We Need The Living Word!!

As I’ve been sharing with you over the recent weeks, the Lord has been leading me to minister heavily to His people about the Word.

I truly hope that it is BLESSING you!!

Like never before, the Lord desires for His children to get into the Word more as many of us within the Body of Christ have been out of balance.

We’ve run to the prophets more than we’ve run to the Lord…

We’ve been seeking the spiritual leaders more than we’ve attempted to seek His face…

As believers, we are in a time where we MUST make a decision to get back to the basics!! Though recent times have been trying and dark and have left many to seek wisdom from the leaders, it’s time to get back into the Word for ourselves!

The Word LIVES!

Although today’s message won’t be long, it’ll surely be powerful! It is my hope that it encourages you all the more to RUN BACK to the Word of God! We’ve been given the most precious gift by the Father –one full of revelation, wisdom, instruction, and comfort in all seasons of life. The Word is SO powerful and does so much for those who believe and take heed to what was written long before.

“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.” – 2 Timothy 3:16

Did you know…                                                  

The word “inspiration” comes from the Latin word inspiratus, which means “to breathe into, inspire”. In English, it means “the drawing of air into the lungs”.

What does this MEAN? The Word of God is LIVING and ACTIVE! Its pages are filled with active wisdom and instruction!! This goes to show just how POWERFUL the Word is!

Rely on The Word

While on the prayer call, I shared some powerful scriptures and teaching on the Word. Some of the following scriptures have also been extracted from an article by Joyce Meyer, sharing “40 Things the Word of God Does For You”.  I encourage you to read and meditate over them, as I believe that they will bless your life! Here’s a reminder of just what the Word does for us as believers:

The Word Revives Us! (Psalm 119:25)

Be encouraged that it’s the Word that will soften your heart! The Word heals and delivers us all and is like nourishment to the soul. The Spirit of the Lord graciously pours out supernatural strength upon His people. So even as you find yourself spending time studying the Word of God and meditating on it, you will find the strength that you need! I challenge you to set some time aside in the morning to get in the Word, throughout the day, and even at night. Meditate on a few verses and allow them to minister to your soul. Dive deeply into the Word in this season like never before and there you will find the precious guidance, comfort, and the very heart of the Father!

JESUS IS THE WORD! (John 1:14, Revelation 19:13)

Here’s A Word of Encouragement For You!

Everything that you need is in Heaven! Every answer that you seek is found in the Word! It is time out for believers running to the spiritual leaders more than the Word of the Lord. It is my prayer that today’s message finds you well and encourages you to get back to the basics of Truth.

May you be guided and directed by the light of Word in a dark world…

May you recognize who the Lord is, the beauty of His glory, and the power of His strength…

May your heart be lifted to the Father, that you may be kept in perfect peace with your mind stayed on Him!

 And it is so! Amen.
