The Word of God

But if I say I’ll never mention the Lord or speak in his name, his word burns in my heart like a fire. It’s like a fire in my bones! I am worn out trying to hold it in! I can’t do it!


Jeremiah 20:9 New Living Translation (NLT)

There are those who doubt God's Word but claim Christ as Savior and Lord. The question is: How else do we get to know Him? The people used by God to write His Word were inspired by the Holy Spirit. It is far too obvious that it is the Spirit who helps us to discern God's truth. When we allow the enemy to distort the truth of God's Word (which he knows well is the truth) or diminish it through unbelief in everything it says, we are allowing Him to block our path to God's Kingdom. This must stand as a battle for God to fight for us. It gives reason to why Jesus tells us so many times in the Bible to only "believe."

Our sovereign God is able to use anything He made in anyway He chooses. Glory to His name, He has given us His Word through ordinary people so we can receive it. Many who don't believe it haven't even read it. Yet, it is the one book that has remained timeless and available, and only increasing in providing clear instruction for living through countless translations and versions. When we study God's Word, it is being written on our hearts. Those who do study find they have been given the ability to interpret its meaning as God intended.

We can argue Scripture all we want, but just like God, it does not change to suit our human interpretations. God's Word is truth and this is the truth that Jesus, God's Word made flesh, came to share. We can be thankful when we are so full of God's Word that we can't hold it in. That is exactly what it is intended to do.

For no word from God will ever fail. Luke 1:37 NIV

For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Hebrews 4:12 NIV
