TOPIC: Interest: A Doorway To Insight
SCRIPTURE: The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple. Psalm 119:130.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: One reason for lack of insight in God’s Word is lack of interest, especially in studying the Scripture.
Seeds of Destiny 4th August 2021 Devotional Message
Our anchor Scripture reveals that the entrance of God’s Word gives light and understanding to the simple. This means, it is not the Word of God that you read or hear that brings results but the Word that enters into you.
Now, what do we do for the Word of God to enter into us? How do we access the Word? And why is this important?
Interest brings insight
Hosea 6:1-3 says,
Come, and let us return unto the LORD: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up. After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight. Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.
This means, we shall know if we are interested in knowing. Where there is no interest, there can be no insight.
One reason for lack of insight in God’s Word is lack of interest, especially in studying the Scriptures.
People are interested in many things. Some are interested in what to eat, drink, drive and wear. Having interest in these things is not bad. But when your interest in what to drink, eat, wear or drive is more than your interest in God and His Word, you will not necessarily receive insight from the Scriptures.
Beloved, to see insight from God’s Word, ensure that you are interested in God’s Word.
Remember This: One reason for lack of insight in God’s Word is lack of interest, especially in studying the Scriptures.
1. Ask God to rekindle your interest in His Word.
2. Discipline yourself to study God’s Word diligently.
PRAYER: Lord, I ask that You rekindle my interest in Your Word. I receive the grace and discipline to be diligent in studying Your Word, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

REFLECTION: What you see out of the Word determines what you see out of life. But what is your greatest passion in life? Is there something you are more passionate for than God and His Word?
PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: Receive grace to see things out of Scripture that would completely liberate you in Jesus’ Name.
