Proverbs 4:20-22(KJV); My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.
The wisdom of the scriptures teaches us that the Word of God is FOUND.
For this reason, the Bible says ‘They are life unto those that FIND them.’
A man who understands that the Word is found will treat it differently from one who does not understand this truth.
King David was a man who knew that the Word is found. In Psalms 119:162, he says, ‘I rejoice at thy Word as one that FINDETH great spoil.’ The message version renders it thus, ‘I am ecstatic over what you say like one who strikes it rich.’
Because he knew it was something to be discovered, found, dug out of eternal realms, he received it with excitement and treated it with reverence.
By contrast, the children of Israel in the wilderness did not understand that the Word is found. The manna they received every day allegorically refers to the Word of God.
How did they treat it?
After a while, it became an ordinary thing. They grumbled saying, ‘…now our soul is dried away: there is nothing at all, beside this manna, before our eyes.’
These are people who do not understand the price of accessing daily revelations of the Word and thus treat as common that which is uncommon.
Child of truth, it does not matter how many times you may have heard the Word, always maintain the attitude of one who knows that the Word is found.
Receive it with delight and constant joy. When you do, you will find fresh revelation even in that which you have heard several times over.
Glory to God!

It does not matter how many times you may have heard the Word, always maintain the attitude of one who knows that the Word is found. Receive it with delight and constant joy. When you do, you will find fresh revelation even in that which you have heard several times over.
PRAYER: Father, I thank you for this knowledge. Thank you for the priceless gift of your Word. It is my manual for living, my roadmap to destiny and my blueprint for success. I study and receive it with joy and embrace it as a great treasure. Every day, I see it as new and fresh. I launch into greater depths daily. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
