RHAPSODY OF REALITIES DAILY DEVOTIONAL ;
PROSPERING THROUGH THE WORD.
Wednesday, July 15th,2020;
Pastor Chris Oyakhilome;
And the elders of the Jews builded, and they prospered through the prophesying of Haggai the prophet and Zechariah the son of Iddo. And they builded, and finished it, according to the commandment of the God of Israel, and according to the commandment of Cyrus, and Darius, and Artaxerxes king of Persia (Ezra 6:14).
The New International Version renders the verse above thus, “So the elders of the Jews continued to build and prosper UNDER THE PREACHING of Haggai the prophet and Zechariah, a descendant of Iddo….” Notice the underlined words in the verse. Those two prophets—Haggai and Zechariah—brought them the Word of God. And the result was the encouragement of the people, and they grew and multiplied.
That’s amazing. It tells us the place of the Word—the importance and transforming power of God’s Word. It makes no difference if you’re into business or you’re a student; irrespective of your vocation, you need the Word for your life. There’s no substitute for that. You have to keep learning and meditating on the Word of God for guidance, encouragement and strength. Through the ministry of the Word, the wisdom and skill you require for your next level are imparted to you. The Word helps to build your spirit strong, so you can face anything and win in any situation.
God surely does have a plan for your success; He’s made adequate provision for your prosperity, but He doesn’t do anything outside of His Word. In 3 John 1:2, He said, “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.” Your soul prospers through conscious meditation on the Word.
THAT ONE PLACE!
Sometimes, all we need to hear is that one word that changes everything!
All we need to experience is that one place & atmosphere that somehow calms everything…
