Over 25 years ago, the Lord spoke to my husband about the vision of this ministry. The Lord told him to “build people’s faith and frame their world by the Word of God” based on Hebrews 11:3, which says, “Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.”
The word framed means “to complete thoroughly, to arrange, to put in order.” When I came to know Jesus as Lord, my life was out of order! Over the years, the Lord has taught me how to use His Word to put those areas in line with His plan and purpose. If you have chaos in your home, the Word of God can restore peace. If you have sickness in your body, you can apply the Word of God by faith and put your health in order. Lack is a sign that the finances need to be arranged and put in God’s order of the blessing.
The New Testament: An Expanded Translation by Kenneth Wuest says, “equipped and fitted by God’s Word for the purpose for which they were intended.” The Word of God is the main ingredient for the purpose of God. Without His Word, we will not be equipped to live the life God has designed.
When I began to attend church as a new believer, I was VERY aware that my life was NOTHING like the abundant, stable, good life promised in the Bible. I read about the peace of God, the blessing of the Lord, and the victory that overcomes the world. But as I began to renew my mind, feed on the Scriptures, and become a doer of the Word of God, my life transformed! God’s Word established a structure—a framework of faith!
God’s Word is supernatural. It transmits the creative power of God. The Word is seed, water, and light. When it is sown into the heart, a harvest is produced. The Word of God pertaining to redemption will produce a harvest of eternal life. The seed of God’s Word that speaks of our healing will provide faith to receive healing. God’s Word produces what it promises.
This is why we store up the Word like a treasure in our hearts.
Matthew 12:35 says, “A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things….”
Psalm 119:11 (MSG) says, “I’ve banked your promises in the vault of my heart….”
Proverbs 4:23 (AMPC) says, “Keep and guard your heart with all vigilance and above all that you guard, for out of it flow the springs of life.”
Begin to consider that God’s Word is a valuable treasure. If you knew there was a treasure chest with $50,000 dollars buried in your backyard, you would dig until you found it. When you located it, you wouldn’t leave it in the yard. You would bring it in and store it safely under lock and key. Dig into the Word like you are mining for treasure! Search the Scriptures and store the revelations in your heart.
