FGod’s Word is vital to living the abundant life Jesus promised those who believe. His Word is a “lamp unto our feet” (Psalm 119:105), showing us the next steps to take. It is also a “light unto our path” (Psalm 119:105), showing us the way forward.

God Is Bound To His Word
In this episode of Grace Grace Nina and Michelle discuss the promises we’ve been given in God’s Word and His faithfulness to them.
For example, when the Lord told Abraham to leave his country he believed God and obeyed.
Michelle highlighted this saying, “I think about Abraham. You know the Bible says that Abraham believed God’s Word and it was credited to him as righteousness. He amened God. We need to do the same knowing what God said and that He is bound to His Word. He made an oath and because there was no one greater to swear by He swore by Himself.”

As Michelle shared the importance of know what God has said because it is a reflection of who we are in Christ. It is not just enough to know what He haas said, but we must believe Him too!
Additionally, Ephesians 6:17 reminds us that the Scriptures are the “sword of the Spirit” which is the only offensive weapon listed in the armor of God. We see Jesus use the Word as a weapon when He was tempted by the devil in Matthew 4. It truly is a weapon that we can use to defeat the attacks of the enemy in our lives!
Read Psalm 119. Before you start grab something to take notes with. As you read through the Psalm write down any blessings or benefits that you are promised in the Word of God. Once you read through and made your list, reflect on the questions below.
- Are there any blessing or benefits of the Word of God you were previously unaware of possessing as a believer?
- Which blessing or benefit impacted you the most? Why?
- Which blessing or benefit of the Word of God was hardest for you to receive. Why?
- How can you incorporate these promises into your prayer life?
- What is one thing that you can take away and apply to your life from this encounter with God’s Word?
Pray this prayer over yourself, believing that the One who calls you is faithful (1 Thessalonians 5:24). Finally, be encouraged to pray it out loud because faith comes by hearing in Romans 10:17!
Father, thank You for Your Word. Thank You that it is living and activate and sharper than a two edge sword (Hebrews 4:12). Lord, I ask that You would give me an increased hunger for Your Word and Your voice in my life. I long to know Your thoughts and ways that are higher than mine (Isaiah 55:8-9). I pray that through Your Word You would give me wisdom and revelation to know You more (Ephesians 1:17). Teach me Your ways (Psalm 25:4) so that my life might bring glory and honor to Your name. Thank You that Your truth is what sets me free (John 8:32). Amen.
