God’s Word Is Life and Health To Us
By Rusty Wilson
For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.
It’s important for everyone to read and study the Word of God. As we read His Word, it’s important to remember that we aren’t just reading just any other book to just put on the shelf after we read a few pages.
As we read and study God’s Word, it’s extremely important to always understand and know that we are reading a Living Word that God has given to us to read every day and apply it to our life. That the words in His Word have life in them and as we dig into the scriptures that speak about life (Deuteronomy 30:19; Proverbs 18:21) and understand them and speak them, we will have a strong life.
As we read the Word to find the scriptures that speak about life and health, we find (attain, get a hold on or take hold on) the Words spoken to us, we are receiving life, causing our life to be stronger and live a long life that glorifies God.
We receive health (Hebrew: medicine) as we read and receive the healing scriptures and scriptures on health for example Isaiah 53:5, …with his stripes we are healed, 1 Peter 2:24, by whose stripes ye were healed. Proverbs 16:24, …sweet to the soul, and health to the bones., Jeremiah 30:17, For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds,… just to name some healing and health scriptures.
Let’s be encouraged as we read and study the Word of God, to understand that we are reading and receiving words of life and health and be thankful and give God praise for giving us His Word to live by and apply daily.
