God’s Word Supplies Life, the Word of God is alive.
Faith comes by hearing and hearing comes by the Word of GOD!
Many of us have a desire to read the Word, but we’re not sure how to go about it., I encourage you to take my advice: When you open your Bible, zoom in straight on Jesus. Home in right on our beautiful Savior. Then, you will experience life when you read God’s Word.
When you come to God’s Word desiring to see Jesus and you find Him and behold Him in the Word, something special happens to you. LIFE is supernaturally imparted to you. You see, God is in the business of supplying life to every area of your life. In the Book of Proverbs, it says that God’s words “are life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh”. (Proverbs 4:22) This means that if you are tired, reading God’s Word will recharge and energize you. If you are depressed, it will pull you out of the darkness of depression, set your mind free and bring peace and joy. And if you are sick, it will bring a flood of healing and divine health to your body!
God’s life is what you need when you see signs of death in your circumstances. Is your marriage failing? Have your dreams been crushed or put on the back burner? Have your finances problems, debts? If there’s death operating in any area of your life, don’t despair and don’t lose hope! Don’t struggle, strive and scheme to make things happen. Beloved, cast your cares to the Lord for He cares for you, and just spend time in God’s Word to receive His supply of life.
See Jesus In The Word
There will be an impartation of God’s kind of health and life to every area of your life. It comes not just by simply reading the Word superficially, but by seeing Jesus in the Word. You may ask, “Well, Pastor Lydia, all that sounds really cool, but what does it mean to see Jesus in the Word? How do I do that so that I can receive God’s supply of life?”
Those are good and fair questions. Let me start by explaining that contrary to popular opinion, the Bible is not a book of rules for right living. No, the Bible is ALL about Jesus. Every page speaks of Jesus, God’s Son, the object of His delight!
The Bible is all about Jesus, but more specifically, it is about His loving sacrifice at Calvary. His blood has cleansed us of every sin and His death has brought us abundant and everlasting life! From Genesis to Revelation, our Bible has one grand theme—our Lord Jesus and His perfect sacrifice.
So you see, the Bible is not about us. It is all about Jesus and what He has done for us. Yet, when you find Him in the Word, you find yourself in Him for “as He is, so are we in this world”. (1 John 4:17) You discover that as He is righteous, accepted and favored before God, so are you. As He is full of health, wholeness and life, so are you!
I want to show you how when you see Jesus in the Word, you experience His life. Jesus said these amazing words, “…I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10) He also said, “…The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.” (John 6:63) In other words, you allow Jesus’ supply of life to flow in your life when you see or behold Him in the Word. This is precisely how you are transformed from glory to glory. (2 Corinthians 3:18) As you keep beholding the Lord and His glory, you’ll be transformed—from sickness to health, from knowing only lack to experiencing abundance, and from having an unforgiving heart to having a joyful and loving heart.
It’s Really All About Jesus
Many of the Bible stories, parables and even Old Testament feasts and laws are actually about Jesus. Jesus is the magnificent, watertight ark of salvation in the ancient flood of Noah. In the story of Abraham’s sacrifice, He is the strong and youthful Isaac, who carried the wood (the cross) up Mount Moriah (Mount Calvary). Then, on Mount Moriah, He is the true sacrificial ram sent from the Father and caught in the thicket.
In the life story of Joseph in the Book of Genesis, Jesus is our heavenly Joseph. He came to His own, but His own did not receive Him. Rejected by His brothers, He found comfort in a Gentile bride, and became a blessing to the Gentile world. But He has not forgotten His brothers, who will recognize Him at His second appearance. Isn’t this the story of God’s ancient people, Israel? They rejected their Brother-Messiah, but will acknowledge Him at His second appearance.
In the love story of Ruth, He is our heavenly Boaz, our willing and most able kinsman redeemer. In the law of the Hebrew servant, He is that faithful servant, the one who said, “I love my master, my wife, and my children; I will not go out free,” and who was pierced and who remains a servant forever. (Exodus 21:5–6)
In the Book of Leviticus, the details of His sufferings and crucifixion are hidden in the details of the offerings. In the Book of Judges, when Samson stretched out his hands and pushed against the two pillars moments before his death (Judges 16:29–30), what do you see? The cross of Jesus! Like Samson, Jesus accomplished more (against our enemies) in His death than in His life on earth.
