiplication is the WORD of God! It is the guarantee for GOOD success! The success of the world is not enduring, it can't stand the test of time. It would FAIL!
See vs.1, "Every commandment which I command you today you must be careful to OBSERVE that you may live & multiply, and go in and possess the land of which the Lord swore to your fathers". It does not matter the kind of prophecy over your life, for it to manifest, you have to OBSERVE His word. God Himself promised the land but the possession is on the premise that they OBSERVE His commandment (WORD).
To OBSERVE is; to regard with attention. Do you regard the WORD of God? Do you give the word your attention? To OBSERVE is to learn. Is the word your teacher? Do you learn how to live and conduct your life from the word of God? To OBSERVE is to watch. Is the word your watchword? To OBSERVE is to keep or maintain in one's action. Do you keep the word in your heart? Are your actions and conducts based upon the word of God? To OBSERVE is to obey, comply with or conform to. Do you obey, comply with or conform to the word of God?
See vs. 3b..."That He might make you know that man shall not live by bread alone; but man lives by every WORD that PROCEEDS from the mouth of the LORD". Halleluyah!
PROCEEDS (present continuous) if you don't speak the language of God (which is His word), you will be paralyse by history. It is the proceeding word that guarantees your distinction in life. When the word comes it check mates your adversary.
Friends, it is the word that closes an old, and opens a new. The word is about your destiny. It is what predicts God's purpose for you. I challenge you today to take responsibility for the word. It is a personal journey.
Pray with me; Father, let your word work in me!
