THE ROLE OF THE BIBLE IN PRAYER
Another definition of abide is to live up to. Do you live up to what the Bible tells you to do? Do you live up to the standard it requires? e final definition of abide is to carry out.
Are you carrying out or distributing the Word of God?
The Word of God is more than a Book to put into us; it is the words God wants to hear out of us.
Why does the Word of God have bearing upon my prayer life? This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but though 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
Do you ever think what God thinks about His words? God loves those words.
Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. Matthew 24:35
All that will remain are the words of God. God loves His words. He loves them so much He calls His Son, "The Word." those words are so important to God that He says, "If you want your prayers to be answered, then I would like to hear my words. God says, If they are wonderful to Me, then I want to hear you using them.
God doesn't like Idol words. God doesn't like critical words. god doesn't like tail bearing. God says, I like my words, and I want to hear them out of your moth. In fact, they should never, ever cease to be coming out of your mouth.
Supplication is convincing God that you want to go where He is going and that wherever He goes is a delightful place to go.
When was the last time you used God's words in normal conversation You say, "well, I used them when I win a soul to Christ." Do you ever use them in a normal conversation, like at the supper table? I am working on that in my life. Talking about prayer is a rare commodity nowadays. What words of God do you use? With whom you ever talk about the Bible? Do you and your spouse ever talk about the Bible? God wants us to hear you use his Words. God wants to hear your opinion, your thoughts, your love, and your affection for His words.
The Word of God provides stability of thought during unstable times.
When you have unstable times like hearing about the unrest in the Middle East, and about war, bombs, rockets, and bloodshed or if your marriage is disintegrating and your spouse is absolute out of control, you feel like your world is falling apart within you. What do you do? You go to God. God says, "Read my words because the Word of God gives stability in unstable times."
