“…I will stand my watch and set myself on the rampart, and watch to see what He will say to me and what I will answer when I am corrected…” —Habakkuk 2:1 (NKJV)

I have seen many who are not willing to pay attention to God’s word; they are not interested in trying to know what God has to say about the issues of life. They give value to lots of other information except the word and at the end of the day; no tangible progress or fulfilment is achieved because they ignore God’s word which gives direction, guidance and satisfaction. Beloved, if you ever want to experience an excellent life with an all-round success with no stagnation or sorrow included, you must learn to train yourself to pay attention to God’s word. In it lies all you require to succeed in this world. When God was commissioning Joshua on his new assignment, God specifically said to him, “…this book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it, for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success…” Joshua 1:8 Isn’t this amazing? God told him to make sure the book of the law never departs from his mouth, and not only so, he was to meditate on it day and night, why? Because in it lies the secrets of life that Joshua needed to be an excellent leader and behold, Joshua indeed was an outstanding leader.

He paid attention to God’s counsel and made sure he lived by the word. In the same way, if you want to be an outstanding person with an outstanding result in this generation, you must choose to pay attention to God’s word. Don’t only hear it, listen to what it says, try to understand the message that is being communicated and do all you can to carry out what it says. If you don’t understand what God’s word is saying to you at any point in time, don’t shrug it off and say it is one of those things. You must make an extra effort to try to understand what it says. Whatever it is you don’t understand in God’s word, might just be where your blessing has been kept, so to unlock this blessing, you have to pray and ask God to grant you understanding which He will eventually do because it is His desire to see you blessed. Beloved, don’t behave like the people out there who have no value for God’s word and do not really care what God has to say. Be interested in God and His word, remember He created the world and to live successfully and fulfil your purpose, you must care about what He has to say. If you will begin from today to give thoughts to God’s word and consider what it says carefully, I guarantee that your life will not remain the same. Hallelujah!


Paying attention to God’s word opens you to God’s leadership and purpose for your life


Father, I thank you for your counsel today, I declare that henceforth, an extra attention will be given to your word and as I do this, my spirit will continually be awoken to your voice not just only to recognize it but to do what it says and as I do those words, I am making progress in Jesus name. Amen!
