Thoughts to Live By
“..for as he thinketh in his heart, so is he:”
Proverbs 23:7

How Do We Respond to God’s Word?

“But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.”

When we hear the word of God taught or we read it, just how do we respond to every word from the Lord: Do we allow its penetrating power to grip us and cause us to respond in such a way that we make decisions according to His will, or do we just let it go by without responding correctly?

Here is how we respond correctly to God’s Word:

Let us respond openly.

  • Have your heart open to the teaching His every word. Psalm 119:33
  • Be open to the power of the Word and allow it to cleanse you.  Psalm 119:9,11
  • Be open to the work of the Holy Spirit through the Word.  John 16:13-15

Let us respond humbly.

  • We are to humble ourselves.  James 4:10
  • We are to obey and follow His words.  Psalm 119:32,33

Let us respond positively

  • Have a steady diet of God’s Word in you.  Joshua 1:8
  • Apply its principles to everyday living Psalm 114:112
  • Share it with others and never be ashamed.  Psalm 119:46
