Devotion: Have A Word Harvest

Recently, we talked about attending to and listening carefully to the words of God.  We learned that God’s words were full of abundant life for all who hunted for, looked for, or sought after his words (Proverbs 4:20-22).  We also talked about knowing that we have faith because “God has dealt to every man the measure of faith” (Romans 12:3), which we found that each of us was given “the same amount of faith.”  We mentioned how “faith comes by hearing (listening) and hearing (listening) by the word of God” (Romans 10:17) and we know what happens when we attend to and listening carefully to the words of God.

We mentioned another benefit to attending to and listening carefully to the words of God was that in our time of need, we would automatically speak those words because they were abundantly stored in our heart.  And we know from scripture that whatever we have stored in abundance in our heart will eventually come out through our mouth (Luke 6:45).  Then we learned that when we speak the words of God, we actually return his words to him, and according to God, they do not return to him void but will accomplish what they were intended to accomplish, which is to produce fruit in the earth realm for his children (Isaiah 55:10-11).

We learned from previous devotional messages that “death and life are in the power of the tongue” (Proverbs 18:21) and that the words we speak are like seeds that are planted in the ground and from those seeds, we reap those things for which you have sown or in this case spoken (Galatians 6:7 TLB).  With this information in your arsenal, you should be well equipped to “have a word harvest.” Again, we pray that today’s inspirational message will bless you, inform you, and that you will be the better for having read it.  If blessed by this message please share so that others may be blessed as well.

Enjoy your blessings - KW
