I was asked to identify how I maintain my youthful composure, I stated I use God’s word as a skill and received varied questions and thoughts of what I meant about my answer. I referred to Psalm 91:15,16.
This article will reveal how the use of God’s word affects us and how I use the word as a skill to keep myself looking as though I am in my mid-fifties even though I have just turned seventy-six and am healthy, agile, and mentally alert. Acts2:28
I am going to reveal in this article how the word stress becomes the greatest thief in your life. I will show how Stress slowly steals your physical appearance and effective use of God’s word as a Skill. Matt 12:34
“However,” remember God’s word is an effective skill within your life to remain free, agile, thoughtful, aspiring, developing and most of all thankful for the ability to enjoy what you are doing and living. 1Corinthians 2:14
For those who are wondering how I see God’s word as just a word in my life. “AGE is the experiences life has provided, AGE is a skillful tool to identify the events in your life whether a good or unpleasant experience, I draw from those experiences to show me how to deal with the many twists and turns presented by Satan daily. Satan just reconfigures an evil and places it before you in many new forms but still the same evil. James 1;2; 2Peter2:9
I work with God’s word to keep my life free, agile, thoughtful, aspiring, developing and most of all thankful I am doing what I enjoy; providing life’s enhancements so others can go through their life’s journey being free, agile, thoughtful, aspiring, developing and most of all thankful for what they are doing and enjoying. Believe me it is possible. Colossians 3:15
Life is experience gained through the time we spend searching for answers to the many complex questions presented as hurtles to conquer as we journey forward through our life (remember using God’s word is a skill, but a word available to enhance your life). Matt. 6:12,14.
Many will miss what God’s word and skills have to offer, because they choose to be busy enjoying the various distractions presented as fun and adventure, which by the time they realize what they have missed, “it’s too late”. Matt 24:38
“Life waits for no one” it advances whether you’re consciously aware of what it is offering or not, if you’re distracted by temptations it passes you by and you will be left with the memories of the distractions but absolutely nothing else. Luke 13:25
Using God’s word as a skill is a journey filled with many choices, some lead to success some to dead ends and most to answers which develop our skills, whichever word presents itself, each answer brings forward more understanding, knowledge, and heavenly wisdom. Luke 21:15
God’s word is what you believe it to be. In whatever decade you’re passing through life’s journey look for the time in that decade, which was the most productive and pleasurable for you; capture those thoughts and each day from that moment forward live those experiences as a testimony to the power of God’s word and the development of your skills resulting from them. 1Corinthians 1:30
After each decade use this formula to capture that time in the decade just passed to refresh your thought process or if the previous thoughts still provide the most satisfying position in life, keep those as your thought process moving forward in health and mental state. 1Corinthians 2:4
I am just entering into my 7th decade, I still use those thoughts which I held in my fourth decade, but am continually growing in knowledge and experience and never relinquish the learning process and mentally set the aging process aside by using my God given skills; however that said recognize and acknowledge, I can’t stop or prevent aging but I can claim God’s promise of a long life by using the wisdom garnered through His word. 1Corinthians 2:7
Nonetheless, mentally remaining in those thoughts which are the most satisfying and rewarding in my personal journey. “Caution”, do not use your memory as that is dwelling in the past which is not healthy; use God’s word as a skillful teaching instrument recalling all your trials and tribulations which honed your skills stimulated through them. Psalm 111:10; 1Corinthians 2:13
Just so you know there is more to come, but I believe there is quite a bit to absorb here and am signing off at this point, I will continue talking about the skill of using God’s word as I know what it has to offer as I live it and use it throughout my day.
“All the best everyone” I know once you step back and honestly take a look where you’re at in life’s journey, I believe you will find your way out of the box you have trapped yourself in, by first shedding stress from your life’s journey which is stealing your ability to use Gods word as a skill. Proverbs 3:13; Prov. 11:2
Remember these thoughts are just the words of a humble servant of God walking as a Wtchman for what they are worth.
Spiritual strength and courage are needed for our spiritual warfare and suffering. Those who would prove themselves to have true grace must aim at all grace; and put on the whole armour of God, which he prepares and bestows. The Christian armour is made to be worn, and there is no putting off our armour till we have done our warfare, and finished our course. The combat is not against human enemies, nor against our own corrupt nature only; we have to do with an enemy who has a thousand ways of beguiling unstable souls. The devils assault us in the things that belong to our souls, and labour to deface the heavenly image in our hearts. We must resolve by God’s grace, not to yield to Satan. Resist him, and he will flee. If we give way, he will gain ground. If we distrust either our cause, or our Leader, or our armour, we give him an advantage.
