Hearing By The Word of God
So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Romans 10:17 New King James Version
THOUGHTS ABOUT TODAY'S VERSE...
Notice God’s Word didn't say by having heard the Word once or even twice or three times, but by hearing, and hearing what is preached about Jesus. What is it we are supposed to hear? The six o'clock news, the New York Times, the Kitsap Sun, the Seattle Times newspaper, Spike TV, M-TV, HBO Cable Network, CNN News, ESPN news, your neighbor next door, the guy down at the gas station, or some other news broadcasting station? No, we are supposed to be hearing and hearing by the WORD of GOD concerning Jesus Christ and Him crucified for us. We should be meditating on His Word day and night. We need to choose very carefully what we listen to, what we watch, and whatever else is feeding our natural senses, because our spirit man, the real us, is fed through the eye gate, the mouth gate, and the ear gate. Whatever we're seeing, speaking, and hearing the most is what is going to get into our hearts (our spirit man). God said out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. In Proverbs it says: Keep (Guard) your heart with all diligence, for out of it [spring] the issues of life. We need to put on a spiritual filter and make sure that what we are hearing and seeing lines up with the Word of God, so that what we are speaking is also from God. Because if it doesn't line up with God's Word it will have the opposite effect of building faith...it will destroy Faith and cause unbelief, doubt, and fear. Remember, whatever is NOT of faith is sin.
Precious and gracious Father, I ask You according to Your Word ((James 1:5 KJV) " If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.") to give unto Your servants and your saints the wisdom and revelation knowledge of Your Word. Father, for everyone who reads this, place an urgency in their hearts, an unquenchable desire to read, study, and meditate on Your Word. That their faith may abound. That they may know the truth set forth in Your Word and that the truth will make them free. Father, I ask that you would reveal unto us the deceitfulness and the ploys that the enemy uses to destroy our faith. Father, reveal unto us how we, Your church, have been polluting our faith and compromising ourselves with the things of this world. Help us Father, to be strong again and to stand firm in our faith in Your Word and it's standards. Father, I ask this in Jesus' name.
