How to Benefit from the WORD of God (1)

Week of August 03, 2015

Heaven on Earth Greetings and welcome to the month of August.
It is the 8th month of the year and it’s my prayer that it shall be to you, a month of new beginnings.
The series this month is centered on learning how to benefit from the WORD of God and in Part 1, this week, the focus is “Doing the WORD.”

The Word of God is Powerful, it upholds all things but the Power in the WORD cannot be tapped into until the WORD is put into practice.

In Luke 5, Peter struggled to catch fish in the lake of Gennesaaret. In fact, he gave up after a while, having toiled all night in vain but Jesus Christ intervened by giving an instruction to him:

vs 4  “Launch into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught” 

That was an encounter with the WORD of God! When that Word was spoken, the Power in that WORD was released for Peter’s benefit but the profit did not come until He practiced what he heard.

vs 5  “…nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net.”

He did not just acknowledge receiving the Word; he practiced it by casting his net into the sea in obedience to the WORD of Christ. As a result, in the same lake where they had caught nothing earlier, they saw great results beyond their expectations.

vs 6 “…they inclosed a great multitude of fishes…”

It is not enough to receive the WORD of God, you must do the WORD in order to enjoy the benefits in it. Therefore, commit yourself to WORD practice and watch how things will begin to take a new turn for you.

Remember, it’s our month of new beginnings but you have to DO THE WORD
Again, welcome to the month of August 2015.

God BLESS you
Wonders Without End!
