The rarest treasures of life are found in his truth. That’s why God’s Word is prized like others prize the finest gold. Sweeter also than honey are his living words— sweet words dripping from the honeycomb! (Psalm 19:10 TPT)
A few weeks ago I was asked to share virtually at a Youth Retreat. The topic was “Power of Daily Devotions – studying God’s Word. I loved this topic because there is indeed power found in the Word of God and we get that through daily devotions with Him, we get that by studying, praying, and applying His Word.
I’ve often said that the Bible is probably one of the most underutilized weapon or tool used by believers. It gathers dust sitting on shelves, many have become content with short, “motivational” passages to get by, like a dose of daily vitamins. Sadly it seems that studying the Word is no longer a priority for many.
Let’s look at some Scripture that reminds us of the power of God’s Word.
His Word Guides Us:
For they warn us, your servants, and keep us from following the wicked way, giving a lifetime guarantee: great success to every obedient soul! (Psalm 19:11 TPT)
Truth’s shining light guides me in my choices and decisions; the revelation of your Word makes my pathway clear. (Psalm 119:105)
His Word Is Eternal:
Standing firm in the heavens and fastened to eternity is the Word of God.
(Psalm 119:89 TPT)
His Word Equips:
The Lord Yahweh has equipped me with the anointed, skillful tongue[a] of a teacher— to know how to speak a timely word to the weary. Morning by morning, he awakens my heart. He opens my ears[b] to hear his voice, to be trained to teach. (Isaiah 50:4 TPT)

Let us hold fast to the Word and not neglect our daily devotions and study His Word.
