Accessing And Profiting From The Word Of God.

So now, brethren, I commend you to God and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.” – Acts 20:32

The word of God contains our inheritance. The Bible is calculated for the evidential profit of God’s people. Encounter with the word of God ought to add value to your life. It ought to enhance your life.

The word of God ought to make a difference in your life. You should come to a level in your life where what you are seeing from the word your generation is seeing it in your life.
Why then aren’t we profiting from the Word?

Psalm 119:130 gives us the answer,
The entrance of Your words gives light;
It gives understanding to the simple.
It is not the word you read that changes you, but the one that enters. The very same way you don’t get drunk by smelling alcohol; the alcohol must enter you to get you drunk.

How then do we access profit from the word of God?
Interest brings insight. Be interested in God’s word; ask Him to give you fresh insight from His word (Eccl. 7:25). Spiritual fervency brings insight from the word. Spiritual intensity and vibrancy brings insight. God reveals His word to us via His Spirit (1 Cor. 2:9-10).

1. Apply yourself diligently to secure insight from the word consistently.
2. Apply your life to the things you see out of scriptures until progress is noticed. Look for actions in what God is saying and begin to walk in it until you see evidential progress.

Pray: Father, help me to diligently search the Scriptures. I receive a new level of spiritual intensity in Jesus name.
