“Thus was the order of march of the children of Israel, according to their armies, when they began their journey.” – Numbers 10:28

You are part of God’s army. You enlisted when you said yes to Him. In order to take new territory for the Kingdom, you must stay within your ranks. You must be faithful to the assignment God has entrusted you with. Because if you are not, your fellow soldiers will be in danger.

Declaration: I’m faithful to complete the assignments God has given me. I’m not a lone ranger, but part of the army of God.

The Sword of God

This is not a time to be nonchalant about knowing the Word of God. We need to really know the Word. I mean, we gotta be in it every single day. You gotta be looking. You got to be reading. You gotta be listening. You have to speak it. You have to know the presence of the Lord. There is no substitute for the presence of King Jesus.

You and I must have a high value for what Psalms 119 calls God’s “beautiful words.” Why?

“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.” – John 10:27

It’s like God Almighty is saying, “I want to show you something. Please have a value for my presence. Please have a value for my voice because I don’t want you to be lost.”

“So, faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the Word of God.” – Romans 10:17

Friends, we must hunger for the voice of God and the faith it builds. The Word became flesh, right?

“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst after righteousness, for they shall be filled.” – Matthew 5:6

Are you hungry for Jesus? Honestly. Or, is that too old school for you? I wanna tell you, it’s up to you to be impressed with the goodness of God. If you’re not incredibly impressed with the goodness of God in His word, you’re way too impressed with evil.

You have to know the Word of God before you know every Marvel character in the comic universe. If you know every actor in the “Yellowstone” but you don’t know every prophet of the Lord, there’s some kind of a problem with your priorities. You see that, right?

You have to want to think God thoughts. If you’re not in the Word, how are you going to get God thoughts? God is inviting you into incredible places today and you need to hear Him. Pray in the name of King Jesus and decide today to seek the Lord and commit to going deeper in His Word daily. It’s who He is.
