The Power of God's Word
We have the word of God with us at all times. The Bible. Scripture. How amazing! How wonderful! We can read it anytime. We can meditate on it any hour. In doing so strengthens us. Builds us up in our relationship with the Almighty God. It reminds us of who we are in Christ Jesus. Helps us live the Christian life. Enables us to live an abundant life in a sinful world. Hebrews 4:12 says, "For the word of God is living and active. 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." Paul tell the young minister Timothy in his second letter to him in chapter 3:16 "All Scripture is God-breathed and useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work."
As I was in the hospital and going through physical therapy I would think and meditate on a passage of scripture to get me through. As I lay in ICU I prayed the passage. As I was going through physical therapy and took steps I would re sight it in my mind. It was also the first thing that I wrote down on a paper for occupational therapy. The passage was Philippians 4:13 "I can do everything through him who gives me strength."
