The person smiled at me and said, "Ok! Ok! you are certainly passionate about His Word. Maybe you're right"
Yes they were right I do hunger after God's Word, but I still fail to be in it always like I want. But those times I skip it I can tell you that I become like a person anxious to get back to her favorite book to see what happens next!
His Word keeps me blameless and pure
His Word is a treasure I store in my heart
Memorizing His Word may keep me from sin
I meditate on His Word and delight in it
I am strengthen by His Word
His Word offers me hope
It is a light for my path
His Word brings freedom
It gives understanding (Ps 119)
His Word is Truth (John 17:17)
It is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness
It equips me for every good work (2Titus 3:16,17)
His Word is my sword (Eph 6:17)
His Word is living and active
It is sharper than any double-edged sword
it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow;
it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. (Heb 4:12)
Reading His Word brings joy to my heart (Ps 19:8)
His Word is trustworthy (Ps 111:7)
Of course there are many more reasons to be THANKFUL for His WORD, but you'll have to read it for yourself to find out!
