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.
They are health to all our flesh. I will take that, how about you? As we put into practice all the parts that we have been talking about these last few days, God’s Word becomes, as one person said, “Medicine to all our flesh.”
I do not know about you, but when I am hurting, I want some good medicine so that the pain will go away. Here, it says that God’s Word is our medicine. As I read it, and attend to it, and incline my ear to it, and keep it before my eyes, and let it have first place in my heart, it produces medicine to me and my flesh. It brings heath to my body!
So many people spend so much time trying to get healing by so many ways, and God is a good God and has made many ways to be healed. Thank God for doctors and medicine, but we can also take His Word, God’s Medicine, everyday to receive healing. I know that when I take a pill, I thank Him that He gave the doctors wisdom to help heal me. I put my faith in God in all things, because all wisdom comes from Him.
So go ahead and take a big dose of the Word of God, and watch what it does to your life and health. You can never have enough. His Word is so good!
Confession: I partake of the Word of God, and it brings health to me and to all my being. His Word is medicine to all of my flesh.
