Applying the Word is Power

Got this sent to me thought you might like it.

In God’s plan for every believer is peace, hope, and a good
future (Jeremiah. 29:11). It is His will that we live abundant
and prosperous lives but the enemy will try to destroy every
ounce of peace and hope we have by bringing doubt into our minds.

If you are experiencing doubt and discouragement in your life
right now, it is because the devil is robbing you of the
blessings that God has for you. The devil is a thief and it is
his only mission to steal, kill, and destroy, but Jesus came that
we may have life and may have it more abundantly (John 10:10).

Did you notice the word “may”? Webster’s Dictionary describes
“may” as permission, opportunity, perhaps, and possibly.

God has done His part by sending His Son to die on the cross, not
only to save us from our sins, but also to give us life
abundantly. Whether we have life abundantly or not depends on us!

God has given us His Word, which is our roadmap for success
(Joshua 1:8). His Word is forever established in heaven, and
whatsoever we shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven and
whatsoever we shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven
(Matthew 16:19). What are you binding and loosing in your life?

As Christians, it is our duty to know God’s Word and what it says
about us. We must exercise our faith daily by speaking it over
our circumstances if we want to see positive changes come about.

Remember, the Word is like a two-edged sword. It cuts one
direction to bring about the changes we desire and another
direction to halt the devil. Just as Jesus used the Word to
defeat Satan in the dessert (Mathew 4:1-11), so should we.

Jesus knew the Word, and He applied it. Obviously, you must know
the Word before you can apply it! It has been said that knowledge
is power. That’s not true. Applied knowledge is power.

I hope you are currently involved in a bible study group
or have a bible-reading program established for yourself. You
have got to know and apply the Word of God to live a victorious
life and experience all the good that God has for you!
