Treasure God’s Word (1)

‘I have treasured the words of His mouth more than my daily bread.’ Job 23:12 NIV

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, ‘I commend you to God and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up.’ (Acts 20:32 NASB) God’s Word is like seed; it’s filled with potential. Jesus said, ‘The words that I have spoken to you are life.’ (John 6:63 NASB) 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 fulfil your life’s purpose. The Bible is described as milk, bread, solid food, and sweet dessert (see 1 Peter 2:2; Matthew 4:4; 1 Corinthians 3:2; Psalm 119:103). This four-course meal is the Spirit’s 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.

SoulFood: Ezek 40:10–42:20, Lk 1:26–38, Ps 73:17–28, Prov 15:22–24

… we've got a favour to ask!

For 365 days of the year we're able to provide these great devotions, thanks to a very small portion of readers that donate to the costs.

Today we’re asking for your help. Your gift, large or small, will make a big difference in many lives—and, in addition, it’s tax-deductible (in Australia) as well.
