Some people think it is very difficult for one to enjoy limitless opportunities and rise to the top. Also, others think that there is nothing like enjoying a world of no limits in their affair. The question now is: Is there such a thing as a world of no limit? There is something as one living in and enjoying a world of no limits. It is a world where you will have things the way you want them at all times!
Last week, I brought you the introductory part of this series. I showed you some examples of people who enjoyed a world of no limits. Also, I taught on empowerment as a factor for enjoying a world of no limits. This week, I will teach on a principal component of the engine for your flight. It is the Word of God. You will see how God’s Word can make one to enjoy a world of no limits. The Word of God says: “Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear”. (Hebrews 11:3). It is very clear that the Word of God played a prominent role in the creation of the world. From this scripture, we know that creation was begotten by the Word of God.
The Word of God says: “Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power…” (Hebrews 1:3). The Word of God is one thing that puts you in command of everything. The Bible is made up of hidden treasures and until your mind’s eyes are opened, you cannot see beyond the letters into the wonders.
When reading the Word, your prayer should always be: “Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law” (Psalm 119:18). You need to be able to see before you can possess. Nothing is appropriated in the kingdom without first being seen. Until you see beyond the letters in the Word, you can’t behold them. The Word that will stir your mind and make you to enjoy a world of no limits is the Word that you have seen.
Sound wisdom comes from the Word (Psalm 119:98). It is the commandment of God. It is what stirs the wisdom deposit on your inside to produce result. One of the results is to make you enjoy unlimited breakthroughs. Hearing and studying the Word are ways of feeding on the Word. But not all hearing and studying lead to the unveiling of the treasures behind the letter.
So, how can we lay hold of the gold in gold mine? How can we tap the goodies in Word, so we can enjoy a world of no limits? It is through meditation. Food is not eaten to increase the size of the stomach. You eat food to release essential body nutrients and fluids into your system. The food that will nourish the body must produce body nutrients. The food that must produce these nutrients must pass through the digestive process.
This goes for the Word of God, which is the food of the spirit. You can only extract the treasures in it by meditating on it. Meditation is the process of digestion, which leads to absorption and assimilation of the Word. Meditation is reasoning in scriptures.
If you don’t retain the substance of the Word in you, you have no means of sustenance. The excitement of hearing the revelation will go and if you don’t have the substance, you may go with it. The Ethiopian Eunuch read the Word but it did him no good, because he lacked an understanding of it. The nobility of the Berean Christians was revealed through their daily search and reasoning in the scriptures after listening to great messages.
Meditation is thinking through. Pondering on the Word is the gateway to a refreshing from above. You can’t get the juice out of an orange without squeezing it. Squeeze out the Word of God and get it into your system, for it is the entrance of the Word into you that brings light, not the reading, not the hearing. It has to be broken down and analyzed before it can be absorbed. There must be no careless glancing over the scriptures. There must be a digging deeper. As the Word penetrates, the mind receives illumination and the body is directed on what steps to take.
