“The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the Word only, and my servant shall be healed.”
“We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:.”
The Word is a priceless and invaluable treasure. Nothing compares to it in value and power. The Word is a gift from the Father to us; it is the Father’s gift of light as to how the divine life works. It is our right to be all that He has made us to be. The Word is the Father’s empowerment to fellowship with Him; it is our contact with the Father. John 1:1-3 tells us that the Word was in the beginning with the Father, and that the Word is deity and by Him all things were made. The Word is the Father’s making power. God makes by the Word. Nothing can be made without the Word. We are born again by the Word. The Father gives birth to children by the Word. 1 Peter 1:23 tells us that we are born again by the incorruptible seed of the Word which lives and abides forever. The Word has revealed the Father to us, the very divine life of God; it has shown the Father to us, telling us the intricate and detailed dimensions of His divine nature.
The Word is our light, compass and roadmap in this world of darkness and confusion. The Father has given us the Word that we might live by it. Matthew 4:4 tells us that man lives by the Word, not by bread alone. Our life is solely and absolutely dependent on the Word. The Word is the Father’s survey lines that apportion our inheritance unto us. We are enriched by the Word with riches, wealth and honour. We can never be broke in fellowship with the Word. The Word has the power to transform mindsets and change lives irreversibly. The Word can make a success out of any man.
Anytime you want to be of help to people, you may give money, but know that such is only temporal. There are things that can be spent and exhausted, but you can’t exhaust the Word. When the Word gets into you, it will keep replenishing itself over and over again. The Word is a substance and vessel of eternal life. You can become all that God had in mind before the foundation of the world by giving heed to the Word of God as a light that shines in a dark place until the day star and the day dawn rise in you. The Word is the seed that when sown in your heart will keep producing results in you forever. Beloved, treasure the Word with all sensitivity and fervency!
My Solid Front (Confession): I declare that my value for the Word is on the increase; I cherish the Word; I incline my heart constantly to receive heavenly communication from the Word. I am never stranded because the Word is always working in me; I reap the fruit of the Word eternally in Jesus Name. Amen.
