Devotional: Being In God’s Word
To align ourselves with God’s call we first need to get aligned with His word. On this journey of faith we’re called to take there’s going to be times of darkness, uncertainty and doubt that only God’s word will light a pathway through.
“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” (Psalm 119:105)
Only the God’s word can cut through humanity’s deceptive emotions and Satan’s destructive strategies and get to the heart of the matter.
“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.” (Hebrews 4:12)
The reason is because God inspired everything contained within it. That’s why it’s called ‘God’s word.’ It is profitable for everything we need to live an effective life.
“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
The Apostle Paul tells us that God’s word was literally breathed out and into the men who wrote down these words.
As we’re in God’s word, the Holy Spirit reveals God’s purpose and direction. It’s like the seeing guide to a blind snow skier. A sighted skier will ski either behind or next to the blind skier shouting instructions.
By following these commands, the blind skier successfully navigates the hill. But if they don’t trust their guide or refuse to listen, thinking they know what’s best, they are in for a disastrous outcome.
God’s word is our guide, and through the Holy Spirit guidance we’ll successfully navigate this journey of spiritual transformation.
To get ourselves aligned with God’s word we need to fill our hearts and minds with it, and then we’ll know a little more of God’s calling.
