How to Apply the Bible to Your Life

How to Apply the Bible to Your Life

Read God’s Word. Always read God’s word in the present tense. It is not what God used to do, it is what God is doing for you right now, today.

Believe God’s Word. The Bible contains 7,000 promises to you, about you, and for you. It is not just an ancient book, it is a Living Word.

Memorize God’s Word. The time to prepare for battle is long before the enemy troops are banging on the door of the castle. By memorizing God’s word, you prepare to defend yourself from Satan’s attack.

Speak God’s Word. God’s word in your mouth is just as powerful as God’s words in His month. Faith comes by hearing. You should read the word out loud to yourself because the voice you believe the most is your own.

Confess God’s Word. Confession of God’s promises brings possession of God’s promises. Life and death are in the power of the tongue.

Trust God’s Word. If you cannot trust God, what can you trust? Your friends might desert you, your family might fail you, your investments might disappear, your newspaper might give you a bad report, but God’s Word is true.

Obey God’s Word. What use is God’s Word if you do not apply it to your life?

Live God’s Word.
