Here is a short devotional guide on what it looks like to truly treasure God’s Word.
What is the process involved in learning to treasure God’s Word? This is the Word hand from a ministry called the Navigators. Hear it (Romans 10:17), read it (Deuteronomy 17:19), study it (Ezra 7:10), memorize it (Psalm 119:9-11), and meditate upon it (Psalm 1:2-3).
According to Psalm 119:9-16, what difference should treasuring God’s Word make in your life? This second stanza begins with the second letter of the Hebrew alphabet, beth.
The interesting thing about the letter ‘beth’ is that it also is a Hebrew word that means “house.” What one thing are you going to do differently this school year to build a home in your heart and life for God’s Word?
2 Peter 1:4 reminds us that the way to escape the corruption that is in the world through lusts is to believe and rest in the precious promises of God’s Word. What promise of God are you going to believe and rest in today?
Pray for the Word of God to abide deeply in the heart of one young man or woman that you know personally (1 John 2:14-17).
What are some of the types of fruit that the seed of God’s Word brings about in our lives? John 15:16; Galatians 5:22-23; Hebrews 13:15. In which of these areas do you want to see more growth in your personal life this coming year?
Is the Lord pruning you right now so that you might become more fruitful in His kingdom service (John 15:1-16)? What role does the Word have in this process according to the Apostle John?
