Value God’s Word! IV

Good morning, dear friends!I thank God for you and your hunger for the Word of God. Hopefully, this daily word that I share with you encourages and inspires you and helps you in your daily walk with God. This is my prayer and my desire concerning all those that stop by to read “Daily Word for Spiritual Edification”. Today I would like to continue talking about the importance of God’s Word.We saw what God spoke through Moses that God’s Word is our life. We also talked about the fact that our attitude towards the Word can either prolong our life or shorten it. We have already seen in the parables of Jesus that our attitude towards God’s Word determines the strength of our foundation, our life and all the things we are building. Yesterday we also talked about the fact that God’s Word is able to change our disappointments into joy, bankruptcy – into abundance.  We saw all of it in the life of Peter. I would like for us to look at the verses that talk about Peter when he was utterly failing and ready to give up.
«When He had stopped speaking, He said to Simon, „Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.” But Simon answered and said to Him, „Master, we have toiled all night and caught nothing; nevertheless at Your word I will let down the net.” And when they had done this, they caught a great number of fish, and their net was breaking. So they signalled to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. And they came and filled both the boats, so that they began to sink” (Luke, 5:4-7).
Would you like to receive so many blessings that were not able to deal with it by yourself? How do we come to such a point in our lives? From Peter’s story we see that it was the Word of God that made the difference. Verse 6 says, „And when they had done this…” It tells us that Peter and his partners did everything Jesus told them to do.So despite human logics, despite all professional skills and any feelings, Peter and his friends obeyed and decided to do what Jesus said. The very same thing will happen in our lives when we treat the Word of God right, – the Word will life us up, deliver us, and will give us direction.As I have said before, Jesus comes into our lives through God’s Word. Jesus said that the Word that He speaks is spirit and life. Therefore, when we receive His Word, it brings us life. God’s Word gives us clear and precise direction. Jesus told Peter: «Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch» (verse 4). It was a very definite instruction, firm direction, clear order about the things they needed to do.Besides, God’s Word fills us with inner strength. A person that has experienced a disappointment, has given up and lost the desire to try again, – that is who we see in this story. They had started to wash their nets, but then everything suddenly changed and this very same person gains strength to do the thing he couldn’t do before. It happened to Peter after he received a word from God.Also the Word of God fills us with boldness. It inspires us and makes us brave, so that we can do what we have started but were not able to complete. God’s Word brings courage into our lives.God not only speaks His Word to us, but also goes before us to fulfil what He has said and promised. When Peter obeyed the words of Jesus, God Himself proved His Word and afterwards Peter caught a great multitude of fish.Today God desires to tell us, dear friends, that we can take God’s Word for granted. Let’s treat the Word of God like jewel, a rare pearl, because God’s Word is our life. And I assure you that God’s Word will enrich your life.May God enrich you today!Peace of God to you!Pastor Rufus Ajiboye
