FOR THEY ARE LIFE TO THOSE WHO FIND THEM

FOR THEY ARE LIFE TO THOSE WHO FIND THEM

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.

Life is what we want!  Jesus said in the second part of John 10:10 ”…I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”  God wants us to have a good, full life; a life filled with Himself; a life of victory and success.

So how do we have this?  This verse says that we get life when we find the Word.  His Word is like a treasure.  You can get good things from it by reading it, but the true wealth of His Word comes as we dig into it.

Look at Psalm 19:10: “More to be desired are they then gold, yea, than much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.”  His Word must become more valuable to us than the riches of this world, and when we put His Word in that high of a place in our lives, God, our dear Father, takes care of all the needs that we have.

His Word is life to us, so let us start digging into it and see what treasures we might find today.  You might ask, “What does that mean, to dig into the Word?”  Well, it means to not just read it, but to let it change us.  We are not blessed because we hear the Word; we are blessed when we do it.  So when you find a verse that you know needs to come alive within you, hang out there for a while.  Read it, ponder it, and then do it, and it will become life to you!

Confession:  God’s Word is life to me, because I have found it.  I am a doer of the Word, and not a hearer only.  I put His Word in my heart, and it is life to me and to all my being.
