When we read the Word of God with Faith it fills our hearts with Life. We are able to feel God’s comfort and power. His presence feels very near.
Take for example my recent experience. I opened up to Peter 1:24-25 which says “The grass withers the flower fades, but the word of God stands forever”. Wow, what power, what truth!. The grass will wither and so will the flower fade away but truly His word will stand forever! Then it was here that the Word took effect in my heart showing me the grandness of God and His power which resulted in a sudden fruit of Joy (a joy which I lacked but I received after I believed with my heart the Word of God).
When the heart is filled with worldly things however, we become dry, our minds become clouded with fears and worries, making it difficult to put our faith in God’s Word. The vain things of this world chock our faith (Matthew 13:22). Sin also hardens our heart with unbelief (Hebrews 3:13) and without faith it is impossible to please God (Hebrews 11:6). If we are not careful to fill our hearts with the truths of God’s Word, doing what it says, then we will bear no fruit and without fruit there is no entering into the Kingdom of God (Matthew 3:10).
“He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.” – Matthew 13:22
The cares of the world (or the worries of this life), the deceitfulness of riches (a love and greed for money) and the pleasures of life (worldly lust) will block us from bearing any fruit.
Jesus Christ is the Word of God (John 1:1) in Him we find this Life when we believe in Him; and when we do then we are able to open the scriptures and be filled with life as we read it with faith. There are many vain things in the world that look attracting but in the end they make us feel dead! But as Jesus said “I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live” (John 11:25).
“This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.” – Joshua 1:8
