Whatever you call it, Godís formula for success wouldnít be complete without it.
PRINCIPLE #3: SATURATION IN GODíS WORD (v. 8)
(Illustration of buying a computer without an operating system, and then trying to install all of the necessary software. I could have saved myself hours of misery if I had simply read the instructions.)
Some of you have husbands like that too, donít you?
Mistakes are made because we donít read the instruction manual. That same principle is true when it comes to the Christian walk. Many of our mistakes could have been avoided if we had saturated ourselves in Godís word.
One thing that has occurred to me is that ignorance is no excuse for acting stupid. The mistakes I made with my computer were made in ignorance, but that didnít stop me from suffering the consequences for being stupid. My ignorance was a deliberate, voluntary ignorance. The information I needed was available.
When we try to live without consulting Godís word, itís a deliberate, voluntary ignorance. But that ignorance will not stop us from suffering the consequences for being stupid. The wisdom we need is available.
Itís not just about reading it; itís about meditating on it and letting Godís word saturate our spirit.
Godís Formula for Success works, but there are no shortcuts. It calls us to be strong and courageous. It calls us to be obedient to His commands. It calls us to saturate our spirit with His word.
