More Than Instructions – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional January 7th



(The Word Is Your Life, So Set Your Heart On It)

TO THE BIBLE: Deuteronomy 32:46-47
‘…He said to them: “Set your hearts on all the words which I testify among you today, which you shall command your children to be careful to observe—all the words of this law. For it is not a futile thing for you, because it is your life, and by this word you shall prolong your days in the land which you cross over the Jordan to possess.”’

When Lewis’ dad surprised him with the latest video game console, his joy knew no bounds. Eagerly, he invited his friends over for a test session.

Excitement filled the air as they unpacked the console, connected it to the TV, and prepared for a gaming marathon.

To their dismay, the console refused to turn on! The reason was they’d overlooked reading the manual during the setup and missed a critical step.

Once they followed the instructions meticulously, the console sprang to life, and they were able to enjoy their gaming experience to the fullest.

Just as Lewis’ game console came with a manual to help him operate it properly, we also have a manual for our lives—God’s Word.

It instructs and guides us, but it’s more than a book of instructions; God’s Word is life! The children of Israel saw the Law as instructions, but Moses regarded the Law as life.

As a result, Moses knew the ways of God, while the children of Israel were only acquainted with His acts.

The Word of God is the mirror of God that unveils His character, as well as His image of you. The Word of God mirrors you.

For example, the Word says, “…count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience” (James 1:2-3).

What God is showing you here is beyond an instruction; He’s showing you the glory in the Word and the kind of person He’s made you; you’re the one who counts it all joy irrespective of the tests, trials, and tribulations, because you know you’ll always triumph!

This is your life. Think, talk, and live according to the picture of you that you see in the Word! Be who the Word says you are!

Satan, circumstances, and situations may try to sway you otherwise, but stick only with the picture the Word of God has presented to you. And as you keep looking into the mirror of God, you become what you see.

Dear Father, I thank you for the glory in your Word that is more than an instruction. As I meditate on the Word, I’m transfigured into the exact image of what I see from glory to glory in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
