For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.
I Thessalonians 2:13
The Bible is clear that to those whom are saved- God’s Word will effectually work in their lives. The Bible should have a great effect in all we do. When we accept Christ- we are trusting in Him as the Truth. These believers in I Thessalonians trusted in the Word of God as it is in truth.
Can we say the same? Are we fully trusting in the Word of God? Is God’s Word having a great effect upon our life? If our answer is no, we have some things to consider. Have we been born again? We must believe on the Lord Jesus Christ to be our Saviour. If we have trusted Christ with our eternal salvation- have we trusted Him with our daily living? We must surrender to live our lives in obedience to Him. If God is calling upon us- are we listening? Has the Lord’s still small voice called upon you- to read His Word? to spend time with Him in prayer? to walk with Him in obedience?
It is exciting to see God’s hand working. All we must do is trust in Him. Trust in His Word. We have a promise that if we seek Him- we will find Him. If He is calling you to obedience- then answer Him. Answer Him, “Speak, Lord; for thy servant heareth.”
When we listen to His voice- we will see His hand effectually working in our life.
