PRACTISE THE WORD.
“But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.” James 1:22 (KJV)
Another way you can develop your spirit is by practising God’s word. It is not enough to read the word and meditate on it if you do not act on the word. In fact, it is almost impossible for you to meditate on the word without acting on it, because as a man thinks in his heart so he is. If all you do is read the word like a storybook and then choose not to meditate or act on it, you are not doing yourself any good.
The word is supposed to be like a mirror. When you look into the mirror, it is to examine yourself and see what is out of place in your appearance in order to correct it. It is totally useless to go to the mirror, see a white thread in your hair, and walk away without removing it. This is what happens if you read the word and refuse to act on it. Matthew 7:24-27 says it all. If you hear the word and fail to be a doer of it, there is no way your spirit is going to develop. Beloved, it is a crime when you go to church, listen to powerful revelations, and then fail to act on them. Your meat must be the word. It nourishes you and when you take action based on the word, it energises or strengthens you. Don’t expect God to give you any follow-up instructions when you have not obeyed His first instruction. Practise the word the way God has said it.
The mother of Jesus, Mary, told His disciples to do whatever He told them to. That is the way to succeed. However, you won’t become perfect overnight even after you have begun to practise the word. Sometimes the enemy will attempt to trip you up because it is his job to ensure that you do not succeed. But when you fall, get up; as the scriptures say, “When I fall, I shall arise” (Micah 7:8, KJV).
When you begin to act on the word of God it changes your soul. Now is the time for you to start doing the word.
