Revived by God’s Word

“I will never forget Your precepts, for by them You have revived me” (Psalms 119:93).  Whatever our difficulty or condition might be, there is enough comfort in God’s word to support us.  If His word dwells richly in our souls, it will keep our faith strong and vigorous.  But God’s word is the only source for that kind of spiritual strength.  Why only God’s word?  Because it contains the knowledge and promises that meet our specific needs.  It is filled with the serious considerations and arguments that nourish faith.  It is the only source of knowledge that has the glorious authority of God behind it, and can therefore persuade us that His commands are reasonable.  If this wonderful revelation from God cannot move our hearts, what can?  The Holy Spirit delights to use the word as His instrument to influence us and transform us.
