PRAISE & WORSHIP:-
THY WORD IS A LAMP TO MY FEET
1 Thy Word is a lamp to my feet,
A light to my path alway,
To guide and to save me from sin,
And show me the heav’nly way.
Thy Word have I hid in my heart,
That I might not sin against Thee;
That I might not sin, that I might not sin,
Thy Word have I hid in my heart.
2 Forever, O Lord, is Thy Word
Established and fixed on high;
Thy faithfulness unto all men
Abideth for ever nigh. (Refrain)
3 At morning, at noon, and at night
I ever will give Thee praise;
For Thou art my portion, O Lord,
And shall be thro’ all my days! (Refrain)
4 Thro’ Him whom Thy Word hath foretold,
The Saviour and Morning Star,
Salvation and peace have been bro’t
To those who have strayed afar. (Refrain)

26 Sept 22 MESSAGE:
A misunderstanding of the meaning of the word of God can lead to its misguided application. We must understand how a passage is applied when it was first given before we can understand how it applies now.
When Jesus said “…To day shalt thou be with me in paradise” (Luke 23:43), its immediate application was for the thief beside Him but because all scripture is inspired by God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, the Lord wants all believers to take advantage of its full application to their lives. Obviously, the contemporary application is not that each Christian will die today and be with Jesus in paradise.
But one way we can apply this text is in terms of preparing for death by examining ourselves daily because it is possible for the trumpet to sound at any time or for death to come. You can also apply the text regarding the presence of Christ. Matthew 28:20b says, ..And, 10, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”
As Christians, Christ is always present within us, thus He is with us today even though we are not yet in paradise. How does a fresh awareness of Christ’s presence affect your prayers or outlook on the rest of the day? Jesus’ promise to the thief is an example of how not every promise is meant to be applied today exactly the same way it was originally given. Yet many other promises are general, universal, and perpetual in their application. Some obvious examples are John 3:16, Romans 10:9, Psalms 23: 1, Psalms 91, etc.
How can we know which passage should be applied somewhat differently than when first given? This is where a growing knowledge of scripture through hearing, reading, studying and in particular, meditating on God’s word pays dividends. For the better we understand the Bible, the better equipped we will be to apply it.
1. Word of God, become real in my life, in the name of Jesus (John 1:14).
2. Word of God, quench every darkness in my soul, in the name of Jesus (Matthew 6:23).
3. Word of God, renew and transform my mind, in the name of Jesus (Romans 12:2).
4. Lord Jesus, give me the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of You through Your word, in the name of Jesus (Ephesians 1 :17).
5. O Lord, sanctify me through Your word, in the name of Jesus (John 17:17).
6. Holy Spirit, come into my life and help me obey God’s word always, in the name of Jesus (Ezekiel 36:27).
7. Word of God, give me a new heart and spirit, in the name of Jesus (Ezekiel 36:26)
