“The unfolding (entrance) of your words gives light;
It gives understanding to the simple.”
Notice the words of the psalmist in the verse above; it lets us know that it is the entrance of God’s word that gives light. That means the Word has to get into your spirit! The Word in you, mingled with your spirit and mixed with faith, is what God requires. It will change your life. When the Word of God gets into you, it brings you light.
With the Word in your spirit you are sure to make progress in life. It’s not just about listening to your favourite bible teacher on TV, DVD, CD, or whatever format you use; it’s more than that! You need to have the message inside your heart. That’s what makes the difference.
If you took a seed and kept it in a refrigerator, you will not get a crop. If you took that seed and put it into a bank, it still would not produce a crop, because that is not the correct environment for it to grow and produce a crop.
Your spirit is the recipient for the Word of God, that’s where the light of God is. Proverbs 20:27 puts it like this, “The spirit is the candle of the LORD, searching all the inward parts of the belly.” Some people can quote many scriptures by heart, but the scriptures don’t do much for them from inside because it is in their heads, not in their hearts.
Your spirit must digest the Word until it affects the way of your thinking and it gives you a new mind-set.
If the message, the Word of God, hasn’t changed your mind, then it hasn’t entered you and that means its influence and impact on your life is limited.
Get the Word of God inside you today, now, and it will remain in you, it will produce what it says. It will be in you a vital force that causes you to live accordingly. Amen?
