Forever, O LORD,
Your word is settled in heaven.
The most important thing to seeing God’s Word work in your life is getting it settled in your heart. Too often believers may even know what God’s Word says, but not having it settled in your heart causes people to waiver. God’s Word is already settled in heaven. What He has said is absolute, and therefore should be fully believed. When His Word is settled in your life then you will listen to and go by only what His Word says, no matter what your circumstances say.
So the challenge is how do we get God’s Word settled in our hearts. Let me share with you four things that Smith Wigglesworth, who was a mighty man of God shared that he did in is own personal life. “There are four principles we need to maintain. First, read the Word of God. Second, consume the Word of God until it consumes you. Third, believe the Word of God. Fourth, act on the Word.”
Take note Wigglesworth said you must maintain these in your life. Reading God’s Word should be a daily diet for the believer. To consume the Word means you meditate on key scriptures that tell you who you are, what you have, and what you can do until they consume you. Then you must believe in what it says, which leads to acting upon the Word. I would add you cannot incline your ear to things contrary to God’s Word. You must incline your ear only to what God has said. When His Word is settled in your heart, you will see it work for you.
