In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (John 1:1 NKJV)
God’s word can do a lot of things for its readers! God’s word chastens, cleanses, commands, comforts, completes, convicts, corrects, defends, directs, encourages, exhorts, feeds, frees, guides, heals, inspires, illuminates, leads, loves, perfects, purifies, rebukes, restores, reveals, stirs up, sanctifies, teaches, and tells the truth, and when we learn the truth, the truth is what sets us free!
For the word of the Lord is right, And all His work is done in truth. (Psalms 33:4 NKJV)

For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting, And His truth endures to all generations. (Psalms 100:5 NKJV)
For Your mercy reaches unto the heavens, And Your truth unto the clouds. (Psalms 57:10 NKJV)
The entirety of Your word is truth, And every one of Your righteous judgments endures forever. (Psalms 119:160 NKJV)
Examine me, O Lord, and prove me; Try my mind and my heart. For Your lovingkindness is before my eyes, And I have walked in Your truth. (Psalms 26:2, 3 NKJV)
O Lord, You are my God. I will exalt You, I will praise Your name, For You have done wonderful things; Your counsels of old are faithfulness and truth. (Isaiah 25:1 NKJV)
For I proclaim the name of the Lord : Ascribe greatness to our God. He is the Rock, His work is perfect; For all His ways are justice, A God of truth and without injustice; Righteous and upright is He. (The song of Moses, Deuteronomy 32:3, 4 NKJV)
Into Your hand I commit my spirit; You have redeemed me, O Lord God of truth. (Psalms 31:5 NKJV)
God’s word is truth!
Heavenly Father, God of truth,
Thank you for your word, thank you for revealing its truth! Without you we would be nothing but lost sheep without a shepherd! Thank you for calling out to those who are listening, to those who have an ear! We have heard you and want to listen to what you have to say! We pray for those who are hard of hearing, may they receive your words, may they realize the truth! May you direct their paths and make them straight! May they come to the saving knowledge of Your Son Jesus Christ, who came so many years ago as the word in human form to be the savior of the world, who died on a cross for all our sins, who was raised on the third day and lives today to intercede for His sheep, your children! And In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace (Ephesians 1:7 NKJV) Father we are all sinners in this God forsaken world and we need your forgiveness! We need your helping hand, your love, and your will for our lives here on earth as it is in heaven! Make it so Father! Come quickly!
