Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth -2 Timothy 2:15
The only thing in life for which you must develop a voracious appetite is the Word of God; be a Word-addict. Some people are addicted to the wrong things in life; but being a Word-addict will make you a success. The same way a pupil or student is expected to attend classes in order to make good grades, God expects you to attend to His Word to be successful in life: “My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh”. – Proverbs 4:20-22
Success in life is dependent on the amount of God’s Word you know and put to work. This is the reason you must give yourself wholly to the Word of God through study and meditation (1 Timothy 4:15). Make a habit of studying God’s Word consistently, for God’s Word is the food for your spirit. The Bible says, ‘But he (Jesus) answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.’ (Matthew 4:4). Studying the Word and having your spirit imparted with revelation knowledge will help you live the triumphant life in Christ.
In studying the Bible, ask the Holy Spirit to grant you understanding and fill your spirit with the revelation of His Word. He’s the author of the scriptures and will unveil truths to you from the Word if you ask Him. As you give yourself to the Word, you’ll discover the beauty of God’s righteousness and the glorious life He has given you. You’ll get to know His perfect will and walk in pre-ordained pathways, producing results to the glory of Christ.
