Art of Living #44

Åґ☂ ◎ḟ ʟ☤√ḯη❡ #44 : "And we also [especially] thank God continually for this, that when you received the message of God [which you heard] from us, you welcomed it not as the word of [mere] men, but as it truly is, the Word of God, which is effectually at work in you who believe [exercising its superhuman power in those who adhere to and trust in and rely on it]." (1Th 2:13, AMP).
Ѧ℘☺﹩☂◎łḯ¢ €ϰ℘øüηḓ : The Bible says that "the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart." (Heb 4:12). Even though many christians forget that the word of God is loaded with power to discern the thoughts and intents of the human heart, those who realize its power are those who start to enjoy the benefits of the word of God in their daily lives. We will never ever be able to spiritually grow in our lives without the word of God. To be really spiritual is to get skilled in the word of righteousness in such a way that we will supernaturally be able to discern the voice of God that comes directly to our spirit-man, it is the meat of the revelation of the word of God that comes from the throne of God (Heb 5:13). See a baby can only be fed with milk and it need to grow more and more to become mature in order to take the solid food. Solid food to the babies may cause indigestion or even it may cause severe stomach ache and further complications. The same thing applies in the spiritual world. If we have not not tasted the good word of God and through it have not experienced the powers of the heavenly age to come (Heb 6:5), then we will be a powerless puppet christians before our enemy Satan and his demons. THE VOICE OF GOD KEEPS US UPDATED OF ALL THE ENEMIES DECEPTIVE PLANS AGAINST US.

One thing we must all understand is that God never stops to speak to us (Matt 4:4). It may be through different ways according to our spiritual capacity God speaks to us, but it is we who are unspiritual many times fail to hear and understand God. The word of God clearly says, "14 For God may speak in one way, or in another, yet man does not perceive it. 15 In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls upon men, while slumbering on their beds, 16 Then He opens the ears of men, and seals their instruction. 17 In order to turn man from his deed, and conceal pride from man, 18 He keeps back his soul from the Pit, and his life from perishing by the sword." (Job 33:14-18). In other words, God knows that if we fail to understand the word of God and thus use it to discern and destroy the deception of Satan in our soulish heart, the same sword of the Spirit which is the word of God will one day judge our wicked motives to humble us for etenity as a poor rewardless person or if someone is not saved it will send them directly to the pit where godless wicked souls will suffer without God because of not believing the word of God when they lived on earth (1 Cor 4:5; 1 Thess 2:4; John 12:48; Eph 6:17; Luke 16:31). SO ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN OUR CHRISTIAN LIFE IS TO USE THE WORD OF GOD TO REASON AND EXERCISE THE SPRITUAL SENSES IN US TO DISCERN BOTH GOOD AND EVIL (Heb 5:14). THE VOICE OF SELF, GOD AND THE DEVILS CAN BE IDENTIFIED IN OUR SOUL ONLY THROUGH REASONING OF THE WORD OF GOD THROUGH THE SPIRIT OF GOD WHO WORKS IN US CONSTANTLY WHEN WE KEEP FEEDING OURSELVES WITH THE WORD OF GOD PERPETUALLY. When God speaks to our spirit-man, it is up to us to identify His Voice through our spiritual reasoning senses which we can develop through using the word of God constantly. God and His word are one. When what we hear is inline with the word of God, it is the voice of God to us. 

The word of God works powerfully only in those who believe it, adhere to and trust in and rely on it constantly in their thoughts. It is God who quickens and sends his word in the present now-realm of our existence to meet all our needs through the men and women of God who are his ambassadors and messengers. So we must hear the word of God from them as though it has come from God and we should believe it immediately to exercise its power in us. Those who receive the word of God with meekness will experience the power of the word of God to save all the sin affected areas of their soul (James 1:21). Sin shall not have dominion over them because they will have believed the word of God from the bottom of their hearts (Rom 6:14). Day after day they will develop a godly beautiful mind inside them to experience life at its best. They will be able to perpetually experience God's power as a believer and will be thankful for God's deliverance and will be praising all the time which will defeat the evil schemes of the devil and his demons that works against them (John 10:10). Believing is like a farmer taking the seed which has the power and potential to sprout, and then sow it on the ground. THE WORD OF GOD WHEN IT IS BELIEVED AND SOWN IN OUR HEARTS HAS THE POTENTIAL TO RELEASE ITS POWER AND BLESS US TO BE A BLESSING TO MANY. Are you ready? You are asking me for what, to believe the word of God and experience its power to make us grow spiritually day by day to reach the full age maturity very soon.

"The inspiration of the sacred Scriptures, as the very world of God, is manifest by their majesty, their purity; the consent of all their parts, by their light and power to convince and convert sinners, to edify and comfort believers, and to build them up in the character that prepares for full salvation." — Thomas Boston
