It Takes Practice
Practice is essential to the Christian life. Paul told the Christians in Philippi "The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things; and the God of peace shall be with you." Philippians 4:9. You see, it is not enough to know the truth. We must apply the truth to our lives so we can receive the benefit and blessing from the truth. Jesus said, "If you know these things, you are blessed if you do them" (John 13:17). That is where the blessing is found – in ‘doing’ the will of God. So … Are you doing it? Are you putting God’s Word into practice in your daily life? Are you seeking Him, trusting Him, telling others about Him, and giving to advance His Kingdom? Listen, if you will do His Word into practice in your life, you WILL see the blessings flow ... and "the God of peace shall be with you." And in THAT we find Real Hope.
