God's Word Is Medicine
God's Word is medicine — for any weakness or sickness in body, mind, finances, family, marriage, etc.
Whatever sickness or disease you suffer from, God's Word can cure it. God's Word is effective for any condition. It works as a preventative as well as a cure. There is no cost and no danger of taking an overdose.
Like any medicine, God's Word must be taken to be effective. It will not work sitting on the shelf. And it has to be taken according to the directions.
But if you will follow God's directions as faithfully as you would follow the directions of a human doctor, you will see wonderful results.
Here are the directions:
PROVERBS 4:20-23 NKJ 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.
In verse 22 the Hebrew word translated health is translated as medicine in some translations.
PSALM 107:20 NKJ 20 He sent His word and healed them, And delivered them from their destructions.
God's Word will heal. It is full of God's power and carries the authority of God who spoke it.
JOHN 8:31-32 NKJ 31 Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, "If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. 32 "And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."
You have the guarantee of Jesus — His Word will produce freedom.
But, you must abide, or continue in His Word. You must feed it in until you know that you know that you know the truth. Then you will act on that truth — and it will make you free.
God's medicine works by taking His Word into your being. You do that by listening to the Word, reading the Word, and speaking the Word.
You must fill your thoughts with the Word of God. The more of God's medicine you take, the better off you will be.
SAY THIS: I will take God's medicine daily and it will bring healing into my life.
