Every word of God is flawless; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him. Proverbs 30:5
There thousands of manuscripts of different ancient Greek stories or some other foreign writing out in circulation. With each of the translations there are many different differences of opinion as to what was originally said. There are many faults in the what was written.
There are also thousands of books that have been written giving information on how to do something. In most of these books there can be faults as to what was written. It can also be found that many different books deny the ‘facts’ in other books. Truth is hard to come by.
The writer of this proverbs knows that the word of God is perfect with no flaws in it. One can hold on to it and be protected by God.
God has allowed His word to be written down so that people can know what He has said and what He desires. These words that He has said are perfect words that work for every person. God has worked out all of the details in His word to a point of perfection.
Reading and listening to His word gives a person everything that they need to know in how to live on this earth and prepare for eternity. It reveals who God is.
When a person holds onto His word and follows it, God will be a shield around the person. The person is taking up his refuge in God and His word, not in the temporary things of this world.
Having God’s word in one’s life brings about a peace and comfort of His security and love. Without His word, there is no hope in this life, it is eat, live, die.
Throughout your life you will have many situations to deal with. Go to God’s word to seek how to deal with them. Hold on to His promises that He has for you. Know the hope you have in Jesus Christ, knowing that all this life will end some day and you will have eternity in heaven.
You can trust God’s word to you. It will never fail you. God will never fail you. Instead of holding on to the things of this world that will fade away and fail, hold onto His word.
God will hold on to and protect you when you hold to and follow His word for your life.
I pray today that you will know God’s word to you; that you will trust God’s word; that you will know the security in God’s word; and that you will know the truth in God’s word.
