Life’s Instruction Manual: Attending To God’s Word

My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Proverbs‬ ‭4‬:‭20‬ (KJV)

Attend: Hebrew – to prick up the ears, that is, hearken: – attend, (cause to) hear (-ken), give heed, incline, mark (well), regard.
As we attend to God’s Word, we give attention to it, we read it, speak it, and hear it. As we speak His Word, not only are we speaking it, but also we are hearing it and by this we know we are increasing our faith. Romans 10‬:‭17‬ (KJV), So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. 

Proverbs‬ ‭4‬:‭22‬ (KJV)

For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh. 

When we read and study the Word of God we find that according to verse 22 that God’s Word is life unto those that find them. 
Unto those that find them in the Hebrew is properly to come forth to, to attain, that is, find or acquire, take hold on.

Health to all their flesh, we know that some scripture as examples we can stand on are 1 Peter 2:24, Matthew 8:17, Isaiah 53:5 and Psalm 107:20. With these reference verses we can go by, our confession should be no different than what the Word of God says. 

It is a good and important focus that when we read and study the Word of God to purpose to take a hold of what we read and allow the Holy Spirit to guide and direct us on how to apply the Word we receive. The Holy Spirit is our helper and our comforter. As the body of Christ, it is important that we allow the Holy Spirit to do His part in our life. 

A True Relationship Of Love Part 2: The Starting Point.

Some may ask, How can I have a true relationship of Love? 

It is by first receiving Jesus into your heart. 
Romans 10:9 says, That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 

If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus by asking Him to come into your heart and be Lord of your life and ask Him to forgive you for all your sins and believe in your heart that God raised Him (Jesus) from the the dead, you shall be saved. 

As we read on down to Romans‬ ‭10‬:‭10‬, For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 

You see you make a choice to believe with your heart and when you do, with your heart you believe unto righteousness, which is right standing with God and with your mouth confession is made unto salvation. Asking Jesus to come into your heart and be Lord of your life. 

It’s not hard as you may think or as the devil tries to get you to think. It’s making a life changing commitment to God through Jesus. 

It doesn’t matter who you are or where you been, the bible says on down in Romans‬ ‭10‬:‭11-13‬, For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

You see for whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved. So be encouraged, if you haven’t received Jesus yet, today is a great day to receive Him as your Lord and Savior and you will know you have and are in a true relationship of Love!

Be Blessed and Be Encouraged!
