Psalm 112:1-3 MSG “Hallelujah! Blessed man, blessed woman, who fear GOD, Who cherish and relish his commandments, Their children robust on the earth, And the homes of the upright—how blessed! Their houses brim with wealth And a generosity that never runs dry.”
It isn’t enough to be readers and hearers of the Word. We better let the Word penetrate and transform our hearts so we can be doers of the Word. We know we are truly changed at work when toxic back biting and “under the bus throwing” happens and we’re not a part of it and we’re not afraid of it. We know we are truly changed when we are no longer posting subliminal or blatant statements to hurt someone even if they have done it to us. We know we are truly changed when we hear instructions from the Holy Spirit and we get convicted but ultimately, we obey.
We desire to be more than a “work in progress” and we don’t misuse “God knows my heart” but we really allow God to transform and purify our hearts. Let’s be doers of the Word. If we mess up, whisper “God forgive me. Holy Spirit penetrate and transform my heart. Help me to do the Word not just read it, speak it, hear it, and preach it. I want to just do it!” Dr.J.
James 1:22 NLT But don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves.
