SCRIPTURE: Neither have I gone back from the commandment of his lips; I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary food. Job 23:12
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Men of stature and stamina treasure the Word of God.
It has been confirmed that the Word of God is a treasure for great men. Men of stature and stamina treasure the Word of God.
Job in Job 23:12 says,
Neither have I gone back from the commandment of his lips; I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary food.
Now, let me give you examples of men who treasured God’s Word and how it affected their destinies positively.
The man of God, Smith Wigglesworth, always had the Bible in his possession all the time. And God used him to raise about 24 dead persons. It was said that he had the most perfect set of teeth that the dentists had ever seen even in old age. At the age of 86, he was in absolute health when he passed on.
He was known to have studied his Bible every thirty minutes. He opened and read his Bible before he ate any physical food. And so, he walked in unusual physical and spiritual stamina.
E. W. Kenyon, was another servant of God who lived in unusual and unbeatable strength before he died. He died at the age of 80. While on earth, he was like a walking Bible.
At the age of 80, he would be walking, and young people would be running after him, yet they couldn’t catch up with his steps. This was because he had unusual strength.
When I was a teenager, our greatest passion then was the Word of God. We looked for messages that would set us on fire. We read books that would ignite our passion for God.
Then, no one was concerned about fashion or what to wear. We spent so much money to buy Christian tapes and materials that would set us on course for God.
And today, I don’t need to look for clothes, clothes look for me.
And when people look at me, they would say, “How I wish I were like this man” The truth is, you can only be like anyone you admire if you carry what he carries.
My counsel is, treasure the Word of God.
Remember this: Men of stature and stamina treasure the Word of God.
- Make up your mind to treasure the Word of God.

PRAYER: Thank You Lord for Your Word to me today. I receive grace to treasure Your Word Lord in Jesus’ Name.
