Listening to the radio this morning I was reminded of the fragility of life.
It was ‘thought for the day’ and the chap was talking about the poppy; how fragile it was yet how it could sprout forth from the worst of ground.
This did remind me of life; it is fragile but it can also bring forth the most wonderful results from difficult circumstances.
But wherever it comes from and however successful it is, life (in terms of the physical on earth) is not for ever.
Life can indeed be snuffed out like a candle, we see this ever day if we watch the news and read the papers.
There is something that lasts forever, the Word of God.
And the good news is that while we are on earth for this short time the Word can facilitate us having a wonderful and abundant life, a life full of blessings and provision.
The Word of God teaches us about Jesus and His finished work, and it is knowledge of Jesus that leads us into an abundant and godly life (2 Peter 1 v 3).
We can renew our minds through the Word of God and see transformation (positive and permanent change) in our soul (mind, will and emotions) and body (Romans 12 v 1 and 2).
The Word is eternal and cannot be corrupted and it is the agent for positive and lasting change in our lives.
Let the Word do what it was designed for, to change you!
Speak this out today….”Thank you for the Word of God and thank you that it is the agent for change in my life”.
1 Peter 1 v 24 and 25…..For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away; But the word of the Lord endurerth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you
