The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple (Psalm 119:130).
Notice the instructive words of the psalmist in our opening verse; it lets us know that it's the entrance of God's Word that gives light. This means the Word has to get into your spirit! The Word in you, mingled with your spirit, is what God wants! It'll make you what it talks about, and change your life. When the Word of God gets into you, it brings you light. This means that the man who doesn't have the Word of God in his spirit doesn't have any light, and as a result, walks in darkness.
With the Word in your spirit, you're sure to make progress in life. It's not just about listening to messages on TV or DVDs; it's beyond that. You need to have the message inside you, in your heart. That's what makes the difference. If you took a corn seed, and kept it in the best refrigerator in the world, you wouldn't have any crop. If you placed it in the best Bank and most secured vault, it still wouldn't produce any crop, because that's not the right environment for seeds to grow. A seed must be placed in the right environment for it to grow and produce a crop.
Your spirit is the receptacle system for the Word of God; that's where the light of God is: "The spirit of man is the candle of the LORD, searching all the inward parts of the belly" (Proverbs 20:27). Some people can quote many scriptures by heart, but the scriptures don't do much for them from inside, because it's in their heads, not in their hearts.
Your spirit must digest the Word until it affects your way of thinking, and gives you a new mind-set. If the message hasn't changed your mind, then it hasn't entered you, and that means its influence and impact in your life is limited. So, get the Word into you, and it'll remain in you, and produce what it talks about; it'll be in you a vital force that causes you to live accordingly.
Dear Lord, your Word is stored up in my heart, and it produces result in every area of my life. I delight in your Word, and as I meditate therein, I'm energized for victory; transformed from glory to glory, and my mind is renewed, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
Joshua 1:8 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.
1 Timothy 4:15 Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all.
