Open Heaven Devotional 22nd March 2023 MESSAGE:
One of the most beautiful things about the word of God is that it produces faith. Romans 10:17 says, “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” The word helps faith to swell within you, so much so that you begin to do things that were impossible for you before. Daniel 11:32 says, “… but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits”.
The more of God you know, the stronger you become and the more exploits you can do for Him. There is just something powerful that consumes you when you study your Bible; you begin to see through the eyes of God. You would start to see situations as God sees them. You would become bold and fearless. Things that were impossible to you before would become normal; in fact, you would experience some miracles that would be difficult to testify of as people would find it difficult to believe you.
If you can eat the word of God so much that you are filled with it, then Jesus Christ said you can ask Him for anything and He would do it (John 15:7). What a great open secret! If you have been wondering why God answers some people’s prayers speedily, now you know what to do. Hebrews 11:6 says: But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
Since faith comes by hearing the word of God and it is impossible to please God without faith, you need the word of God to please Him. If you are like me, always crying to God, saying, “Lord, I just want to please You”, the solution is simple: soak yourself in the word of God. It is interesting though that fear also comes by hearing so be careful of what you listen to. Choose to listen to the word of God.
Choose to fill your heart with the word of God.
