The Power of God’s Word

The Word of God is not simply scribbles on a page or ideas in a book. The Word of God is full of life and supplies the “nutrients” you need to make it through each day.

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. (2 Timothy 3:16–17)

I remember the day I made a quality decision to read my Bible every day. The Lord spoke to me and said, “The place that I will speak to you from is this Book.” I knew if I was going to hear God, I needed to be in the Word.

The same is true for you too. If you want to develop spiritually, you are going to have to place a high priority on reading and studying the Word.Continue reading
