God’s Word is Our Source for Life and Living

God's Word - It will change your life 320 My child, pay attention to what I say. Listen to my words. 21 Never let them get away from you. Remember them and keep them in your heart. 22 They will give life and health to anyone who understands them. 23 Be careful how you think; your life is shaped by your thoughts.Proverbs 4:20-23 (Good News)

My friend, draw near and read my words with a hearing heart. Now as never before, it is time to be determined to live in victory and not defeat. Many of us have taken life as it comes and accepted whatever it dishes out.

This is not the way God intends for us to live. He has given us everything we need to live a victorious life in Him and it is found in His Word (the Bible). However, just having a Bible will not guarantee us victory. He tells us that He has “given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness…” and this is found in His Word.

Whatever we may be facing, or whatever is going on, we must turn to the Word first as our source; rather than looking to people or the world’s system. God spoke to bring everything into existence. Likewise, He has given us His Word to use for the building of our lives.

  • Are you sick? Turn to the Word for healing;
  • Are you struggling in your finances? Turn to the Word for financial restoration;
  • Are you troubled in your mind? Turn to the Word for peace;
  • Are you struggling in your marriage? Turn to the Word and discover God’s Will for marriages;

When we spend time in the Word and take it as life for us, we build a resistance to the things that come to wear us down, discourage us, make us ineffective, and ultimately destroy us. Jesus told us in John 10:10, “The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows)” (Amplified). Do not let the thief be successful in your life, take God at His Word and hold on to it for dear life…because it is life!

“…be it unto me according to thy word.”Luke 1:38

When the angel told Mary she was with child, Mary did not allow the potential for embarrassment or even persecution to stop her from receiving the Blessing of God into her life. Rather, she willingly received it, (the Word). Our lives would be drastically different if we stop looking to the world for answers and look to God and His Word! He should be the source of our lives. The scripture declares: “he gives us the power to live, to move, and to be who we are…”Acts 17:28 (CEB).

So, let’s follow Mary’s example and take God at His Word because He is good for it. He can take care of any problem we may face…now or in the future!

    Amen! There truly is power on the word of God!


  2. So True Sebastian, Jesus is indeed God’s Living Word, our Light in the darkness, our Teacher our guide, who leads us into all understanding confirming His Truth by the inspired written word. How very blessed we are in this generation as we watch for His return, we see the signs, we hear the call, thank you Sebastian for reminding us we can’t go it alone, we do not rely on man, we do not rely on what we think or feel, we Trust and obey for there is no other way to be happy in Jesus but to Trust and obey.

    Matthew 23:8-10 But you, do not be called ‘Rabbi’; for One is your Teacher, the Christ, and you are all brethren. Do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in Heaven. And do not be called teachers; for One is your Teacher, the Christ. ( NKJV )

    John 5: 39 – 40 Search the Scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life and they are they which testify of me. And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.

    1John 2:26-28 These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you. But the anointing which ye have received of Him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is Truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in Him.

    Colossians 2 :2 -3 That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in Love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ; In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

    1John 5:20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know Him that is True, and we are in Him that is True, even in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the True God, and eternal life.

    John 15:14-15 Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.

    Matthew 10:26-28 Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known. What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops … ( perhaps these are our Computers today )

    Psalm 32:8
    I will instruct you and teach you in the way you shall go. I will guide you with Mine eye.

    Christian Love from both of us – Anne.

    Indeed, the Word of God is alive and powerful (Heb. 4:12).


  4. Amen to this! We don’t need to look to God for a ticket to heaven but then turn to the world for every natural problem that ails us. God cares about everything in our life and has provided a solution for our every need. It’s all in His Word. Thank you Jesus!


  5. Thank you! A word in season 🙂


  6. This is truly “Faith1st,” and that is what we need to overcome the challenges we have in life! Thank you, I’m really in agreement with the Word.
