Establish His Word in Your Life
Remember the Prophetic Word
God gave to you to change your life.
Rehearse it, pray it back God.

Wage a good warfare with the Word.
Keep saying it and proclaiming it.
As you do, you’ll have the reward.
Relent not, keep standing on it.

Remember, “Joseph dreamed again.”
Remember, “David turned away.”
And as you do, you too will reign.
Yes, as you do, you will not stray.

All principalities will bow
In the matchless name of Jesus
Though the Kingdom may suffer now,
But the violent takes it by force.

Stand your ground like Nehemiah.
I say be daring like Esther
Set your face like flint like Daniel.
Be importunate like David.

Pray like Jacob, “I’ll not leave you…”
Pray fervently till the tide turns.
Fast and pray and God will bless you.
Pray ceaseless, till the table turns.

Memorise Scripture ( by Don & Dawn)

good successA God's guidance6 God's guidance7

Hey it’s Don here again.

I think Sam Storms, in his book on Colossians, describes well what it looks like for the word of Christ to dwell in us.

He talks about the Scriptures calling out to us.

“Don’t just read me,” they seem to say. “Feast on me! Meditate! Ruminate! Saturate your spirit!

Let my words wash over your soul like the refreshing waters of a cool mountain stream.

Hear them again and again. May they be permanently embedded in your brain, shaping how you think and live and relate to one another.

Don t be satisfied with a surface scan. Dig deeply. Explore me, word upon word, line upon line.”

Truth be told, for you to grow in faith, you need to regularly, read, study, memorize, and meditate God’s word.

There’s no other way really.

That’s why my wife Dawn and I are continuously inspiring hundreds of thousand of Christians to memorize Bible verses regularly.

There’s power in memorizing scriptures. Believe me.

If You Know It, Then Do It ( by Rick Warren)

If You Know It, Then Do It by Rick Warren

“Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.”

(James 1:22 NIV)


The Bible says in Mark 12:30, “You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength” (NLT). Another way to say this is, love God with all your talk, all your feelings, all your thinking, and all of your acting. God shaped you to be primarily either a talker, feeler, thinker, or a doer.

Talkers love God with their hearts. Feelers love God with their souls. Thinkers love God with their minds. Did you know that you can also love God with your intellect? Did you know that when you’re doing intellectual activities, it brings glory to God? When you’re developing and strengthening your mind, it is an act of worship.

People who are thinkers fall in love with the Bible when they become believers. They love to study that book. There is no other book in the world like it! It has the answers to life’s questions, like: “Why am I here? Where am I going? What is the purpose of life? Does my life matter? What’s the past? What’s the future? Where did I come from?” Thinkers love Bible study. Psalm 119:97 says, “How I love your law! I think about it all day long” (TEV).

We need thinkers, because the world needs consideration. Somebody has to be thinking through complex issues and the implications of what the rest of us are doing. We need people who think through tough problems and bring solutions to the table. That’s why we need scientists, writers, philosophers, and innovators.

But thinkers have to be careful to practice humility. The Bible says, “Don’t be impressed with your own wisdom” (Proverbs 3:7a NLT). Why? Because God is God, and you’re not.

Humility is a choice. Not once in the Bible are you ever told to pray for God to humble you. It says to “humble yourself before the Lord.” It’s a choice. Humility is something you do to yourself. Nobody else can do it to you. They can humiliate you, but they can’t make you humble. In essence, humility is total dependence on God. It’s not denying your strengths; it’s being honest about your weaknesses.

Thinkers also need to be careful to practice what they know. If you know it, then do it! James 1:22 says, “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says” (NIV).

Do you believe you ought to give to the poor? Do you do it? Do you believe that people need Christ to go to Heaven? Do you tell them about it? Do you believe in tithing? Do you do it? You only believe the parts of the Bible that you do.

Talk It Over
• Is it harder for you to deny your strengths or be honest about your weaknesses? Why do you think this is so?
• Make a list of the things you believe in. Are you doing those things?

Want to Know God’s Promises? Read the Bible! ( By Rick Warren)

“I commit you to God and to the Word of his grace, which can build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.” (Acts 20:32 NIV)

You have an inheritance coming to you. If you read God’s Word, the Bible promises one for you.

The Bible says in Acts 20:32, “I commit you to God and to the Word of his grace, which can build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.”

An inheritance is what you get for being part of a family that’s rightfully yours.

Pretend your father was Warren Buffet, and he dies. If you never took the time to read the will, you’d be foolish. You wouldn’t get what was rightfully due to you. You wouldn’t benefit from what belongs to you as a child of Warren Buffet.

When you become a follower of Jesus, you’re not just a believer — you’re a belonger. You become a part of God’s family. Family privileges come along with that decision. You have a spiritual inheritance.

But if you walked through your entire life and you didn’t know what benefits were available to you as a child of God, that would be sad — and foolish. God wants you to grow and know what’s available to you from him. You need to read the Bible to do that.

The Bible says in 2 Timothy 3:16-17, All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”

The purpose of the Bible is to help you live out the purpose God has for your life; it’s God’s inheritance that’s due to you. God wants you to be thoroughly equipped for what you’ve been made to do. To do that, he does four things through Scripture:

– He teaches you. God shows you the path on which you should walk.

– He rebukes you. God shows you when you’re off the path.

– He corrects you. God shows us how you can get back on the path.

– He trains you. God shows you how you can stay on the path.

That’s how God’s Word helps you grow and get that great inheritance God has prepared for you.

Talk About It

How would your life change if it reflected the truth that you have an inheritance from the King of Kings?

– What benefits from your inheritance have you not yet accepted?

– Is the Bible a useful tool for you each day? Are you taking full advantage of its instruction?

Keep God’s Word Close at Hand (by Rick Warren)


“He should keep it with him all the time and read from it every day of his life.” (Deuteronomy 17:19a NCV)

For most of the 2,000-year history of the Church, only priests got to personally read the Bible, but now billions of us have access to it. In spite of this, many believers are more faithful to reading their daily newspaper than their Bibles.

It’s no wonder why we don’t grow. We can’t watch television for three hours, then read the Bible for three minutes and expect to grow.

Many who claim to believe the Bible “from cover to cover” have never read it from cover to cover. But if you will read the Bible just fifteen minutes a day, you will read completely through it once a year.

If you cut out one 30-minute television program a day and read your Bible instead, you will read through the entire Bible twice a year.

Daily Bible reading will keep you in range of God’s voice. This is why God instructed the kings of Israel to always keep a copy of his Word nearby: “He should keep it with him all the time and read from it every day of his life” (Deuteronomy 17:19a NCV).

But don’t just keep it near you; read it regularly! A simple tool that is helpful for this is a daily Bible reading plan. It will prevent you from just skipping around the Bible arbitrarily and overlooking sections.

Talk About It

With what projects or hobbies do you show great discipline in your attention to them? How can you apply that same discipline to your daily Bible reading?

– How do you think 15 minutes a day in God’s Word would change the way you approach your everyday life?

Let the People Renew Their Strength

Isaiah 41:1

Let the people renew their strength.

C.H. Spurgeon

All things on earth need to be renewed. No created thing continueth by itself. “Thou renewest the face of the year,” was the Psalmist’s utterance. Even the trees, which wear not themselves with care, nor shorten their lives with labour, must drink of the rain of heaven and suck from the hidden treasures of the soil. The cedars of Lebanon, which God has planted, only live because day by day they are full of sap fresh drawn from the earth. Neither can man’s life be sustained without renewal from God. As it is necessary to repair the waste of the body by the frequent meal, so we must repair the waste of the soul by feeding upon the Book of God, or by listening to the preached Word, or by the soul-fattening table of the ordinances. How depressed are our graces when means are neglected! What poor starvelings some saints are who live without the diligent use of the Word of God and secret prayer! If our piety can live without God it is not of divine creating; it is but a dream; for if God had begotten it, it would wait upon Him as the flowers wait upon the dew. Without constant restoration we are not ready for the perpetual assaults of hell, or the stern afflictions of heaven, or even for the strifes within. When the whirlwind shall be loosed, woe to the tree that hath not sucked up fresh sap, and grasped the rock with many intertwisted roots.When tempests arise, woe to the mariners that have not strengthened their mast, nor cast their anchor, nor sought the haven. If we suffer the good to grow weaker, the evil will surely gather strength and struggle desperately for the mastery over us; and so, mayhap, a painful desolation, and a lamentable disgrace may follow. Let us draw near to the footstool of divine mercy in humble entreaty, and we shall realize the fulfillment of the promise, “They that wait on the Lord shall renew their strength.”

Find the Book

In a Sunday school some children were told to find scrolls hidden away with scriptures written on them. They were promised some goodies and off they went with excitement and anticipation, enthusiasm, wanting to outdo each other. They were moving chairs and tables, climbing ‘mountains’, descending ‘valleys’ and poring purses.

The congregation was set alight with joy and affirmation which renewed and underlined  the importance of the Word of God

In many homes, the Bible is hidden away on shelves whilst there are places in the world where Bibles are a rarity -a treasure to be hunted and treasured.

You really don’t know what you have until you lose it.  And if you don’t use it, you’ve lost it.

May we find the word of God and the voice of God for our lives today and always.
