I don’t know the problems you may be facing right now, but I have discovered where you can get the solution to them. It is possible you have gone to places, people, and did everything you were asked to do;; yet the problem remains unsolved.
Today, if only you would accept what I am going to share with you, as simple as it may appear to be; it works powerfully. I have tried it and it worked for me, and I have heard several testimonies of those who tried it and it worked for them.
Do you know my discovery? It is the word of God; it works powerfully. I am certain, as a Christian, you are reading it, and you might think that what I am saying is no news. You know what; I realized that most times we treat God’s word as information that he wants us to know. Yes, it is, but it is beyond that.
Does that interest you? Perhaps you are thinking there is nothing new about God’s word that you have not heard. I also thought so, but my thinking changed when I approached it with a purpose as I was taught by other preachers of the word. I found it very helpful that is why I am eager to share it with you.
I have discovered that many of us are struggling with issues that normally wouldn’t have been a challenge to us at all if we knew how to use God’s word properly. But we are like Na’aman in the Bible when Elisha asked him to go and dip himself seven times and be cured of leprosy;, he said,
“Behold, I thought that he would surely come to me and stand and call upon the name of the Lord his God, and wave his hand over the place and cure the leper”. 2 Kings 5:11
And he mentioned better rivers he knew in his country which he could have washed in them than River Jordan.
In the same way, we think our problems are huge that they require dramatic approach. This is why I want to share with you about what I have discovered in the word of God that is so helpful.
Now if only you would exercise patience and go through these verses of the Bible meditatively, you would give it a different approach.
The absolute integrity of the Bible, the word of God
“And we have the word of the prophets made more certain, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts. Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet’s own interpretation. For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit”.
2 Peter 1:19-21
Faith comes by hearing
“So then faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God”.
The word of God is powerful
“For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword,
piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow,
and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart”.
“Is not My word like a fire?” says the Lord,
“And like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces”?
“I write to you, young men,
because you are strong,
and the word of God lives in you,
and you have overcome the evil one”
1 John 2:14
“who, being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person,
and upholding all things by the word of His power,
when He had by Himself purged our sins,
sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high”
“For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing,
but to us who are being saved, it is the power of God”.
1 Cor 1:18
“And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit,
which is the word of God”.
“Every word of God is pure;
He is a shield to those who put their trust in Him”.
The word of God is truth.
Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth.
The entirety of Your word is truth,
And every one of Your righteous judgments endures forever.
As for God, his way is perfect;
the word of the Lord is flawless.
For the word of the Lord is right,
And all His work is done in truth.
The words of the Lord are pure words,
Like silver tried in a furnace of earth,
Purified seven times.
The word of God gives life
“The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing.
The words I have spoken to you are spirit and they are life”.
” But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone,
but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God”
as newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby.
1 Peter 2:2
“Therefore lay aside all filthiness and overflow of wickedness,
and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls”.
“He taught me and said,
“Lay hold of my words with all your heart;
keep my commands and you will live.
The word of God heals and delivers
“He sent his word and healed them, and delivered them from their destruction”.
“My son, give attention to my words;
Incline your ear to my sayings.
21 Do not let them depart from your eyes;
Keep them in the midst of your heart;
22 For they are life to those who find them,
And health to all their flesh”
The word of God brings prosperity
“This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth,
but you shall meditate in it day and night,
that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it.
For then you will make your way prosperous,
and then you will have good success”.
When your words came, I ate them;
they were my joy and my heart’s delight
The word of God keeps us from sin
Your word I have hidden in my heart,
That I might not sin against You.
“You are already clean because of the word
which I have spoken to you”.
The word of God is light
The entrance of Your words gives light;
It gives understanding to the simple
Your word is a lamp to my feet
And a light to my path.
The word of God endures forever
“Heaven and earth will pass away,
but My words will by no means pass away”.
the grass withers, the flower fades,
But the word of our God stands forever.
the entirety of Your word is truth,
And every one of Your righteous judgments endures forever.
“Having been born again not of corruptible seed
but incorruptible through the word of God which lives
and endures forever”.
The word of God accomplishes his will
Your word O’ Lord is eternal, it stands firm in the heavens.
So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth;
It shall not return to Me void,
But it shall accomplish what I please,
And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
“By faith, we understand that the worlds were
framed by the word of God”.
I hope you found it helpful.
