Two decisions are absolutely vital in keeping the Word first place in all you do.

First, renew your mind with the Word of God. To do this, we encourage you to make the quality decision to spend time reading and meditating on God’s Word daily. Supporting this commitment by attending a church that preaches the uncompromised Word, and studying after good Christian teachers are also great ways to grow closer to God and His Word.

Secondly, renewing your mind will not be effective if what you are learning is sabotaged by what comes out of your mouth. As you continue to renew your mind with the Word of God, the next step is to make the words of your mouth line up with God’s Word. Proverbs 18:21 says, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue.” Learn to say what God says about any given situation. Use Scripture as a basis for your prayer life.

Here are some examples of how you can speak God’s Word by faith: “God is on my side!” (Psalm 118:6; Hebrews 13:6). “Since God is for me, who can be against me?” (Romans 8:31). “No weapon formed against me will succeed.” (Isaiah 54:17). “My God will supply all my needs!” (Philippians 4:19). “The Holy Spirit is guiding me toward the truth.” (John 16:13). “Greater is He that is in me than he who is in the world!” (1 John 4:4).

As you put God’s Word first in your life, you will know how to handle the problems of life when they come. According to His Word, it is God’s will that you live a victorious Christian life, overcoming every problem (John 16:33; Romans 8:37; 1 John 4:4)!
