"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God."--John 1:1 "Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path."--Psalm 119:105 "The entrance of thy words gives light..."--Psalm 119:130 "The grass withers, the flower fades; but the Word of our God shall stand forever."--Isaiah 40:8 "For the Word of God is alive, and powerful..."--Hebrews 4:12 "...the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life."--John 6:63 As we can see from the Scriptures above, the Word of God is life. Because the Word is life, it gives life. God's word is not archaic or antiquated. It is relevant and applicable for the challenges we face in life today. Whatever obstacle or hardship that is seemingly depleting you and draining the "life" out of you--apply the Word of God. It will give life to a seemingly dead situation.
