Putting God’s Word Into Practice Brings Him Into Your Daily Life
So mightily grew the word of God and prevailed (Acts 19:20).
Acting on the Word of God brings God into the details of your daily life. Then said the Lord to me, You have seen well, for I am alert and active, watching over My word to perform it (Jeremiah 1:12- Amplified). Acting on the Word causes God to watch over your actions! He pays attentions and gets involved when you act like His Word is important to you! Impossible things become possible.
The Holy Spirit is attracted to the Word. He’s called the Spirit of Truth (John 14:17). When we show our love for Jesus by walking in obedience to the Word, the Holy Spirit is pleased!
The Holy Spirit takes the Word that we feed on in our personal times and reminds us of what we’ve heard. But when the Father sends the Advocate as my representative—that is, the Holy Spirit—he will teach you everything and will remind you of everything I have told you (John 14:26).
The major ambition of the Holy Spirit is to help us act, think, respond, love, speak, and live like Jesus does. As He is, so are we in this world (1 John 4:17). Be imitators of God (Ephesians 5:1). That’s why it’s so important to adhere to the Word. When we do, the Holy Spirit empowers us to love in negative situation, to encourage others when fear seems to rule a situation, and to expect the best when circumstances turn sour.
Where the Word is esteemed, the Holy Spirit manifests to bring it to pass. He sent His Word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions (Psalm 107:20). For healing to manifest, it’s important to say what God says, and as much as possible, act like you’re healed by believing you receive. This brings the Holy Spirit into the situation with your body. He is the one who materializes the healing that Jesus purchased for us 2000 years ago. But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you (Romans 8:11).
Acting on the Word brings you into realm of the limitless God who is able to do infinitely more than we can ask or think! I’ve been walking with Jesus now for over 40 years, and I have all kinds of examples of things that should not work out suddenly working out! And it’s because in my weakness and hard place I chose to act on what God says. God’s word works!
Take time today to meditate on the Word. Let it roll over and over in your mind. Speak the Word. Say what God says about your circumstance even if it doesn’t seem as though it is true. Intertwine the Word into your work, your family, and your leisure. Become conscious of what the Word says about what you’re involved in today. If you do, and act and speak in line with the Word, then the Holy Spirit will aid you with His ability, and the Father will watch over you and do amazing things. Magnify the Word!
