Romans 10:17 KJVA
“So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”
If I want to write the above passage in the negative perspective, I will put it as “So then fear cometh by not hearing and not hearing the word of God.” The rise in fear in most people’s life can be correlated to the lack of the word of God. The Greek word that was translated to “hearing” in this bible passage is “akoe” and it means “forms of word”.
All living things respond to words. The words you hear determines the world you create around yourself. I have come to realize that the lack of God’s word in my life makes me do things against the will of God. It also lead to the fear of the unknown.
As a Christian, your life and existence is dependent on the word of God. The scripture says “In Him we live, move and have our being”. Nowadays, it is easier to neglect the word of God or exchange it for other quotes and motivational words. Quotes are good and motivational words are profitable, but the word of God is life. Make it part of your daily life to hear the God’s word from time to time.
