Hebr. 4 12   For the Word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

We need to understand that the word of the living God is the place where we get best comfort and encouragements. We start to trust the Lord more as we uncover more truth in the Bible about the love of God in Christ Jesus.

Have you ever wondered where do we get faith that can move mountains? Do you even wonder how to start to lean on the Lord and not to your own understanding?

Well the bible says:

2nd Corinthians 5:17 faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God

There is no hope without exploring the truth about hope in the bible. When we start to read the bible, we will discover mainly on 4 areas. Hope, Faith, Love and Wisdom/Direction.

I would never become what I am now (simply the child of God) if it weren’t for the encouragements and hope I have found deep inside the mighty Word of God who carve out every uncertainties and doubts I had in my life.

There is no way I would develop faith in God through Christ if I didn’t see for my self how deep and how vast is the love of God in Christ Jesus. There is no other book that has the depth of truth, hope and guidance for living our lives according to the principles of God.

Jesus said, “Know the truth and the truth will set you free.” How do we know the truth? It is from reading the bible. There is no shortcut. The Word of God is the wisdom of God. It makes little children wise and renews the strength of elders. It has tremendous power to lift you up from your depression or whatever pain you are passing through.

It has practical stories. How can you not get up and keep going when you see God has already done it in other people lives thousands of times as it is written in the bible. Without the bible, all your love letters from your father is gone.

Without reading the bible regularly and keep in in you heart for good and bad times, we are easy target for the enemy. You are like a king with no guards.

When the enemy comes, you are vulnerable to attacks and the enemy can easily exploit your vulnerability. With the truth from the Bible, you have armed your self not only with defensive strategies but also with an attacking spirit.

Ephesians 6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.

No soldier goes to the battle with out wearing arms and appropriate defensive wearables.

Therefore, we need to also arm ourselves with the bullets of the words that come out from the living God. Jesus Christ defended himself from the attack from the devil at least three times just by utilizing the Word of God that is already written in the Bible. He is God and he may have used new strategy, but he used what is already in the bible.

Why? Because, he wants us to show us how mighty is the Word of God. He wants to set an example for us to live our lives by and defend ourselves from the darts of the devil. 

In conclusion, we need to treasure the Word of God like we never treasure any thing else. It is all we have got to turn to when we need courage, hope and comforter in times of trouble and discouragement. It is road map to righteousness and life full of joy. It teaches us how to use defense strategy against all attacks (I mean all of them), it documents all the lessons we need to take to learn how to love and fear God, it is all about real life stories on how to deal with anger, emotions, fear, sexual immorality, and so on.  

Matthew 4:4 But he answered and said, it is written, Man shall not live by b

ead alone, but by every word that proceeded out of the mouth of God.

Isaiah 55:11 So is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.

Job 23:12 I have not departed from the commands of his lips; I have treasured the words of his mouth more than my daily bread.

John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

James 1:21-23 Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you. Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror

2 Timothy 3:15-17 and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. 

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
