UNDERSTAND AND SPEAK THE WORD
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge… (Hosea 4:6).
There’re Christians whose experiences in life are an antithesis of their faith and the Word of God. For example, they may believe that as Christians, they’re not supposed to be oppressed by Satan, yet they experience continual satanic attacks and manipulations. They believe they aren’t supposed to be sick or have infirmities in their bodies,
yet they’re hardly in good health. Something is wrong.
There’re two important areas to examine in dealing with such
inconsistencies. First is the accurate understanding of the Word. In
Matthew 13, Jesus emphasized the importance of understanding when
He taught on the parable of the sower (Matthew 13:3-9).
In His interpretation of the parable, He explained that the seeds that
fell by the wayside represent those who hear the Word of God and don’t understand it. Due to their lack of understanding, Satan comes
immediately and steals the Word from their hearts (Matthew 13:19).
An accurate understanding of the Word is so important. When you understand the Word, you’re able to apply it rightly to produce results for you. Proverbs 4:7 says, “…with all thy getting get understanding.”
The second thing is your communication; the words you speak. If
your words are inconsistent with the Word of God, your life, which is the outward manifestation of your words, will also be inconsistent. The
Psalmist said, “…my tongue is the pen of a ready writer” (Psalm 45:1).
Your tongue is the pen that writes God’s Word on your heart. What you
say is written on your heart, and out of that abundance, your mouth
Always study and listen to the Word; bombard your mind and your
spirit with the Word, and then speak accordingly! Your life will be the
manifestation of the Word. Praise God!
It’s given unto me to understand the Word and the mysteries of the
Kingdom. Even now, God’s Word is effective in me, producing what
it says. I’m walking in glory and excellence, manifesting the graces
of God to my world, in victory, success and advancement. Hallelujah!
