God's Word is a panpharmacon--a salve for every wound...

Jerusalem, Israel, view of the Western Wall--March 2000
God's Word is very precious to me. I can truly say that I love God's Word. It has changed me and my life. God's words are not ordinary words, as the words of other people are.

His words are filled with power. The power of God is actually inherent in His Word and it heals, delivers, comforts, saves, corrects, and encourages us.

When we are very discouraged, we can actually take God's Word as medicine for our souls. His Word is a panpharmacon--a salve for every wound. It encourages the discouraged, lifts up the lowly and downtrodden, heals the sick, saves the lost, fills the empty, and counsels those who need to make a decision.

Jesus is the Word of God Who took on human flesh and dwelt among us. When we read, study, meditate on, or confess the Word of God, we are fellowshipping with Jesus.

We are actually taking Him as nourishment and we find that only He can satisfy our souls. God's Word is our spiritual food and we need it regularly, just as we need natural food. "Your words were found, and I ate them; and your words were to me a joy and the rejoicing of my heart..."--Jeremiah 15:16.
