Believers should seek the promise of God’s word with a sense of value and urgency that their lives depend on it. If you are earning ?150,000 monthly in Nigeria and someone told you that you can earn $150,000 at that same job monthly, which one are you going to take? In the same way, most people don’t come to the Word of God as if their lives depend on it. You will take seriously anything you know your life depends on. It is a choice and choices have consequences.
One of the consequences of living by the Word is that the people you love the most are going to be the first beneficiaries. The opposite is also true: the people you love the most will also be the first victims of anything you are careless with especially if it has to do with God. The first beneficiaries of your prayer life are going to be the people that you love the most. If you don’t know how to pray and you don’t bother about it, they are going to be the first victims of that carelessness when there is a need to pray.
Faith is not the only subject in the Bible but it is the most important subject because every other thing that God has for you in the Bible is accessible only by faith. So, if you don’t know how to walk by faith, you will not get many things that God has for you. Today, decide to pursue developing faith in the promises of the Word of God.
PRAYER: Father, I receive grace to approach the promises of Your word seriously because my life depends on it, in Jesus’ name. Amen!
