I’ve discovered some useful strategies to saturate myself with the Word of God. Download audio books or purchase CD’s of the Bible to listen to while sleeping, running errands, driving, etc. When we are unable to read God’s word this really helps. This is not the preaching of the word, which has its place, it is the pure Word of God being imparted to us while we listen and take it in. When I go to sleep listening to the word being read aloud I often wake up more refreshed and strengthened to face the day.
As you saturate yourself with My word I change you. I cleanse, refresh, make you new. I give you a new heart and a new mind. Set your mind fully on My word, My things, Me and I will make you into what I created you to be. All is possible through Me. When you are filled with My word you believe this. Believing for what is impossible with man but possible with Me will come as natural as breathing in and out.
I have such beauty to show you, I have so much of Myself to impart to you. Many do not receive, for they do not seek. Many seek amiss. They do not know it is theirs to receive. They do not know of this walk on the heights with Me. Seek Me, saturate yourself with My word to walk on higher levels with Me, get to know Me, and your confidence will be sure. Come before Me and worship Me, pray to Me, be still before Me.
As you fill yourself with Me your need to sedate yourself against the disappointments of the world will fall off, this drive to escape and satisfy yourself with your own means will fall off of you like a blanket of despair. Many sedate to escape feeling disappointed, but I tell you I do not disappoint, I will not leave you desolate. My light can dispel any darkness. I will clothe you with a new robe of peace and righteousness and purity. I will cause rivers of living waters to flow from you to refresh others. I can make you new. I can even change the desires of your heart to desire more of Me.
As you saturate yourself with Me I cleanse, I change. It is often imperceptible and a mystery to you as to how I do it, but you see the evidence of the results. You will find you are above the circumstance that used to drag you down and discourage you. You find that you have love for those that hate you and spitefully use you. When you saturate yourself with My pure word I permeate you.
I can even give you faith to be more than a conqueror. When the situation appears hopeless and bleak, I can make your hart to rise and swell with joy and believe My will over a situation. I have come to give life and give it more abundantly. To heal the sick, to set the captive free, to release the prisoners who suffer in iron chains. This is My will. This is My desire, to do exceedingly abundantly above all that you ask or seek.
I can give you wisdom even how to care for your own body. Ask Me, and I will give it. Not a self-care that is feverish and over concerned with ailments, medicines, exercise, fears of toxins. Ask Me what your body needs so that you can walk in full health and beauty doing My will. Many take this to obsession when they do it in their own strength, but when done in me it is a delight for you and all around you. There is freedom in Me.
