The Profit of the Word
Daily Devotional for April 8th & 9th
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. 2 Timothy 3:16-17
How great is the word of God? It is the most wonderful word in the world. There are a lot of books written that touch us in some way, but the bible cannot be compared to them. It’s not just a book; it’s a living thing! It goes down past the heart of man into the depth of man’s soul. It deals with us on a level that nothing else can. With all the untimely truths there are in the word of God, its profit cannot be measured nor can it be ignored. Your bible you hold cannot be counted dear enough.
The reason is because it is inspired; meaning “God breathed” it. Any word that God speaks brings forth a creation of some sort. This world was created, not by God’s hands, but by His Word. Genesis 1:3 & Hebrews 11:3. The bible is profitable for warring against the devil as well. Jesus used “It is written” when He faced Satan in the wilderness. It is the “Sword of the Spirit.” Although every word people speak has lasting effects, when God speaks there is power. His Word is the most powerful word in the world.
But what about you; how does it profit you? Are you doubting what God is able or willing to do in your life? Our faith comes by hearing the Word of God. Romans 10:17. This means that your faith is strengthened when you read the bible. The word of God will kindle your faith like nothing else. Have you ever wondered why you’re hindered every time you attempt to read the word of God? It’s because God’s Word is your sword to wage war on the devil. When we take word of God, the devil has to run because he cannot war against it.
This revolution of Jesus Christ still marches on in our world almost 2000 years later. It’s because of the word of God. God’s word promises so many things! You can receive healing, deliverance, and other promises when your faith is ignited as you read God’s word. God has given you everything you need to be victorious in this world. You can be perfect (complete) thoroughly furnished (equipped) if you will study and apply it in your life.
