Today we have come to worship God, and listen as His word is expounded and made clearer to us. I love the word of God, I don’t know how I could do life without it. I love to read it, it is food to our beings. It brings healing to our spirits, souls and bodies as we read and meditate on it. It is truth, it is God’s word and He never lies.
It brings strength when we are feeling weak, peace when we are afraid, joy in place of sadness. It is a light to our souls when all around is darkness. The reading of God’s word increases our faith. Romans 10:17 says “Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.” If we don’t read the word, then our faith doesn’t reach its full potential.
One of my favourite verses is Hebrews 4:12 which says, “The word of God is alive and active, sharper than a two edged sword.” As we speak out God’s word, miracles take place. I have seen miracles take place in my life and the lives of my family as I have declared God’s word over a situation. When I have needed to change from within, God has brought that change as I have meditated on His word. God’s word brings life. As I have prayed for clients who have come for food parcels, and read a verse or two from the Bible, I have seen God touch them through the power of His word.
So I would encourage you to read God’s word often, meditate on it, feed on it, and you will see the miraculous in your life. Enjoy life as you feast on His word.
