“But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves” – James 1:22
Many Christians hear the Word of God time after time, and are even excited by what they hear. But they are not, and will not apply the Word of God to their life; because it is not their desire to change their lifestyle, behavior and conduct. What they do not realize is that they are walking in the opposite direction of truth, rather than pleasing their Father in heaven.
Anytime you choose to do things your way, when you are told to do it a certain way, you are out of compliance and in contradiction of a command or instructions to given to you through the Word of God.
To please the Lord, you must not only hear and study His Word, you must be a doer of the Word. You must walk in the truth. And if you are truly walking in obedience to God’s Word, it will be witnessed through your life as one who truly love and honor the Lord. Furthermore, obedience to God’s word will be the very reason He will cause you to be prosperous in every other area of your life.
If you desire to have a prosperous and successful life God’s way, be a doer of His word to the letter; and the Lord’s richest blessings will be yours according to His Divine wisdom, in all other areas of your life.
“And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper” – Psalm 1:3
The man who purposely, deliberately and consistently study to know the truth in God’s Word, and then walks in that truth with love, is the man with a healthy and prosperous soul by God’s definition.
