Growth – the Word is banished until the profit shows.

Growth – the Word is banished until the profit shows.

Meditate upon these things; give yourself wholly to them; that your profiting may appear to all.  (1 Timothy 4:15)

In Profit that shows we showed how by paying attention to the word and its power to produce value in you, there will be profit that will show. Profit is the fruitfulness or productivity that will become evident in your life. What kind of fruitfulness is this? It is fruitfulness in whatever area the word of God is addressing in your life. In the area that God sent His word, it will produce its assignment.

For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, and returns not there, but waters the earth, and makes it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goes forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. (Isaiah 55:10-11)

Remember, the Word of God is on a specific assignment from God and it is not permitted to retire from your life until it is finished. When is it finished? The word is finished when its job is done in your life. In fact, the word of God is banished from God’s presence until it can come back and report success. The only answer that God expects from the word that He speaks about your life is a testimony. The word must get back and say that everything has worked as described.

God has exceptional confidence in what He has said. His word has no capacity to fail because He has guaranteed it with His very own reputation.

I will worship toward your holy temple, and praise your name for your loving-kindness and for your truth: for you have magnified your word above all your name.  (Psalm 138:2)

This is why God has elevated His Word above His name. His name is His reputation and His reputation depends on His ability to fulfill the things He says. God is not going to fail, so when we do not see results, there is no problem on His end of the equation.

The Word of God must fulfill its assignment, the integrity of God guarantees it. I have no choice but to grow.

I must elevate the size of my faith to the size of my God.
