God's Word is Health

"My son, give attention to my words; incline your ear to My sayings. Do not let them depart from your sight; Keep them in the midst of your heart. For they are life to those who find them, and health to their body." Proverbs 4:20-22

Godís Word is health to the whole body. God has provided Word seeds to save the soul, comfort the troubled, encourage and strengthen the weak, and to bring health to the body. Our text says, -"Do not let them depart from your sight; keep them in the midst of your heart."

Godís Word must be received and acted upon in faith. Donít allow the devil to distract you. When we attend to Godís Words - not letting them depart but keeping them in our hearts, we have provided good soil. It will bring forth good fruit. Just as all natural seeds work beneath the surface, we must believe what we do not yet see and know that Godís seed is at work - soon we will see the sprout.

When your eyes are on your symptoms and your mind is occupied with them more than with Godís Word, you have in the soil the wrong kind of seed which will not produce the harvest you want. The devil will sow tares in your mind if you let him. He will sow seeds of doubt. The devil is a liar and a deceiver. He doesnít just deceive with lying words but also deceives using lying wonders - outward manifestations.

The end-time false prophet will use lying wonders to deceive the whole world during the tribulation - so it shouldnít surprise us if Satan tries to deceive us today with lying symptoms. Obviously, some symptoms are real and God provides healing for them, but some may be lying signs sent to deceive us. Let us receive the Word, the true Seed and reject the lying words/seeds from the devil.

Since each seed reproduces after itís own kind, a seed of doubt can never grow a blessing, -"But he must ask in faith without doubting, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind. For that man ought not to expect that he will receive anything from the Lord." (James 1) A tare is a weed, and it is impossible to sow tares and reap wheat. The Bible and even nature itself teaches that we reap whatever we sow.

Your symptoms may point you to death, but Godís Word will point you to life. Jesus often asked the sick, -"Do you believe?" We must believe to receive.

We rid ourselves of doubt when we look intently and steadfastly at the inerrant Word of the Living God and know that He cannot lie. Lying spirits will speak into our consciousness, but seeing only what God says will produce and increase our faith. We can get to the point where it is easier to believe than to doubt.
