Hear and Do the Word

Sunday March 16, 2014

We are told to be doers of the Word and not hearers only, and if we don’t, we are self-deceived (James 1:22-25). To remember the Word, so write it down. Pastor Sydney asked God for dreams and visions, and He gave him a dream about financial wisdom. He was sure he would remember it in the morning, but he didn’t value it enough to write it down, and in the morning he could not remember it. Joshua 1:8 states how important it is to keep the Word and meditate on it. Knowing the truth does not change anything, unless you act on it. Live in the Word. We can become deceived in our relationship with the Father, if we do not talk to Him. You cannot have a relationship with someone you do not talk to. Be a hearer, doer, and you will be blessed. Ezekiel 33:30-32 relates about people who hear what to do but do not do it. “Doing it” is not talking about it, planning to do it, and wanting to do it. The Word has to be what sustains us. Walk in the light that you have. He will bring to your remembrance what you have put into yourself in the past. We let the Word slip if we are not doing it, and we are deceiving ourselves. God’s Word brings light and understanding. Are you walking in the light that you have? Build your life on the solid rock. How you stand in a storm reveals how established you are in the Word. Use what you have (Luke 19:20-26).
