TEXT: MATTHEW 7: 24-25
James 1:25 But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.
Put the word of God into practice; live by it. The Bible says if you do, the rain will descend, the wind will blow and the flood will come against you but you will stand. You will stand because you have the strength of God in your heart, in your life.
That spiritual commitment and indefatigable energy God has put in you, makes you an overcomer in life. Whatever the forces of decay, the forces of destruction, the forces of fall, they will never be able to work in your life because you have built upon the rock and the rock is the totality of God's word.
So, I congratulate you who have made up your mind that you will obey the word of God wholeheartedly. Although some people count you a fool, you are not one. Rather, you are a wise person. That is what Jesus calls you: “I liken him to a wise man.”
He that does his restitution, I liken him to a wise man. She that cleanses herself from all these polluted dressings, I liken her to a wise woman because she will stand the test of time, she will stand the challenges of the devil; your life will be blessed if you practice this truth.
James 1:22-25 “But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.”
This man shall be blessed in his deed, this woman shall be blessed in her deed. You that is keeping His word is already blessed. You are blessed that are holy; that are righteous. When Bible talks about blessings many think about money, but it is actually something greater than money and Satan cannot disagree because you are keeping God's word.
Thought for the day:
Live the word. It is your life. It is your wealth.
Song for the day:
I will never never go back to the world, never go back, I will never go back….
Bible reading for the day:
Song of Solomon 1-3; 2 Corinthians 12
