RECEIVE THE WORD WITH GLADNESS

RECEIVE THE WORD WITH GLADNESS

📖 And now, brethren, I commend you to
God, and to the word of his grace, which
is able to build you up, and to give you
an inheritance among all them which are
sanctified (Acts 20:32).

          The Word illuminates, informs and builds your spirit, bringing you into the place that the Lord has already given you, helping you understand the life that you’re supposed to live. The Word gives you divine insight into mysteries and secrets. So, when you’re studying the Word on your own, or hearing it being preached or taught, rejoice and receive it with gladness.


          When you receive the Word with gladness, very easily, it imparts faith and courage to your spirit. The Bible lets us know that in Christ, you’ve obtained an inheritance; that’s a legal reality. However, for you to use, enjoy, and walk in the vital reality of your inheritance in Christ, you need the Word. The Word of God—the Bible—is the book of your inheritance. As you study and meditate therein, all that rightly belong to you in Christ aren’t only unveiled to you, but become your vital experience.

          The Bible says through knowledge shall the just be delivered (Proverbs 11:9). The just are those who have the nature and life of Christ in their spirits, those who are born again; through knowledge—the knowledge of God’s Word—they’re delivered, not from trouble, but into their inheritance. The Word of God is what catapults you into that large place which the Psalmist spoke of in Psalm 18:19; a place of wealth, health and prosperity.

          It’s therefore important that you get to know and possess your inheritance through the Word. Read our opening scripture again: it isn’t just talking about the ownership of the inheritance, but the possession of the same through, and by the Word.

PRAYER

🙏 Righteous Father, your Word is life to me, and it puts me over and above circumstances. I’m built, energised, and rightly positioned by your Word, and the Holy Spirit for increased prosperity and supernatural accomplishments. The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places, I have a goodly and awesome heritage, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

1 Thessalonians 2:13;

📖 And we also [especially] thank God continually for this, that when you received the message of God [which you heard] from us, you welcomed it not as the word of [mere] men, but as it truly is, the Word of God, which is effectually at work in you who believe [exercising its superhuman power in those who adhere to and trust in and rely on it].

Luke 8:15;

📖 But as for that [seed] in the good soil, these are [the people] who, hearing the Word, hold it fast in a just (noble, virtuous) and worthy heart, and steadily bring forth fruit with patience.
