DATE: JANUARY 16TH. 2014
SCRIPTURE: 1 Peter 1:23, Psalms 113:105
The believer most potent weapon is the word of God. The word of God as a tool has many shapes and forms. The first for our study is the word of God as a SEED and as a LIGHT and LAMP. As a SEED, the word of God is not just any common seed but rather an imperishable seed.
This means this seed can never be destroyed no matter what. This seed is supposed to be planted in the heart of the believer. It is not a fruit but rather a seed which has to be planted and the ground for the plantation of this imperishable seed is the heart of the believer. Every seed when planted in a good soil has the potency of growing up into a tree with more fruits on it; which also has a lot of seed in them. Every seed has life in it, it develops root and start to grow till it bears fruits. When the Word of God takes hold of the heart of a believer, it has to bear fruits as a testimony for the world to know. The word of God as a seed in our heart, should change mould us for those around us to testify of the changes God has made in our lives. The Word of God is also LIGHT/LAMP in the dark world. The fact is that no amount of darkness can overshadow a little ray of the LIGHT. As Christians we are to be guided by thin light which is the word of God. As the light for our path and a lamp unto our feet, we will not stumble in our journey through life. The Word of God as a light exposes every hidden tricks of the devil, also it illuminates our path so that we can spot all the satanic plots and not stumble. So when the Word of God takes hold of your heart, you are embolden to walk through your journey of faith knowing that all the devil’s plans will not exposed to you.
Confession for Today:
I confess that the word of God is a seed in my heart that will bear fruits for the world to see and also a light to guide my path through life’s journey.
