After speaking at my Bible college graduation banquet, Dr. Lester Sumrall did an unusual thing. He auctioned off his notes to raise money for the next year of Bible college. The graduate who was the highest bidder was on his way back to his table when he turned and said, "Hey, this is a blank sheet of paper." Brother Sumrall replied, “You just paid $100.00 for a valuable lesson! When you are speaking to your congregation, deliver what is on your heart, not what is on a piece of paper!” A great applause was followed by the benediction.
Father, in the name of Jesus, I commit myself to walk in the Word. Your Word living in me produces Your life in this world. I recognize that Your Word is steadfast, sure, and eternal, and I trust my life to its provisions.
You have sent your Word and it lives in my heart, making me rich in all true wisdom. I meditate in it day and night so that I may diligently act on it. The Incorruptible Seed, the Living Word, the Word of Truth, is abiding in my spirit. That Seed is growing mightily in me now, producing Your nature and Your life in me. Amen.
