“I rejoice at thy word, as one that findeth great spoil.” Psalms 119:162 (KJV)
The Passion Translation of our scripture for today says: “Your promises are the source of my bubbling joy; the revelation of your word thrills me like one who has discovered hidden treasure.” And of course, it is more than great spoils. Why? The Word can heal! The Word can deliver! The Word can set you free! The Word can lift you up. The Word can overrule on your behalf! The Word can cause you to overtake. The word can bring total restoration. The Word can fill your lips with testimony.
The Word of God declares in Psalms 119:18: “Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law”. There are wonders in the Word. As you begin to get addicted to the Word, you will become a wonder. As you walk in wonder, you will become a wonder. That is God’s plan and purpose for you. Therefore, become addicted to His Word. You will always celebrate whatever you are addicted to.
Everything is falling apart. The world is in a cup of trembling. People are wondering what is going on. All postulations, all calculations, and all predictions are falling flat. No one has the answer. But I have come to present to you, something that can never fail. The infallible, errorless, impregnable, and authoritative Word of God.
The answers you need so desperately are in the Word. Get addicted to this Word and you’ll never regret it. This is the hour to get addicted! This is the hour to connect to the Word of God. You will see the Word become flesh in your life. The Word will manifest in your world. Celebrate the Word! Place premium value on the Word! Hold on tenaciously to the Word. Fill your heart with the Word of life. Consider the declaration of Jesus: “Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.” (Mark 13:31 KJV). The Word of God will always stand the test of time. It has the answers to every challenge you may be facing. Make the Word the lamp to your feet and the light to your path.
