MEMORY VERSE: Hear the word of the LORD, ye that tremble at his word; Your brethren that hated you, that cast you out for my name’s sake, said, Let the LORD be glorified: but he shall appear to your joy, and they shall be ashamed. Isaiah 66:5
BIBLE PASSAGE: Isaiah 66:1-5
INTRODUCTION: How do you react to the word of God? Do you tremble at His word or are you one of those who do not care? – Jas.2:19; Heb.12:1.
GOD’S WORD IS CONSTANT
God’s word is settled – Ps.119:89. What has the word said about you, your family and your situation? It shall surely come to pass – Hab.2:3. As long as there is an area in your life for which the word of God needs to attend to, that portion of the word will not pass until it is has accomplished its purpose in that area in your life – Mk.13:31. The word did not fail Peter. It will not fail you – Lk.5:5-7. The word did not fail Sarah and Hannah – Gen.21:2; 1 Sam.1:17-20. The word worked for the Centurion in Luke 7:7-10. You will be empowered – Acts 10:38.
MY ATTITUDE TO THE WORD
How do you receive the word of God? Is it with joy or nonchalantly? If you tremble at God’s word, you will pay attention to it, take notes and put it into practice. You will not let the word of God fall to the ground. You will hold the Bible and everything about God in high esteem. God looks on one man according to His word in Isaiah 66:2 – a man of contrite spirit, which trembles at His word. God will make a difference between His children on their ability to tremble at His word. Those who do so will joyfully be rewarded while those who do not will be rewarded with shame.
Because God cannot fail, His word cannot fail. Those who tremble at God’s word never tremble before their enemy
