“The assurance we can have on the word of God, is to find the word, when they are found, they become what the word says they are when practiced”
When we find God’s word we must stay on it and also learn to rejoice at it. Finding God’s word is not just to open the scriptures, it is to get the scriptures that address a certain situation. There is no essence of finding a thing you don’t need, you only look for what you need. We understand that what we need to find is God’s word
Proverbs 4:20 My son, attend to MY WORDS; incline thine ear unto my sayings.
4:21 Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.
4:22 For THEY(THE WORD) ARE LIFE UNTO THOSE THAT FIND THEM, AND HEALTH TO ALL THEIR FLESH.
“The place by which the word we find must stay is the heart, when the word is in the heart, like the heart bumps blood to the necessary parts, it will bump the word to the necessary place”
The word of God says to attend to the word, to give attention to the word because the WORD is life to those that FIND IT, and HEALTH to all their flesh. The word translated “health” means “medicine” meaning God’s word is a medicine. Some folks just take some medicine daily not because they are ill but to keep their body fit, now God’s word is a medicine to all our flesh! Gloria Copeland said something very important
“I have learned since to go to the Word at the first sign of a symptom, I immediately take a dose of God’s medicine!”
Jesus said the word is life
John 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: THE WORDS that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and THEY ARE LIFE.
We see clearly that God’s word is life and we understand also that God’s word is a medicine to all our flesh when they are found. T. S. Osborn said that there was a time himself and his wife went to pray for the sick and what they did throughout was to read the word, they were just reading the word, then the person got healed just by reading the word. I believe that word became a medicine for that body. Jeremiah made us to know that we can find the word of God
Jeremiah 15:16 THY WORDS WERE FOUND, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O LORD God of hosts.
That eating of the word, is the acting on God’s word, because it will yield result even the word becomes a joy and the rejoicing of your heart for your healing!
