We continue our study this week in 40 Days In The Word.
How does God’s Word change me?
3. IT ACTIVATES MY FAITH
Faith is Word-activated. The promises of God raise our expectations!
Rom. 10:17“Faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the Word of Christ.”
Ever heard the Word taught and felt courage well up inside you?
Don’t forget that sometimes it’s a pacing growth like in Exodus 23:29-30, I will not give you the whole land in a single year, because you wouldn’t be able to handle it. Instead, you will overtake it little by little until YOU have GROWN enough to take possession of it all! God will help us grow in our faith through obedience.
4. IT STIMULATES MY GROWTH
Inheritance equals getting all that rightly belongs to you as God’s child! The Bible and it’s instruction is part of a believer’s inheritance.
Acts 20:32, I commit you to God and to the Word of his grace, which can build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.”
2 Timothy 3:16-17, “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”
TEACHING shows you the path to walk on - REBUKING shows how you got off the path - CORRECTING –shows you how to get back on and stay on the right path. That’s a great inheritance.
Be wise today and always – let the Word change you.
