We run after solutions to our problems all day long and overlook the most powerful, supernatural thing available–the Word of our Creator.
Humans love the idea of the supernatural; they search for anything that might be magical in any way:
- Potions and crystals,
- Talismans, herbs, and formulas,
- Excalibur, the Holy Grail, and the Fountain of Youth,
- Relics, special knowledge, secrets, incantations, and more.
We all want a solution, and the more powerful that solution is, the better. But, we fail to open the Book of Answers, Knowledge, Wisdom, and Power.
Yes. The Word of God is supernatural. And, God has arranged it so that we can actually hold it in our hands and see it with our eyes. We can listen to it, meditate on it, memorize it, and share it with others.
“For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12
Try this: Pray. Then, open the Bible to a random spot and start reading. Soon, you will discover that the spot wasn’t so random and that the Word of God is speaking to you. YOU. Do this day after day, and you will be changed forever.
