He (King Hezekiah) trusted in the Lord, the God of Israel; so that after him there was none like him among all the kings of Judah, nor among those who were before him. For he clung to the Lord; he did not depart from following Him, but kept His commandments, which the Lord had commanded Moses.

Living Word

Every word of God is pure; He is a shield to those who take refuge in Him.

God is His word. It is living and active just as God Himself. His word is pure and cleansing. God’s word brings us to the awareness of our need to be obedient to His word. His word is a shield to those who take refuge in Him.

And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us; and we saw His glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.
John 1:14 NASB

🌹Is the Word living in You? Is the Word active? Are you being perfected, transformed by the Word? Read it and watch as God changes you.
