I am currently writing this DIG as I invigilate an examination; the students are working hard so I am taking the opportunity to write this DIG.
I have just taught a course for two days and if the students pass the assessment they get a recognised qualification.
In order to pass the assessments the students had to study and understand, and they benefit because of this work.
I can also testify that if you study hard and understand it can result in benefits.
A similar thing is true with regards to the Word of God.
We are told that we should rightly divide the Word; that means to learn and understand (2 Timothy 2 v 15).
If we do this we will renew our minds and be transformed or changed, and that is of great benefit to us (Romans 12 v 2).
We can for example understand what the Word says about healing and be healed.
We can understand what the Word says about prosperity and be prosperous.
The Word is the agent for positive change in our lives and we see the benefits through study and understanding.
The good news is that we do not have to pass an examination to benefit, we just need to understand and believe.
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord for your Word and thank you that it is the agent for change in my life”.
2 Timothy 2 v 15…..Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth
