Receiving The Word of God With Gladness
The Word of God illuminates, informs and builds your spirit, bringing you into the place that the Lord has already given you, helping you understand the life that you’re supposed to live. The Word of God also gives you divine insight into mysteries and secrets of the Kingdom. So, when you’re studying the Word on your own, or hearing it being preached or taught, rejoice and receive it with gladness.
When you receive the Word with gladness, very easily, it imparts faith and courage to your spirit. The Bible lets us know that in Christ, you’ve obtained an inheritance; that’s a legal reality. However, for you to use, enjoy, and walk in the vital reality of your inheritance in Christ, you need the Word. The Word of God—the Bible—is the book of your inheritance. As you study and meditate therein, all that rightly belong to you in Christ aren’t only unveiled to you, but become your vital experience.
The Bible says through knowledge shall the just be delivered (Proverbs 11:9). The just are those who have the nature and life of Christ in their spirits, those who are born again; through knowledge—the knowledge of God’s Word—they’re delivered, not from trouble, but into their inheritance. The Word of God is what catapults you into that large place which the Psalmist spoke of in Psalm 18:19; a place of wealth, health and prosperity.
It’s therefore important that you get to know and possess your inheritance through the Word. Read our opening scripture again: it isn’t just talking about the ownership of the inheritance, but the possession of the same through, and by the Word.
