SCRIPTURE: In the beginning was the Word,”and the Word was with God, and the Word was God…All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made. John 1″:1-4
Sometime ago,”I heard a story about a wealthy Christian man and his wayward son. His son was living an ungodly lifestyle, not willing to serve God. One day, the young man saw a beautiful car at a car shop and asked his father to buy the car for him and his father agreed. The young man was expecting the car within a short time, but instead of the car, his father gave him a Bible that was sealed. When he opened it, he got angry and threw the Bible away since it was not his expectation. He became bitter and escalated his reckless living.
After a while, his father passed on to eternity. Within the season of his bereavement, the young man became sober and was in a mood of deep reflection. He became remorseful of his wayward lifestyle and wished he had pleased his father. He had a second thought and decided to read the Bible that his father gave him. When he opened the Bible, he was surprised to see that inside it was the particulars of the car he requested for. His father had bought the car, put the car key with the particulars inside the Bible and sealed it before giving him as a gift. His father expected him to go through the Bible and discover the car key and particulars in it. When he saw the car key and particulars, he wept uncontrollably with regrets as if he was going to die.
Beloved, this story shows us that whatever we want from our Heavenly Father is located in His Word. The Scripture says, if ye shall hearken diligently to the Voice of the Lord thy God, all these blessings will come on thee and overtake you (Deuteronomy 28″:1-2). So,”if you will open the Bible, read it and do what it says, you will find all the Blessing of God that you desire in your life.
Remember this”: whatever we want from our Heavenly father is located in His Word
1. Be committed to the reading and study of the Word on a daily basis.
2. Expect the release of God’s blessing whenever you study the Scripture.
PRAYER: Lord,”I refuse to be too busy for Your Word. Lead me to the light that will handle the challenges of my heart as I study Your Word, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
