put the Word 1st

And we also thank God continually for this, that when you received the word of God [concerning salvation] which you heard from us, you welcomed it not as the word of [mere] men, but as it truly is, the word of God, which is effectually at work in you who believe [exercising its inherent, supernatural power in those of faith].

1 Thessalonians 2:13 Amplified Bible (AMP)
God’s Word will work effectually IN you

1. BELIEVE 💗 You can never please God without faith, without depending on him. Anyone who wants to come to God must believe that there is a God and that he rewards those who sincerely look for him. _Hebrews 11:6 (TLB)

Whoever is a believer in Christ is a new creation. The old way of living has disappeared. A new way of living has come into existence. _2 Corinthians 5:17

“For God so [greatly] loved and dearly prized the world, that He [even] gave His [One and] only begotten Son, so that whoever believes and trusts in Him [as Savior] shall not perish, but have eternal life. _John 3:16 (AMP)

2. GIVE THE WORD FIRST PLACE 💗 And if God cares so wonderfully for flowers that are here today and gone tomorrow, won’t he more surely care for you, O men of little faith? “So don’t worry at all about having enough food and clothing. Why be like the heathen? For they take pride in all these things and are deeply concerned about them. But your heavenly Father already knows perfectly well that you need them, and he will give them to you if you give him first place in your life and live as he wants you to. _Matthew 6:30-33 (TLB)

All Scripture is God-breathed [given by divine inspiration] and is profitable for instruction, for conviction [of sin], for correction [of error and restoration to obedience], for training in righteousness [learning to live in conformity to God’s will, both publicly and privately—behaving honorably with personal integrity and moral courage]; _2 Timothy 3:16 (AMP)

3. RENEW YOUR MIND 💗 Do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may prove what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. _Romans 12:2 Revised Standard Version (RSV)

For who has known the mind and purposes of the Lord, so as to instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ [to be guided by His thoughts and purposes]._1 Corinthians 2:16 (AMP)
