Life can bring about some changes that many of us have a tough time dealing with. We all have issues and situations that may break us down emotionally. Our emotional breaking takes a negative effect on us physically. Before long, we are in a clinic being prescribed medication to help us “cope” with life. Once we are prescribed this medicine, we are to take it as instructed if we want to get better. Once this medication is in our system helping us to function better, we tend to miss a pill or two and OH BOY! When we miss one, it throws us off and we become a wrecking ball tearing up everything and everyone in sight! Then once we kind of double up on our pills and get the medicine back in our system, we go back to functioning like we should. What if we all made God’s Word our medication? What if we took the medication of The Word like we should….like God wants us to? What if we allowed The Word to become embedded deeply within us? What if? I will tell you what would happen if we did. If we allow God’s Word to become our medication, we can cope with anything or anyone that comes against us. We won’t worry about every problem that comes along because we will know that God is bigger than any problem. We won’t allow anyone to make us feel inferior because we will know we are a child of God. We would be able to speak The Word to Satan when he plots to destroys us. When we allow The Word to get into our system, The Word will be heard in our talk and The Word will be reflected in our walk. So today, I am making the choice to get hooked on the best medication there is – GOD’S WORD. What about you? Without it, it is simply impossible to handle life. Without it, problems will overtake us. Without it, the world will swallow us whole. I don’t want to possess a “superficial” spirituality. I want spirituality to be so real and genuine inside of me that it shines brightly on the outside of me. And I can’t get to this point without taking the medication of God’s Word each day. “But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks at his natural face in a mirror; for once he has looked at himself and gone away, he has immediately forgotten what kind of person he was” (James 1:22-25). Be Blessed. – S.L.M.
