Let’s look at how THE BIBLE expresses the feelings of its writers for the WORD of God.
“Your words were found, and I ate them; and YOUR WORDS WERE TO ME A JOY AND THE REJOICING OF MY HEART, for I am called by Your name, O Lord God of hosts.“ (Jer. 15:16)
Let’s see what our Abba Father says about His WORD:
“For as the rain and snow come down from the heavens, and return not there again, but water the earth and make it bring forth and sprout, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, So shall MY WORD be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return to Me void, but IT SHALL ACCOMPLISH THAT WHICH I PLEASE AND PURPOSE, and IT SHALL PROSPER IN THE THING FOR WHICH I SENT IT.“ (Isa. 55:10-11)
So, how long will this WORD be around?
“YOUR WORD, LORD, IS ETERNAL; it stands firm in the heavens.“ (Psa. 119:89)
What will the WORD of God do for me?
“Your word is a LAMP for my feet, a LIGHT on my path.“ (Psa. 119:105)
How will the word of God affect me?
“…Your word is in my heart LIKE A FIRE…SHUT UP IN MY BONES…” (Jer. 20:9)
Tell me more…
“… YOUR WORD IS TRUTH.” (John 17:17)
How do I find this truth?
“…when he, THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH, COMES, HE WILL GUIDE YOU INTO ALL THE TRUTH. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.” (John 16:13)
We are so very blessed to have the Spirit of Truth, who is the Holy Spirit to reveal God’s living WORD to us, the most important WORD for our lives?
“For the Word that God speaks IS ALIVE AND FULL OF POWER making it active, operative, energizing, and effective; it is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life (soul) and [the immortal] spirit, and of joints and marrow [of the deepest parts of our nature], EXPOSING AND SIFTING AND ANALYZING AND JUDGING THE VERY THOUGHTS AND PURPOSES OF THE HEART.” (Heb. 4:12)
What if we are just a young person?
“How can a young person stay on the path of purity? BY LIVING ACCORDING TO YOUR WORD. I SEEK YOU WITH ALL MY HEART; DO NOT LET ME STRAY from your commands.” (Psa. 119:9-10)
It is God’s word, alive and active in us, that gives us power to stay enlightened – BUT IT MUST BE READ DAILY! Because, we are tempted EVERYDAY by the enemy of our soul!
THE WORD OF GOD IS ALIVE AND FULL OF POWER!
