Getting The WORD Into People
April 2, 2024

DAILY PROVERB:

Proverbs 8:11-14
For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it. I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions. The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate. Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength.

 

OUTLOOK ON THE IN BOOK:

        I hope that by now you have read the vision of Living In His Word Ministries. If not, here it is: “Getting people into the Word of God…and the Word of God into people.” This is not just a catchy phrase. We believe this is the foundation on which people must live their lives in order to enjoy God’s blessings in every area of life. Our verses today point to this understanding.

      First, God’s wisdom is more valuable than anything you could possibly obtain. No club or other social group can provide you or your family with the benefits of a clear understanding of God’s Word. You might join every well-meaning club out there, and they may bring you momentary enjoyment. However, what eternal value do they offer that was not first outlined by God in His Word? The answer is none.

       Second, Wisdom, when mixed with prudence, leads to the correct outcomes in life. Prudence involves subtleties. Many people treat God’s Word like a repair manual, using it only when something is broken. They look up a solution, apply it, and then continue living as they did before. This approach rarely works. What truly works is the consistent and repetitive study of God’s Word. Through this, it becomes deeply rooted in your heart and subtly influences your life, preventing worldly problems from causing damage in the first place.

      Next, even if your life is already broken, you can find guidance in God’s Word to fix it. However, it requires a commitment to the prescribed actions to effect meaningful change. Arrogant, prideful, and selfish individuals often fail to enjoy the full benefits of God’s wisdom because they are unwilling to make the necessary changes.

         Finally, God’s Word offers dependable counsel. In it, you discover understanding and strength for every area of life.     

 

THE WORD WALKING IN ME:

     So, perhaps now you have a better understanding of our slogan: “Getting people into the Word of God…and the Word of God into people.” In fact, try reading our vision slogan again, but this time with your name replacing the word “people.”

Is the wisdom for your life coming from the New Media, Social Internet groups,
or the time honored and trusted Word Of God?
