Putting God’s Word Into Practice

by | Jul 10, 2023 | Vital Life Application Devotions

Philippians 4:9 The things which you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things [in daily life], and the God [who is the source] of peace and well-being will be with you.


This verse carries on from v.8. which talks about thinking on things that are pure, lovely, kind, wholesome, worthy of praise etc…. We are not only to think on these things, but to practice them in daily life. Everything that we have learned of Christ, everything we read in God’s Word and have heard preached from God’s Word, we need to apply it to our daily living. Even if it’s just one word or phrase that has spoken to us, we need to set our hearts and minds on it and bring it into our everyday lives, so that it becomes our new normal. This is how we ‘transform’.

Romans 12:2 tells us to “…be transformed by the renewing of our minds…”, but how do we “renew our minds”? We renew our minds by meditating on God’s Word—allowing His Word to ‘soak’ us. It’s by aligning our thinking and beliefs to His Word—then living it out in our everyday lives. No change can happen if we don’t put into practice the truths God shows us in His Word

We need to be ‘doers’ of the Word, not just ‘hearers’, and as a result of this, God will cover us with His peace. We will live in His peace and walk in His presence. Remember, He is there beside you helping you put into practice what you have learned, received, heard and seen in Him.
