According to Your Word
Our Heavenly Father, in His Son, Jesus the Anointed One, through the Holy Spirit, has given us His Word to teach us all things about Himself, and about our relationship with Him. He has spoken and that â€œspoken nessâ€� is recorded in the Scriptures. We can know Him personally and know what He is like. As we learn through the Word what He is like, we find our own path in life. Our minds, our wills, our emotions are all addressed in reference to strength, healing, and wisdom.
The following listing is just some of the richness stored for us in one Psalm. It is only a partial listing, even of this one Psalm, yet will give an insight into the treasure of His Word. As you read through the listing, notice the words and phrases underlined. Make a list of them, and notice the abundance of help that is available to each believer in His Word. He is truly marvelous!
