What is the life-giving flow that gives life from God?--It's the Word (God's Word in the Bible and from His prophets)! It's His Word that gives us life and food and nourishment and strength and spiritual health. Jesus Himself said, "The Words that I speak unto you, they are Spirit and they are Life!" (Jn.6:63)
Some people become "alienated from the life of God." (Eph.4:18) How is this possible?--It's when they become separated from the Word, because Jesus is the Word! (Jn.1:1,14) The minute you start crowding the Word out of your life, you are getting too busy!--Or when you lose confidence in the Word because of your own double-mindedness and double-heartedness! If you're not faithfully feeding from the Word, absorbing the Word, living in the Word and preaching and practising the Word, beware!--Because when you neglect the Word, you neglect the Lord!--And the minute you do that, you are programmed to spiritually self-destruct!
There's nothing more powerful than the Word! The Word is the secret of power and victory and overcoming and fruitfulness and fire and life and warmth and light and leadership!--The secret of everything good is the Word!
