Peace be with you
Hebrews 4 12 For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
Generally, we depend on many things in order to survive. For example, electricity will help us to do lots of things, but load shedding happens. For important presentations, we depend on laptops but they crash. Anything we depend on can fail us. When we depend on our ability, we still fail but God will never fail us.
The Bible is the living Word of God, it reveals God in a special way and we get to understand Him better when we regularly read our Bible. It enriches our limited minds and enables us to answer questions and defend what we believe in when necessary.
When we read the Bible we develop confidence in preaching. It has got the power to break and crush a hard heart, it burns like fire and destroys evil, even that which crops from within us.
Waking up every day depends on God’s grace, and therefore it is important that we must
1) pray and commit our daily living to Him. We need to be
2) obedient to His Word and allow it divides souls and spirit, joints and marrow. When we depend on the Word of God
3) Christ will reign in us, we will practice self-control. The last thing to promote dependence on God’s Word is
4) fasting – it trains our mind and body to truly depend on God for anything and everything. Depend on God’s Word.
God bless you
