1 Thessalonians 2:13 (KJV); For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.
The Word of God when ministered works effectively in a man who receives it as His Word and not that of mere men.
From the beginning of time and for the foreseeable future, God will continue to speak through men and women. He will deliver oracles designed to change your life and destiny through earthen vessels.
If you choose to only regard the earthiness of the vessel and despise the words he or she speaks, you will always lose out on God’s message for your life.
Some people have missed key moments in their seasons and times because when the Word was spoken, they assumed it was only the minister expressing a point of view.
The message version of our theme scripture expresses this sentiment when it says, “When you got the Message of God we preached, you didn’t pass it off as just one more human opinion, but you took it to heart as God’s true word to you…”
This wisdom shall grow you, child of God! Learn to give divine oracles the due reverence they deserve because they are from the throne of God to the hearts of men.

PRAYER: My Father, I thank You for the many things You have freely given me. Today, I thank You for those that minister the Word to me, those You have ordained with great wisdom for my sake. I recognise Your voice on the lips of any man or woman, and through this, I always find direction, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
