Spirit & Life Devotional

“And I gave them My statutes and showed them My judgments, ‘which, if a man does, he shall live by them.’” Ezekiel 20:11 NKJV
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. Jesus came that we might have life, and have it more abundantly! In Him is life!
Brothers and sisters, the life everyone is looking for; the good things, the enjoyment, the prosperity, the blessings; they are not difficult to achieve, it’s something we can get easily by the word of God! Proverbs 4:20-22 says, “My son, give attention to my words; incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; keep them in the midst of your heart; for they are life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh.”
Life was not meant to be difficult and stressful! The difficulty and stress of life is a result of the curse! But in Christ, as we do the word, the blessing of God is released upon us and all that concerns us, and we begin to flourish like trees planted by the rivers of water! All we have to do, brothers and sisters, is to become doers of the word.
I am a doer of the word of God; my life, my thoughts, words and actions are regulated by the word. From today, life is mine; abundant life is mine in the name of Jesus!
