In the beginning, was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was at the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him, nothing was made that was made. John 1:1-3
Hearing the Word of God should be the source of joy for every believer. We read in the opening verse that all things were made through the Word, and without Him, nothing was made that was made. That is an important point to note down.
In other words, the conduit or vehicle that brought about the manifestation of God’s glory on the earth was the Word. So the question is, why won’t anyone be full of joy knowing that, by hearing the Word of God, you have what God used to make all things?
It is proven that God will not do anything without first saying it. His Word is the only medium through which His glory is revealed. His Word must first go in advance. An encounter with the Word is an encounter with God. Your source of joy as a believer should be the fact that God’s Word to you carries the power to make you what He says.
From the moment one gets born again, the Word should be all that he needs. There is no fruit of the Spirit without first having the seed of the Word. When God says it, know that it is settled – it is done! I have come across some believers who think that they need something more than just hearing the word of God. They want a prophetic direction, or a mantle to carry along.
The truth is that the heart that believes the Word of God is more potent than anything you think carries power.
The Word Is The Only Way To Have A Lasting Source Of Joy
3 By faith we understand that the [c]worlds were framed by the word of God so that the things which are seen were not made of things that are visible. Hebrews 11:3
The things that are visible (natural world) were made from the word of God. Now pause for a moment and think about it. If the word of God can make things that were not visible visible, then it means that anyone who has the Word can also make things happen in their walk in this world.
You should be full of joy knowing that as a believer, when the Word is preached, you have received what God used to create the World, and it’s what He will also use to do anything for you. There is no secret – that if you want to have a meaningful life on earth, your best friend should be the word of God.
So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it. Isaiah 55:11
The reason the Word of God is sure, active, and powerful is that it proceeds from the Father. And since it proceeds from the Father, it is written, that where the words of the king is there is power. God doesn’t speak in vain! His words have no choice but to manifest His glory.
Entertainment is fleeting, but those who hold onto the word of God have lasting joy that cannot be taken from them. Bring yourself under the ambiance of the Word, and see your life move in the right direction.
“Is not My word like a fire?” says the Lord, “And like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces? Jeremiah 23:29
The Word can break any rock-like situation in your life. The Word is more than enough! Don’t harbor the thought that it is not. The heart that believes in the Word can get things done quickly. So prioritize hearing the Word. Go to church with the sole aim to hear and hear the Word. For whatever you need from God will come to you through the medium of His Word. Stay blessed
