God's Word Is A Medicine

You can take God's Word as a medicine with no danger of taking an overdose.

You do not have to buy it. It is free.

Whatever sickness or disease you are suffering from, God's Word can cure it. It is effective for any condition.

If satisfactory results are not obtained right away, double the dosage.

Like any medicine, God's Word has to be taken to be effective. It will not work sitting on the shelf. And it has to be taken according to the directions.

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:

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.

God's Word will not return to God void, but will produce what He sent it to do.

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.

Filling your thoughts with the Word of God more than anything else is the key. The more of God's medicine you take, the better off you will be!
