Seeds of Destiny 16 March 2019 Daily Devotional by Dr. Paul Enenche
Topic: Profits of Dedication to the Word of God
The Word of God builds confidence, strength, energy, resilience and tenacity.
SCRIPTURE: But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. Matthew 4:4.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The Word of God builds confidence, strength, energy, resilience and tenacity.
It has been established that the Word of God is necessary in the life of a Christian as a mark of dedication to God. From our anchor Scripture, our Lord Jesus Christ makes it clear that we are designed to live by the Word of God (Matthew 4:4). God expects us to live by every Word that proceeds from His Mouth. This means, there is profit in reading and studying the Word.
Now, what are the profits of dedication to the Word of God?
i. The Word of God builds strength and energy
According to God’s Word, young men are strong because the Word of God abides in them (1 John 2:14). Beloved, you cannot be weak if you are Worded. You cannot be a weakling; that is, living in the state of being pursued by the devil, if you have the Word of God. This is because the Word of God builds confidence, strength, energy, resilience and tenacity.
ii. The Word of God builds hope
God’s Word keeps your hope alive. You are delivered from discouragement by the Word of God (Psalms 119:49, Psalm 119:81, Psalm 119:114, Psalm 130:5).
Beloved, every time you are in a situation where your mind begins to faint or shake, trust God for a Word out of Scripture. God can speak to you in different ways; at times, it may be a phrase like, ‘…no temptation has taken you…’ Then you can read the full text of the word from the Scripture in 1 Corinthians 10:31. As you read, something from the verse would make you rise up like a lion and your faith is built to face the battle.
Remember this: The Word of God builds confidence, strength, energy, resilience and tenacity.
