Are you tired of living in defeat?

“Now you are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.” John 15:3

God’s Word is like a prescription from your doctor. You don’t have to understand how the medication works – you just have to faithfully keep taking it. Something amazing happens when you feed regularly on God’s Word. Temptation begins to lose power, and overcoming strength begins to replace it. Each time a scripture opens up and becomes real to you, your desire for God’s Word increases. But that means reading your Bible even when you don’t feel like it or think you don’t have time to do it or don’t seem to be getting much out of it. The Bible says, “As the rain and snow come down from heaven and stay upon the ground to water the earth, and cause the grain to grow and to produce seed for the farmer and bread for the hungry, so also is my Word…it always produces fruit. It shall accomplish all I want it to” (Isaiah 55:10-11 TLB). You don’t have to have certain sensations to know that God’s Word is working in you. Indeed, Bible reading will keep you from sin, and sin will keep you from Bible reading. After his affair with Bathsheba, David wrote, “I have thought much about your words and stored them in my heart so that they would hold me back from sin” (Psalm 119:11 TLB). Jesus said, “Now you are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.” Are you tired of living in defeat? Then bathe your mind each day in God’s Word. Let it flow over you until every vestige of sin and carnality is washed away.
