This is one of the things that have been a burden to most Christians; we will be touching some crucial points today concerning accessing the word of God. There was an article published on this blog about what the word of God can do for every Christian and we noticed that the issue is not about the word of God or what the word can do but how to access the word. So many Christian are really missing it in the place of accessing the word, many Christian access the bible as a normal book, they approach it just as there school book, or their normal novel, no this is not just a book. It is a bank of light and wisdom trust me, even many Christian even makes it there pillow and still don’t have the power there of, the devil is not moved by you having a bible, he cares less with your bible am not saying having a bible is bad, as a matter of fact having a bible for every Christian is very important, but knowing how to access the word for and effective use is very much important.
It is only through the word of God, that we can stop the molestation of devil. If you’re a Christian and the devil still molest you it is because you have not gotten the right words to tackle him, the holy spirit is to teach us and empower us, so if there’s no place for teaching don’t call him to empower, he only empowers what you know so if you don’t know there’s no way he can come in.
I will like us to understand that the bible is the written word of God while Jesus Christ is the living word of God, and the essence of having the writing word of God as a Christian is to become just like the living word of God, the firstborn among the brethren. We will be looking into some few points on how to access the word of God, that will make the word of God for us as a Christian to leave the realm of information to the realm of revelation and power as God will be helping us to see through. Firstly will like to introduce to us that there’s only one link by which the writing word of God, can make us become like the living word of God, which is the spirit of God[HOLY GHOST] John14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. The epistle of one the great apostle, our apostle John, makes us to understand that the HOLY GHOST will be the one to teach us all things and even be the one to bring to our remembrance all things. Wow is that beautiful enough? Yes it is. Then why should we study or access the word of God without the teacher of all thing, why do we just read letters 2Co 3:6 ¶ Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life. The letter kills but the spirit gives life, we need the spirit of God to access the life behind the writing word of God, as a Christian once we confess the lordship of Jesus over our life, we have the spirit of God. So desire that he may study with you, acknowledge him, and pray that you may study together. He is there, he is closer that you can ever imagine, call him and let him spring up the life behind the word and see the word of God making you a champion you’re created to be.
Beautiful, we now know the spirit of God is giver of life when it comes to accessing the word of God. Nice, we will quickly be looking through how we can actually study with the HOLY GHOST so as to encounter life from the word of God
- Plan your study, you don’t just access the writing word of God just anyhow, if you really mean business, you need to set aside where and when to study, and it should be a place that’s void of distraction where you can give your full attention.
- Study with the attitude of pray and meditation, when you study you prayerfully mediate on the word. Yes!, there’s a place of meditation Joshua 1:8 “This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. It is very important to meditate on the word prayerfully and meditation does not just stop in the place of studying you meditate always, day and night. Don’t be carried away or get arrogant in the course of studying and searching through the word of God, because it so easy to start boasting of your findings instead to prayerfully mediating on the word. We are not running the race of how many chapters you know or how may verses you can quote; it is to the end that we all become lighted by the word, even as Christ our lord is full of light.
- Pray for interpretation, don’t try to interpret the bible yourself rather pray that the spirit may interpret to you, he is the teacher of all teachers, he knows all things.2peter1:20-21-knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation -for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.
- Highlight some important stuffs for easy access later, this will help you a lot.
ACCESS THE WORD OF GOD THROUGH THE SPIRIT OF GOD and your life will never remain the same.
