Summary: a powerful insight to how the word of God brings healing
20My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. 21Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. 22For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh. 23Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.
The word of God, the bible says, is life unto those that find them, and health to all of their flesh.
Job said, I have esteemed your words more than my necessary food.
David wrote, thy word o Lord, is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my pathway.
Peter said, the flower may fade, and the grass shall wither, but the word of the Lord shall stand forever.
Here Solomon said, that the words of God are life, and health. Or literally, that the words of God bring healing to your body, and give you eternal life.
It was with a word, that God spoke the entire creation into existence. And God said, let their be light. And God said let their be a firmament. God said let the waters be gathered together. And God said, let the earth bring forth grass. And God said let the waters bring forth abundantly. And God said let us make man in our image, after our likeness, and let them have dominion over all the earth, and all that dwells within.
Its in his word. And God said.
My son, attend to my words, incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes, and keep them in the midst of your heart.
God told Joshua-This book of the law shall not depart out of your mouth, but you shall meditate therein day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written therin. For then shall thou make your way prosperous, for then shall you have good success.
You may find a way to have temporary success in this earth, but the only way that we will ever have what the bible considers to be good success, is when we observe to do all that is written within the covers of his word.
2 Tim. 2:15 Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
Its in studying the word of God that we show ourselves approved unto God. It is not our head knowledge of Gods word that shows us approved, but the faith that we gain in studying his word.
It is faith that pleases God. Not our degrees, not our diplomas, nor our suits, but it is faith that pleases God. And the bible says that Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Faith does not come from anywhere other than the uncompromising, unadulterated, all powerful, all sufficient, ever living word of God.
Paul told Timothy to study, so that he would not miss out on the blessings that are available unto him. He said, I want you to know Gods word, so that you will know what it is that is available to you.
We have to know our rights, and the promises that God made to us.
The bible declares that God has put his name above all things, and his word above his name.
It also tells us that God is not a man that he should lie, nor the son of man that he should repent. Gods word is true, from the beginning to the end.
