ATTEND TO THE WORD

ATTEND TO THE WORD

Proverbs 4:20-23 (NKJV) 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. 23 Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life.

For the next few days, we are going to look into these great verses.  There is so much here, so let us get started.

Verse 20: “My son, give attention to my words.”  God is telling us to give His Word first place in our heart.  In the military, when an officer says “Attention!” the soldiers snap to it.  That is how God want us to be with His Word.

The word attention means concentration, dedication, attentiveness, diligence, mindfulness, affection, and studiousness.  It is a verb meaning to listen carefully, to pay attention, to give heed, and to obey.  That is pretty good stuff!

Our Father is telling us to give His Word our full attention, to dedicate ourselves to it, and to study it.  Why is that?  Well, as we will see later on in these verses, it brings health to our being.

In Hebrews 4:12 it says that the Word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

God’s Word is alive!  It has power within it!  Just as a seed will produce after its own kind, so God’s Word will produce after our Father’s kind.

So what do you need today? Do you need patience, or joy, or any other promise from the Word?  Then get the promise from the Bible, attend to it, and watch the harvest come!

Confession: Today, I attend to the Word of God.  It will produce an abundant harvest in my life!
