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.
Our Lord has again stressed to me the urgency of the application of His Word, the Holy Bible, in our daily affairs. GOD'S Word is our sword that commands priority status. The Word of GOD is alive and we thoroughly thrive when we think it, speak it, hear it, and DO it. Without its regular application, we wither on the Vine. If we fail to attend...we risk death on the Vine.
Recently I heard a pastor say that for some people the Word got in but it didn't get down, and for some the Word gets down but it doesn't come up.
Today our Lord said to me, "Getting down with the Word and coming up with JESUS."
Bishop T. D. Jakes' message yesterday was titled, "In the Presence of Beasts." One scripture that he used was Mark 1:13 which states about JESUS, "And he was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted of Satan: and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto him."

Jakes said the following in reference to his topic:
- You have to go ahead in the presence of wild beasts.
- Smile in the presence of beasts.
- God will provide for you in the presence of beasts.
Our Lord reminded me that in Matthew 4, JESUS came against Satan's opposition with the Word of GOD. Christ repeatedly said to the devil, "It is written."
Here is a bit of what is written about the Word of our Lord:
For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.
Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it.
But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven: but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.
To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.
