BEGIN AND PROGRESS WITH THE WORD

Saturday, January 1, 2022

Verse of The Day: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:1

Thought of The Day: There’s no beginning without the Word; and whatever begins with disregard to the Word has no future.

LISTEN: LISTEN: God’s Word is the foundation of everything. By it the heavens and earth were created. By the same Word, the sun, moon, stars, vegetations, sea and the entire universe are made. As a matter of fact, God does things by His Word. His Word goes where He sent it to perform His purpose. And anything with a lasting future must begin with the Word. The Word carries the power of creation. It calls out things that are never in existence to appear. It’s the channel of God’s power and manifestation. The Bible says,

“He sent His word and healed them,
And delivered them from their destructions.”

Psalms 107:20

God’s Word is powerful and alive (Hebrews 4:12). It’s God’s instrument of healing, salvation, miracles, intervention, deliverance, visitation and the like. God never did anything without His Word. He started the universe by His Word. Therefore, it’s unreasonable to begin the year without the Word of God. Beloved, there’s no beginning without the Word; and whatever begins with disregard to the Word has no lasting future. Jesus Christ is the Word of God. He is in the beginning with God and everything was made  through Him. He is the channel through which God manifested Himself to humanity. Our verse of the day says,

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”

John 1:1

Jesus Christ is the Word of God and came to us with God’s spoken Words. You should believe the Word of God and declare what the Word says. Speak faith and never believe Satan’s lies. You may have failed last year in some respect. But there’s a word for you today. It’s a new dawn for you. God will turn your life around for good in Jesus’ name. Henceforth, make God’s word the standard of your life and your life will surely be fixed. Be wise!

What Should We Do With This Message?   

1. Make God the center of your life in 2022 and beyond.                                                           2. Reflect on past years and determine to do better this year.                                               3. Grow your relationship with God and determine to be dedicated to Him henceforth.                                                            4. Constantly use the word of God in any given situations and act on it.

Prayer: Dear LORD, this is a new year. I just realized that I can’t do anything without You. Therefore, help me to walk with You and to act by your word. In Jesus’ name, amen!

A Word of Blessing: Today, I speak on your life. It’s well with you. By the power of God’s word, I declare that you’re lifted above reproach and sorrow. In Jesus’ name, amen!

Reflection: He who believes and act in faith and rejects Satan’s lies would soar even in storms.

Quote: The Word of God carries the power of creation. It calls out things that are never in existence to appear.
