Jesus, Our Waymaker

John

Do you want to discover the secret source of life and good health? Let’s see what the Bible says in Proverbs 4:20-23 BSB:

My son, pay attention to my words;

   incline your ear to my sayings.

Do not lose sight of them;

   keep them within your heart.

For they are life to those who find them,

   and health to the whole body.

Guard your heart with all diligence,

   for from it flow springs of life.

What can we learn from this?

Be attentive when you read the Bible! Put aside everything else, even if it’s urgent. Concentrate and give God’s Word your full attention. Lean in close – give nothing less than 100%!

Store God’s Word in your heart! Memorise verses from the Bible and recite them as you go about your day. Keep your eyes on God’s Word and do not let it escape from the centre of your heart!

Find God’s word and you’ve discovered the secret source of good health! Do you need healing for your entire body? Would you like to stay in good health? Then trust what God says – His Word will heal you!

Guard the place where God’s Word is stored! That storehouse is your heart – your mind, your soul, your inner being. Don’t allow life’s distractions, hurtful words and evil desires to rob you. Stand guard over your heart and keep it full of God’s Word!

Dear friend, fill your heart with God’s Word. Don’t lose sight of it. Keep it safe. It’s the secret source of good health for your whole body!

Dear Father,

Thank you Lord for giving us healing, and making it simple and free. You’ve placed healing in the Bible, and we believe what you say – that those of us who find your Word will have life and health for our whole body!

Lord, grant us strength to be disciplined, and help us to guard our hearts against the many, many things that try to steal your words from our heart. May we guard our hearts so that good life continues to flow!

In Jesus’ Name we pray,

Amen!
