On last week’s post, It was in my heart to share on how to handle scripture, which I began by sharing a word from the Lord concerning the way in which scripture does get handled. It is important for us to learn this as a man will only live by every word that comes out of the mouth of God, and not by any stone which we can try turn to bread. It is for this and many reasons still why we all need to hear from the Lord. This message is what my book VICTORY IN PRAYER is all about. To explore this amazing gift that is present to furnish every soul who embraces Christ.
This week, it will be substantial for us to note that scripture is for all those who are of faith. It is for anyone who believes in the God who creating the heavens and earth as being the one speaking through every page of His Word; then you do need scripture. No matter how you fell about yourself or life, then this is for you. You will then discover many things about who God is and how He does operate.
A minister did whisper to his congregants, “Knowledge of the Bible can help you win an argument, but a relationship with the word of God will let you know the Person.”
Then another minister also said, as he was teaching his congregants on how to be effective when handling scripture. “When you begin reading your Bible,” He said, ” do read it slowly and be gentle. Take your time as you go through every text bit by bit; do not be in a rush.” He then emphasized the importance of learning to quite one’s spirit and being still as you read your Bible. He encouraged his congregation always to find a place that is quiet and relaxing; this can be near a waterfall, garden or a forest somewhere as you try to avoid every form of distraction during the times of their reading. He also encouraged his congregation to switch off their phones whenever they set themselves apart to read.
This approach I have done myself. I started this five years ago, and I did it all by myself, with God of course. I share a lot concerning this journey in my books.
The most amazing thing about this is that it not only helped change my mind, but this led to an amazing transformation of my spirit. The Holy Spirit together with His fruits and giftings soon began to have ground in my life. Daddy’s salvation also began having its practical effect from within me. This transformation was also something important and worth taking account. He slowly started helping me out in everything which I felt were disqualifying me from Him; He had now qualified me.
It was now time to learn this new nature that He gave to us, now that I have believed in His Son and turned my whole back on the world.
I do have lots to share, but I’ll keep it on the low for now. Rather, may the Lord begin opening your heart, soul, and spirit to Him please be open unto Him, HE LOVES YOU.
