GIVE PRECEDENCE TO THE WORD OF GOD

TEXT: JOB 23:12
“I have not departed from the commands of His lips; I have treasured the words of his mouth more than my daily bread.” (Job 23:12)
As obedient believers; how to walk in obedience to God’s word should be paramount in our hearts, we should place our priority on how we can live to please God, rather than striving to make success in life.
The book of Joshua 1: 8 says “this book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thy shall meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein; for thou shalt make thy way prosperous and then thou shalt have good success.”
Your success in life depends on how important and serious you take the word of God, if you commit yourself studying and obeying the word of God, you will not need to be struggling on how to make it in life, because the word of God empowers, enables, elevates, instructs, gives divine wisdom and ideas that can transport you to a height you can never imagine. If you give priority to the word of God, the Holy Spirit would endow you with great ideas and new revelations by changing the scripture into pictures that will change your life forever.

There are many benefits in giving priority to the word of God, when you devote your time studying; you are gaining access to God’s treasure banks; where fresh ideas and revelations can be gotten. Let not your priority be on the pleasures of this world, not on power or wealth; but on the word of God, because it is in him you can find true riches and peace of mind. “Submit to God and be at peace with Him, in this way prosperity will come to you. Accept instructions from His mouth, and lay up His words in your heart.” (Job 22:21-22).
