God's Word works, it 'continues to work in you who believe.' So don't read it and then go out and say something different; get into agreement with God. The Amplified Bible says, '...The Word of God, which is effectually at work in you who believe [exercising its superhuman power in those who adhere to and trust in and rely on it].' (1 Thessalonians 2:13 AMP).
One day an atheist said to a believer that it was quite impossible to believe in any book whose author was unknown. The believer asked him if the compiler of the multiplication table was known. 'No,' he answered. 'Then, of course, you don't accept it?' the believer asked. The skeptic replied, 'Oh, yes, I believe in it because it works well.' The believer replied, 'So does the Bible.'
The greatest investment you can make in yourself is reading your Bible.
1 Thessalonians 2:13 NLT
...You received His message... And this word continues to work in you who believe.
