The Entrance Of
The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple (Psalm 119:130).
The verse above doesn’t say that the Word gives light, but that ‘the entrance of the Word gives light.’ It’s your responsibility to allow God’s Word entrance into your heart—your spirit. The Word of God has the ability to nourish and build you up spiritually, physically and mentally: “And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified” (Acts 20:32).
In addition, when the Word gains the mastery over your life, it washes, purifies, and cleanses your spirit, ridding it of fear, doubt, and guilt. The Word in you will give you the right mind-set—the mind-set of the righteous. Romans 12:2 tells us how to experience supernatural transformation by the Word: “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
As you assimilate God’s Word into you, the Word mingles with your Spirit, making you what it talks about. Some Christians tend to appraise their spiritual growth in terms of how long they’ve been born again. Well, you may have been a Christian for twenty years, that’s not what transforms your life! The Word of God in your spirit is what transforms your life and takes you from one level of glory to a higher level. Settle your heart on the Word today, and watch yourself transformed from glory to glory.
Dear Father, I thank you today for the blessing of your Word; with joy, faith and meekness I receive into my spirit today, your engrafted Word that’s able to transform me from glory to glory, and the power of your Spirit to keep me in the centre of your perfect will, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
