VALUE THE WORD

Amos 8:11-12 NKJV “Behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord God , “That I will send a famine on the land, Not a famine of bread, Nor a thirst for water, But of hearing the words of the Lord. They shall wander from sea to sea, And from north to east; They shall run to and fro, seeking the word of the Lord , But shall not find it."

You know, the word of God is coming to us more than ever before. God is using a lot of people to send across His word daily through different mediums. As exciting as it sounds, our attitude to the words we receive is what really matters. We must never take the word of God for granted. It can actually become very scarce.

David said, "I rejoice at Your word As one who finds great treasure." Psalm 119:162. But what do we do? We rejoice more when we receive every other thing than when we receive the word of God!

The word of God must never become 'common'. Love it, cherish it, rejoice at it! The words that God speaks, they are spirit and life! It is the solution to every need of man! The word of God can transform a nation, and change a life! If only you can receive it with faith and with the right attitude, it would produce astounding and breathtaking results! O yes, just a word from God can change your life forever!

To do: Be grateful to God for every word you receive; recognise it's potential to create and bring to pass your heart's desires; meditate on it frequently; and prize it more than any other thing.
