"But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her" (Luke 10:42 KJV)


There’re those who get so carried away with their work and other activities that they lose focus of what truly matters—the Word! They get so preoccupied in the many activities that they don’t have time to fellowship, study and meditate on the Word. That’s wrong!

The Word of God is your food for life. 1 Peter 1:23 says, “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth forever.” You were born of the Word and can only be sustained by the Word. 1 Peter 2:2 says, “As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word that ye may grow thereby.”

True and lasting success comes from conscious meditation on the Word of God: “This Book of the Law shall not depart out of your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, that you may observe and do according to all that is written in it. For then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall deal wisely and have good success” (Joshua 1:8 AMPC).

When the Lord Jesus counselled Martha in Luke 10, He was unequivocal in letting her know what to prioritize: the Word! He said, “…Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things: But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her” (Luke 10:41-42).

No wonder the Spirit says to us in Colossians 3:16 AMPC, “Let the word [spoken by] Christ (the Messiah) have its home [in your hearts and minds] and dwell in you in [all its] richness, as you teach and admonish and train one another in all insight and intelligence and wisdom [in spiritual things, and as you sing] psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, making melody to God with [His] grace in your hearts.”

Give attention to the Word and fellowship with the Holy Spirit! Spend quality time in prayer, every day; you’ll experience such peace and prosperity—such blessings and glory in your life that you never thought possible. Hallelujah!


"Dear Father, I’m blessed and transformed to hear and receive your Word today! Even now, your Word stirs faith in me, dispelling worry, doubt and fear; I’m built up by the Word of your grace, walking in my inheritance in Christ. Amen."


Proverbs 4:20-22; Psalm 119:16


Colossians 3:1-4:1 & Isaiah 50-51


Hebrews 3:12-19 & Ezekiel 3
