“Then said they unto him, Say now Shibboleth: and he said Sibboleth: for he could not frame to pronounce it right. Then they took him, and slew him at the passage of Jordan; and there fell at that time of the Ephraimites forty and two thousand (42’000)” [Judges 12:6].

There are times that a Christian’s life crumbles in the midst of dire circumstances; and that Christians seemingly are slaughtered by the words of unbelievers. Many Christians has withered away by diverse persecutions, because they did not frame their world with the Word of God. Many young Christians today and newly born into the faith Christians stumble and fall, some being tossed to and fro, because they have not learned yet how to frame their world. The Bible in the book of Psalms 50 and verse 19 tells us; “Thou givest thy mouth to evil, and they tongue frameth deceit.” And also in Psalms 94 and verse 20, which reads; “Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law?” Many who has been called unto greatness has fallen, because they have looked unto the perverseness which dwells among others.
As Christians, we ought to be careful ‘…not to be conformed to this world, but be transformed [transfigured] by the renewing of our minds, that we may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God’ [Romans 12:2]. We are responsible for our own salvation, but the Bible says; How will they hear if no one tells them, how will they know if no one teach them [Romans 10:14]. The prophet Isaiah illustrates this perfectly by saying: ‘Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter’s clay: for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not? Or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding?’ [Isaiah 29:16].
Many come into Christ, but in the same manner Lot’s wife who looked back and were turned into a pillar of salt [Genesis 19:26], so to many today clean unto what they assumed to be a life of fun and freedom. They know what they ought to do, but do it not [James 4:17]; still holding fast to a sinful nature, because they see Christianity to be a life of religious by laws, which restrict the believer to indulge in fun. They see Christianity as dull and boring, yet they know that it is the right path to follow. Understand this today; Christianity is not a religion, it is an outward expression of the most inner workings of God. Yes, you might have had fun when you were part of the world, but it is because you have had no understanding on the transcending peace found in Christ; which by far exceeds the temporary joys of your old life.
I find many Christians, young and old, new to the faith and those who are born again for many years, living miserable lives. They fail to understand that they are turning their own lives upside down, and their works are ashamed to esteem them as the potter who framed it. You are a product of the words which comes out of your own mouth. Many will question God about their own lives, and even blame others for the results their own lives are bearing, to the extent of even blaming God. God had framed the entire world in six days, and took rest of the seventh day. Jesus has framed Christianity and the new creation through His ministry and unto the cross; and on the cross said: ‘It is finished’ [John 19:30] – He is done! The Word was made flesh and dwelled among men [John 1:14], and the same Word was send unto them that believe [Acts 2:2-4], to abide with them [Matthew 28:19-20], to multiply them [Acts 2:37-41], to bring them into an inheritance [Acts 20:32], to be like Him [1 John 4:17], and to be more than conquerors [Romans 8:37].
God’s work is done; and on the completion of it, God had blessed us with all spiritual blessing [Ephesians 1:3]. There is no promise God needs to fulfill, all the promises of God has been fulfilled in Christ Jesus, and you are the heir of those promises. See it for yourself in Galatians 3:18; ‘For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise; but God gave it to Abraham by promise‘ – you are a product of the covenant promise God made with Abraham, and Jesus came to fulfill that [also see Galatians 3:22 & 29].
Moreso; God has given us His Word – and God has said it, so that we may boldly say it [Hebrews 13:5-6]. Let me show it to you; “…for He hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.  So that we may boldly say…” God’s Word has been given to you, it has been framed for you to use; God has said it about you, so that you can boldly say it too, to frame your world by it.
It is vital that every Christian learn to mix their faith well with the Word of God, for it will produce that which the Word of God speaks. Hebrews 11:3 tells us; “Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the Word of God, so that things which are seen were made of things which do appear.” Just as God had framed the world by faith, so to can you now
frame your world by the same Word God gave you. You might ask; ‘Is it really that simple?’ Yes, it is! However, you must make the effort to study the Word of God if you want to see the product thereof, because the Word not only tells us what has been given to us, but also tells us how to take possession thereof. Be assure of this by Joshua 1:8; “This book of the law shall not depart of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.” Look at the promise here which has been given to you – If you are only to study the Word diligently daily, and do according to what it says… when you do this, then YOU WILL make your way prosperous, and YOU WILL have good success. It is dependant on you to frame your world with the Word of God. You are responsible to influence your world, your life, you job, your education, your finances, your health, your future, your circumstances, etc…
Furthermore, God gives us a direct commandment in verse 9, saying: ‘Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of good courage, be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed…’ and also the assurance that, ‘…the Lord thy God is with thee withersoever thou goest.’
In closing, I want to leave you with this portion in scripture; “Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;  And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;  In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:  In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit” [Ephesians 2:19-22]. This is just amazing to me, every time I read this; I think of what an honor it is that God Himself takes so much of pleasure in His children.
Learn to use your words, but moreso, the Word God gave you, to frame your world to produce the desired results. You can uphold all things by the Word of God’s power [Hebrews 1:3-4].
