Hello there, thanks for visiting my blog. So, a bit about me; I'm Natalie and I am a Christian, committed to living by God's Word each and every day. I am a proud mother to three beautiful children and creator of The Accidental Mogul - a blog designed to channel my ambitious juices and unleash the writer within! This blog is a reflection of me, so it contains a little bit of everything. I’ll be documenting my walk with my saviour Jesus Christ, as well as my natural hair journey, I'll be writing thought provoking posts, product reviews, hosting giveaway's and of course offering up a generous dollop of everyday mummy musings. I like to hear uplifting and motivational stories, so I’ll be interviewing inspirational people when I can to encourage and inspire others. Sharing experiences is what makes life beautiful, so let's share.

The 'MGW' Assignment - week 2

Hello lovely readers, it's week two of the Memorising God's Word (MGW) assignment, and I must say I'm still bubbling with excitement about this project. I pray most of you were able to meditate on last weeks verse Hosea 4:6 and memorise it. I've said this already but I have to say it again; GOD'S WORD IS SO POWERFUL.

To hit this point home this week's memory verse is Hebrews 4:12

'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.'

Yes it's another lengthy one guys, but seriously if you can memorise this verse and lay it on your heart it will truly bring power to your life. This is one of the first scriptures I learnt by heart when I got saved but I need to polish up on it, so I'll be using this week to do just that. A few days ago I was listening to a Dr Micheal Youssef sermon on Premier Christian Radio. He is a truly awesome man of God who God uses mightily to preach His word. One of his sermons last week actually centred on Hebrews 4:12, so I thought I'd share my notes with you all. It's powerful....

The word of God doesn't miss a thing. Like a two edge sword it cuts deeply into every single cell of our spiritual body. That is why the devil and the flesh do not want you to be in God's word for long.

The word of God judges your thoughts and your motives. We live in a culture where everyone tries to be non-judgemental, but the word of God judges your heart and your secret intentions.

The world tells you to do 'what you feel is right' but this is completely unreliable. Feelings change minute, by minute, day by day and from person to person. God's word, like He Himself NEVER changes and His divine truth reveals to you what is wrong and what is right. It reveals what is of Him, what is of your flesh (you) and what is of the enemy (Satan).

The Bible tells you when you are not glorifying God. Human beings are experts in delusion and deception, we all try to hide our true self from our public self, always trying to explain away why we do what we do. The word of God penetrates through the clutter and sorts what is real and what is false.

What we can not do for ourselves the word of God does it. Where the word of God cuts it also heals. Anyone can cut. It's the sowing together, the restoration that matters. God is a restorer. Where He cuts, He will ALWAYS heal.

It's human nature to try and run away from the person who knows the most about you. Through the word of God we can be healed, strengthened, blessed, restored, enriched and reconciled with Him.

When we let the word of God reign in our lives, we let God reign in our life.

Ooowee. Such a powerful message. So this week meditate on Hebrews 4:12. Read it when you wake up, before you go to bed and throughout the day if possible. This is all in addition to the time you spend with God in prayer and reading the Bible. The aim is to internalise God's word and impress it onto our hearts, so we are able to speak life into our own lives and the lives of others correctly and consistently.

If you are taking part in the assignment please comment in the comment box below, so I know who you are and we can build a community for fellowship and encouragement. You can follow me on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest too. Just use the hashtags #MGW #MGWA.

I'm praying for you all. Have a blessed week.
