How to walk in the power of God

So get rid of all uncleanness and rampant outgrowth of wickedness, and in a humble (gentle, modest) spirit receive and welcome the Word which implanted and rooted [in your hearts] contains the power to save your souls.
But be doers of the Word [obey the message], and not merely listeners to it, betraying yourselves [ into deception by reasoning contrary to the Truth].

James 1:21-22

We see from James 1:21 that the Word has the power to save us from a life of sin, but only as it is received and welcome in our hearts. When we pay wholehearted attention to God's Word, it becomes implanted and rooted in us.

If you and I are to walk in the power of God, we need to heed the advice of verse 22 to become doers of the Word and not hearers only. Otherwise we deceive ourselves by reasoning that is contrary to the truth.

It is the truth, and the truth alone, that sets us free and keeps us free. In order for it to work in our lives, and in order for us to receive God's promises from the Word, we must be responsible and obedient to the Word. We cannot try to excuse away our sins and weaknesses. Instead, we must become bondservants of God and not to our human nature or to other people or things.

The bottom line is this: God is your Helper. He is your Healer, He has a personalized plan for your life. Make sure you know what it is; then begin to walk in obedience to the truth one step at a time. Obeying the Word requires consistency and diligence. It cannot be "hit and miss." You cannot just try it to see if it works, but you must have a dedication and commitment to obey the Word whatever the outcome.

I encourage you today to keep your mind tuned in to God's Word more than anything else. Let His Word become planted deep into your heart and listen to what it tells you. Obey Him. Then you will be a doer of the Word, not just a hearer of it---and you will walk in the power of God.
