The Integrity of the Word

So shall My word be
that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall
accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it
(Isaiah 55:11).
 
The Word is God speaking to us. Spending time in the Word is
spending time with the Father. In his book, New Creation Realities E.W. Kenyon
writes: Our attitude towards the Word
determines the place that God holds in our daily life.
Treating the Word as
though it were a common book is the reason for much spiritual failure.
 
Many people have more confidence in the word of man than
they do in the Word of God! But God’s Word is more sure and steadfast than the
rising of the sun tomorrow morning!
  
Our world is constantly changing day after day. Cultural
standards change like the wind. The latest trends change from season to season.
But the Word is fixed, established and stable! Forever, O Lord, Your word is settled in heaven (Psalm 119:89).The grass withers, the flower fades, but the
word of our God stands forever
(Isaiah 40:8).
  
Obedience to the Word is obedience to the Father.
Disobedience to the Word is disobedience to the Father. Ignoring the Word and refusing
to make daily decisions that are in line with it is pride. And pride goes before
destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall!
 
God’s Word will be fulfilled in your life today, either in
obedience, or in disobedience. A life built on sand (a person who hears the
word and refuses to live by it) will be destroyed by the difficulties life
brings (See Matthew 7). But for a person who puts the flesh under and obeys the
Word when it not convenient, the blessings of God will sooner or later
manifest:
  
My son, do not forget
my law, But let your heart keep my commands; for length of days and long life
and peace they will add to you. Let not mercy and truth forsake you; bind them
around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart, and so find favor and
high esteem in the sight of God and man. Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and
He shall direct your paths. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and
depart from evil. It will be health to your flesh, and strength to your bones

(Proverbs 3:1-8)
