Focal Reading: Proverbs 4:7-9
Beloved, if you really want to get the wisdom of God, you’ll have to do more than casually read the Scriptures a few minutes a day or post scriptural pictures on social media. You’ll have to feed on them night and day. You’ll have to get rid of the trash you’ve been feeding into your consciousness by reprogramming your mind with the Word of God.
Now there may be some of you that read this say: “Hold up Bishop, Houston’ that’s not normal!!!”
And you’re right!!!
But think about this:
Most college athletes practices for hours every day, an Olympian spend many hours in a day training for their event. They do it because they’re abnormally dedicated to their goals.
Beloved, the same is true for you. If you’re going to achieve the kind of spiritual excellence you’re hungry for, you’re going to have to be abnormally dedicated to the Word of God. This means you just might have to carry your streaming device or recorder device around with you everywhere you go. It just might mean that you’ll have your razor or hair brush in one hand and your streaming device or recorder device in the other or a streaming device or recorder device in one hand and a fork in the other.
Beloved, do whatever it takes to totally saturate yourself with the Word of God. I wouldn’t speak to you any differently if I were your commanding officer about to send you into combat against the best skilled selected troops of an unrestrained enemy. You’re God’s front line assault force. You have an enemy who is doing his very best to abolish you. In this crucial, all-out, unrestrained offensive war, Satan will dispatch hell’s choicest personnel to knock a patch of hair out of your head or bring you down.
Beloved, if you’re going to make it through in victory, you’re going to have to put in work!!!
Beloved, be abnormally dedicated.
Have a blessed day. 😀
