KEY SCRIPTURE: Jeremiah 23:29. “Is not my word like as a fire? Saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?”
God’s word has a number of symbols that the Bible reveals. These symbols show us what the word would do and it is worth knowing them as we apply the word in our lives.
1. The word as a hammer.
As a hammer the word breaks up every hardened and stubborn heart. If there is any stubborn heart with you keep applying the word and that unwanted nature would be crumbled It also hammers all demonic powers as we apply the word against them. Jeremiah 23:29 “Is not my word like as a fire? Saith the Lord: and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?
2. The word like a lamp. As a lamp it guides us in darkness and exposes all the deception of the devil. Go to the word for light in any aspect of your life that is filled with darkness Psalm 119:105 “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path”.
3. The word is like a mirror.
As we behold the word as a mirror we see a reflection of ourselves which is the righteous nature of God. We are transformed into this image from glory to glory. Keep reading the bible and the wrong things about you would vanish. 2 Corinthians 3:18 ” But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.”
4. The word is like milk. The new Christian must be fed with the word of God, by which he may grow. This is very necessary to keep him or her up in the Lord. Milk is always tenderly given to the new born. We must lovingly and cautiously give the new born in Christ the milk of the word. 1 Peter 2:2 ” As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that you may grow thereby.”
4. The word is like a seed. As a seed it will produce whatever it talks about, if we sincerely plant it in our hearts (that’s if we believe what it says). We should never be occupied or worried about how bad a situation may be; just allow the word to be planted in your hearts allowing it to grow. It would bring a harvest of results. (1st Peter 1:23). Isaiah 55:11 “So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall accomplish that which I please and prosper in the thing where to I sent it”. Just keep the promise of scripture in your heart and in your mouth and you would surely reap the harvest of miracles.
God’s word does everything and so comes in various symbols. I yield myself totally to it so that whatever it came to do in my life, would perfectly be accomplished.
Psalms 19:10 ” More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb”.
Matthew 4:4 ” But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God”.
