God spoke the Word and the earth and heavens were made. (Genesis 1) The Word is like rain and snow coming down from heaven, watering the earth, giving “seed to the sower and bread to the eater.” (Isaiah 55:10,11,12) The Word becomes a tree and the birds of the air lodge in its branches.
Flowers, in order to find air and breathe, break through rocks with a pulverizing force, just like the Word pierces through the soul. It sharpens the believer for prayer and from sin as a whetstone sharpens a tool. (Psalm 119:28) “Is not my Word like a fire and a hammer which breaks the rock in pieces?” (Jeremiah 23:29)
Faith grows by hearing the Word of God .(Romans 10:17), and according to the Bible, Jesus is the Word that became flesh and dwelt among us. (John 1:1,14)
The Word is like a bottomless sea, and the more we explore its caverns, the deeper we want to go……. (Judy Whittaker)
