God saved us and left us on Earth for a reason. we could have just been saved and taken to heaven immediately, but that was not His plan. He decided to give us salvation and then left us on earth so we could live the higher life, a life that was designed in His plan. The foundation for living the higher life is through His Word. The basis of everything in life is the word of God. For you to begin to understand what God has planned for you; like he said in Jeremiah 29:11-I alone know the plans I have for you, plans to bring you prosperity and not disaster, plans to bring about the future you hope for (GNB), is by studying His word and coming to the full knowledge of it.
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him, and without him was not anything made that was made.” John 1:1-3. The foundation for living the life in Christ is the Word of God for everything found in the world was created through words. God spoke the words and creation came into being. The word has always been there and God compels us to study this word and live by it. in Joshua 1:8, he said; This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. God is demonstrating how a Christian can live a higher life through the Word of God. Having Good success- which is the God-Kind of Success means you prosper in everything as He said in 3 John 1:2; Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. That means you will prosper spiritually, materially and your health will always be excellent.
Living the higher life through the word of God enables you to stand out in everything you do, the Bible says God’s word is a mirror which reflects you, so when you study the word, as you look, you become what you see in that word. His word serves as a guidance, it provides a new revelation of who He is to you and who you are to him. The word of God directs your path and actions in life, causing you to make the right decisions and to live a life higher and better than what the world has for you.
The Psalmist was very clear when he said; Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept Thy word (Psalm 119:67). That means for you to live the kind of life that God wants you, you have to keep His word and the moment you step out of it, afflictions will begin to come it. Stepping out of God’s word is actually you stepping into the devil’s plan. Psalm 1 also clearly says who the Blessed Man is
Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and in his law doth he meditates day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither, and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish. (Psalm 1:1-6)
If you so desire to live the higher life (which you should), start out today, study the word, and as you study, His revelations will come on to you, His Word is Wisdom and Christ has been made on to us Wisdom, this will give you that revelation knowledge to always prosper and stand out in whatever you are living. It’s time to live The Higher Life
