The word of God is not seasonal: It is near you in your mouth – Part 6a

270px-Four_seasonsWe should not be treating the word of God as a past time reading book. The scripture is clear when it says, “And don’t for a minute let this Book of The Revelation be out of mind. Ponder and meditate on it day and night, making sure you practice everything written in it. Then you’ll get where you’re going; then you’ll succeed. Haven’t I commanded you? Strength! Courage! Don’t be timid; don’t get discouraged. God, your God, is with you every step you take.” Read Joshua 1:8-9 (MSG). Listen to this popular Bible verse, “Do not let this book of the law depart from your lips. Recite it by day and by night, that you may carefully observe all that is written in it; then you will attain your goal; then you will succeed.” Read Joshua 1:8-9 (NABRE). I looked up the opposite meaning or adjectives for the word seasonal, and this is what I found (frequent, continual and perpetual). Watch this, God’s Word is perpetual, and in the word study dictionary, the term connotes – eternal and ceaseless.

God’s Word is ceaseless; the question then arises, what must we do since we know the Word of God is ceaseless? The scripture helps us to answer this question, 1 Thessalonians 2:13 (ASV), “And for this cause we also thank God without ceasing, that, when ye received from us the word of the message, even the word of God, ye accepted it not as the word of men, but, as it is in truth, the word of God, which also worketh in you that believe.” Father, thank You for giving us Your Word which is ceaseless and never-ending. Glory, Hallelujah.

Watch this, gratitude in the midst of your season is very important. Worship is a sacrifice and should not be conditioned by our environment or the things we experience, hence the Bible says, “Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.” Read 1 Thessalonians 5:18 (NLT).

This is such a beautiful verse, Enter with the password: “Thank you!” Make yourselves at home, talking praiseThank Him. Worship Him.” Read Psalm 100:4 (MSG). Beloved, we were created for worship, Selah. Saying thank you is always appropriate, it has a way of endearing you to people who do, how much more God! 

My Father, thank You.

We write. You read. Be encouraged.
