22 For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.
20 My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.
21 Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.
When we find the Word of God, it then becomes life to us. Our opening verse in Proverbs 4:22 tells us that God’s Word is life and health to all our flesh. The word “health” simply means medicine, which in essence stands for healing. Medicine is for healing, isn’t it? When you take medicine for any purpose, it boils down to one thing in particular – recovery or healing. Therefore, the Word is life to us and healing to all our flesh. We are meant to live in health and healing by the Word of God. That’s God’s purpose for giving His Word to us. When we receive the Word into our heart, the Word works in us to produce health and healing. Why? The Bible tells us that the Word has life in it. There is life-giving power in the Word. The Lord Jesus speaking in John 6:63 tells us that His Word, the Word, is Spirit and life. God’s Word is Spirit and life! So, when you listen to the Word and receive it into your heart, it is therapeutic. The Word has curative and transforming power!
Proverbs 4:22 tells us that the Word is health (medicine) to all our flesh. “All their flesh” refers to everything in our body, from the very crown of the head to the soles of the feet. Every organ of our body, every cell of our being, every tissue, every vein, every artery and everything is part of “all their flesh”. Your kidneys, liver, lungs, stomach, intestines, eyes, ears, nose, tongue, blood, heart, and everything in your body are included in the expression “all their flesh”. So, when you walk in the light of the Word, and receive the Word into your heart, it becomes life to every part of your body – all your flesh. Nothing can stop your healing or health when the Word is already at work in you. Just like natural pharmaceutical drugs work in our body only when we have used them according to the doctor’s prescription, the Word works healing and health in us after we have received it into our heart. When you receive the Word into you by faith, the power thereof is released to make good anything and everything that your faith demands. Get the Word into your heart!!!
MY SOLID FRONT (YOUR CONFESSION):
In the Name of Jesus Christ, I declare that the Word is working in me unto healing and health. I declare that the Word is life and healing unto every part of my body in Jesus’ Name! Amen.
