11 Let us therefore be diligent to enter that rest, lest anyone fall according to the same example of disobedience. 12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. 13 And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account. Hebrews 4:11-13
The word of God is far more powerful than we even realize or understand. Many who follow Christ in America and throughout the world fail to spend the time need in diligent study and meditation upon God’s word. We allow the empty pursuits of this world to take the time that we should be spending in God’s word.
It is very easy to allow the busyness of life to take hold and become disconnected from God’s word. But growth in Christ only happens when we spend time in God’s word. When we spend time in God’s word and we truly take time to meditate upon God’s word the Holy Spirit will bring revelation to our hearts. We will come to know and understand the leading and guidance of the Holy Spirit.
The reason so many struggle today is that the only time they partake of God’s word is when they attend church or maybe when they attend a corporate bible study. But we must have intimate times with the Lord when we get alone with Him in prayer and spend time in His word. He is diligently preparing those He will use in this hour. He is going to use the very ordinary to display His glory. He is going to use those who have been faithful in the very little and trust them with the authority of His kingdom. There are great days ahead for the body of Christ but it all begins with being disciplined in the study of God’s word.
