The same message can be read from God’s Word but with two very different results. Hebrews 4:2 - For we also have had the good news proclaimed to us, just as they did; but the message they heard was of no value to them, because they did not share the faith of those who obeyed.
God’s Word is powerful but it has to be accepted by faith in order to change you in to the person God desires for you to be. I love this statement from Rick Warren, The Bible can keep you from sin, but sin can keep you from the Bible.
It is so true! The only verse in the Bible that promises prosperity and success is Joshua 1:8 - Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.
Do you what is necessary? Knowing and obeying God’s Word! It takes time and dedication but the rewards are out of this world.
Be wise today and always – bring the value of God’s Word alive in your life.
