Proverbs 4:20-22 – Verse of the Day 9/19/14
What has the power to heal you? When we try to answer this question, usually we think of doctors, the hospital, medicine, a healthy lifestyle or something like that, and for good reason. All of those things contribute to health and healing.
When it comes it our eternal life, however, the power to heal comes from a source that is not quite so obvious: words. This eternal healing comes not just from any words, but rather the words of God. The most powerful word is the one spoken by God that says, “this child is mine.” God declares that our sins are forgiven and it is this speech that means the difference between life and death. Then, having brought us from death to life, God gives us his words of truth recorded in the Bible as the path that leads to light. These words are life to those who find them, and healing to all their flesh.
While we know that God’s word is true and the path to life, we are always tempted to doubt them and follow another path. Pray that God would work in your heart, giving you the desire to follow the path that leads to healing and life. Thank Him for giving you the ability to believe and receive this eternal life through the gift of his declaration that your sins have been forgiven through the work of Jesus for you.
