TREASURE GOD’S WORD (1)                                      Job 23:

I have not departed from the commandment of his lips; I have treasured in my bosom the words of his mouth. (v12)

The Spirit of God makes us like the Son of God, through the Word of God. That’s why satan will put 101 roadblocks in your way to keep you from reading the Bible. Paul writes, “(God’s) … Word can make you into what he wants you to be and give you everything you could possibly need.’ (Acts 2:32TM). Underscore that word “everything” God’s Word is like seed, it’s filled with potential, Jesus said; “The words I have spoken to you… are life” (John 6:63 NAS) An amazing thing happens when you study the Scriptures. Your mind illuminates, your heart resonates, and the truth comes to life in you. The Bible is more than just a doctrinal guidebook. It creates faith, produces change, causes miracles, heals hurts, builds character, transforms circumstances, imparts joy, overcomes adversity, defeats temptation, builds hope, releases power, cleanses minds, brings things into being and guarantees your future. You can’t survive without it. It’s as essential to your life as food. That’s why Job said, “I have treasured the words of his mouth more than my daily bread.” God’s Word is the spiritual nourishment you need to fulfill your life’s purpose. The Bible is described as milk, bread, solid food, and sweet desert (1 Peter 2:2, Matthew 4:4, 1 Corinthians 3:2; Psalm 119:103) This four-course meal is the Spirits menu for daily strength, and growth. Peter writes, “Crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up” (1 Peter 2:2 NIV) So make a commitment to spend time each day reading God’s Word (TWFT)

PRAYER LINE: Once early joy I craved, sought peace and rest; This all my prayer shall be: More love, O Christ, to Thee – (TWFT)
