BE A DOER OF THE WORD!
But be doers of the Word and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves (James 1:22).
God’s Word is full of power and ability to produce and perform what it says in your life. The Word of God can never return void without fulfilling its purpose in your life. No wonder Apostle James said that you should be a doer of the Word and not the hearer only, by not deceiving yourself. Anyone who hears God’s Word but fails to obey and do what the Word says is a deceiver. There is no way God can bless a deceiver. Therefore, the hearer of the Word only is hindering his blessings from the Lord. God wants every Christian not only to be hearer but to be doer of His Word as well.
Furthermore, anyone who obeys and does what the Word says is a wise man. A wise man listens to instruction and carries it out; but a fool finds it very difficult to listen to instruction let alone carrying it out. That is why Jesus Christ said in Matthew 7:24, “Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock.” Also, Jesus Christ likens anyone who hears His Word but fails to do and obey it to a fool (Matthew 7:26). A fool will always hear God’s Word but fail to obey it in his life.
Our father, Abraham was a case study of someone who obeys God by becoming wise and a father of many nations. Obedience to the Word of God causes you to tread the path of greatness to your destiny in life. No one will ever obey God and be forsaken and defeated in life no matter the situation. That is the reason why the Bible tells us about Abraham in Romans 4:18, “Who, contrary to hope, in hoped believed, so that he became the father of many nations, according to what was spoken, ‘So shall your descendants be.” Of course, Abraham through obedience to God’s Word became the father of many nations. Even today, all the major religions in the world claim Abraham as their ancestor. Absolute obedience to God’s Word will always provoke His blessings in our lives.
Daily Tip: It is your choice to make, either to be the doer of God’s Word and be wise or hearer only and become a fool. Shalom!
Golden Text: Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not has in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling (Philippians 2:12).
