We need understanding of the Truth to rule and be triumphant in life. Living in errors is what brings horrors and darkness. The Bible is the Truth concerning every issues of life. What the Bible says is the final.
To dwell a little bit on this word “Truth”, you can only do something for the truth and not against the truth. It’s a foolish dream going against a force you know you cannot overcome. The truth had been in existence before the time began and shall abide forever.
So, to be candid, you that will live for at most 120 years are now warring against the truth and you want to win? The foundation of all disciplines and principles are built and based on the truth because it abides forever.
There is no sophisticated truth, no new age truth. That the World is now technologically advanced don’t makes one plus one to be eleven. 1+1 will be equals to 2 any day any time; that is the truth.
What then can the Bible do for you as a man?
The Bible can also be refers to as the knowledge of the Truth. Jesus came into the World and He said “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life”. Everything written in the Bible from Genesis to Revelation is about Christ and to reveal Christ in you and me.
The Word of God directs our paths in the Journey of Life: The heart is desperate to do wicked things. Even though the mind was created to function at a very powerful rate, the unregenerate mind prefers to relax and just do things anyhow it pleases. God wants us to follow his leading and trust in His Word.
The book of Jeremiah 17 verses 5 painted this eternal truth;
“Thus says the LORD: “Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his strength whose heart departs from the LORD”
The Bible can point us in the way that we should go. With the teachings and instructions of the Bible, we can know what is required of us and how to live our lives. If we know truth in God through His Word, our heart will desist from doing wickedly and begins to do righteousness. The Word will change our heart and nourish it with goodness.
For example, the above scripture holds truth at any point in time. If a man is not looking up unto Jesus as the author and finisher of his faith, the Bible says cursed is that man. To leave the cursed land and dwell in the Country of the Blessed, you need the Bible to direct your paths in the journey of life.
The longest poetic book of the Bible “Psalms” chapter 119 verses 105 says
“Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path”
In this dark and wicked world, you need the light beaming forth from the eternal lamp of the Word of life to remain on the path of Justice and righteousness.
In righteousness is life, not knowing the right from wrong which is ignorance is not an excuse. God had made adequate provision for us in the Word. We need to read, study, meditate, obey and apply it to any department of our lives wherein we need the Word.
The Word of God is living and powerful; the Word is full of life, there is nothing hidden from the Word; in fact, everything is naked before whom we shall give account.
Verses 133 of Psalms chapter 119 say “Direct my steps by your Word and let no iniquity have dominion over me.”
We can only please God by our Faith in the Word. And faith comes by hearing and understanding the Word of life. If your desires is good and sorrow free life, if you don’t want iniquity to have dominion over you, then subscribe to the dictate of the Word. Let Wisdom of God leads you in all areas of life.
The Word of God Heals:
Apart from directing our paths, the Word of God also heals us. The Divine is immune to sickness and diseases. Heaven is a place that is full of the Glory, Power and Wisdom of God. Non-sense disease and sickness cannot reside there.
So, if we can take in the Word of God and let the light penetrate our heart until we understand it and let it become part of us, diseases and sickness will flee away. Light and darkness cannot co-exist in the same place at any given time. If there is still darkness of sickness and diseases in any department of our lives, it means the Glorious light of the Word of life have not reach that spot in our heart.
This Truth is ever alive in the book of Proverbs chapter 4 verses 20 to 22
20 My son, give attention to my words; incline your ear to my sayings.
21 Do not let them depart from your eyes; keep them in the midst of your heart.
22 For they are life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh.
Sitting at the feet and looking up to Jesus as we keep all His commandments from the deepest part of our heart brings us into life everlasting and when you are divine, your flesh is full of health.
Consuming the Word of God also rejuvenate. You are restored back to the days of your youth if you are full of God’s word
Job 33 verse 22-25 says “……His flesh shall be young like a child’s, He shall return to the days of his youth”. 80 years old will be like a 40 years old man in action, strength and speech. Moses was 120 years old and his eyes was not deep nor his natural force abated. Moses saw the LORD, so he cannot be sick or weakened.
In Him were all things consists, nothing pass the power of the Word of God.
These two are just part of the numerous things the Word of Life can do for you. I pray that we begin to enjoy the Word of God to the point of being our daily food.
