The Blessings of His Word



There are so many blessings to be enjoyed by dwelling in the word of God. Here are just a few of them.

Wealth and Riches
(Psa 119:162 KJV)  I rejoice at thy word, as one that findeth great spoil.
If he rejoices at it as one that finds great spoil, it means it is extremely valuable.

(Pro 10:22 KJV)  The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.
When God blesses one, He blesses with His word, therefore His word is His blessing. In fact, the word “blessing” involves speech.

(Psa 19:10 KJV)  More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
If they are to be more desired than gold, even more than much fine gold, then it means that they are far more valuable than gold. Anything that is far more valuable than gold is in itself a type, means and source of wealth encompassing even monetary riches.

Evergreen, fruitfulness, prosperity
(Psa 1:2 KJV)  But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
(Psa 1:3 KJV)  And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

Understanding, Light, Insight, Direction, etc
(Psa 119:105 KJV)  NUN. Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

(Psa 119:99 KJV)  I have more understanding than all my teachers: for thy testimonies are my meditation.

(Psa 119:100 KJV)  I understand more than the ancients, because I keep thy precepts.

 (Psa 119:130 KJV)  The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.

(Psa 36:9 KJV)  For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light.

(Psa 19:7 KJV)  The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.
(Psa 19:8 KJV)  The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.

Forewarning, Protection
(Psa 19:11 KJV)  Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward. The word, translated warned there encompasses enlightenment and warning.

Spirit and life
(Joh 6:63 KJV)  It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

Sanctification, Purity
(Joh 17:17 KJV)  Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

(Psa 119:9 KJV)  BETH. Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.

(Psa 119:11 KJV)  Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.

Health, Healing
(Pro 4:22 KJV)  For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.

(Exo 15:26 KJV)  And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee.

Delight
(Psa 119:103 KJV)  How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
(Psa 19:10 KJV)  More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

Note 1 on Romans 1:1: Being a Servant, Destiny, God's Purpose, Faith, Holiness and other thoughts

Verses 1- 7 mark the introduction to the epistle to the Romans. The epistle begins with an introduction.
In this introduction, we learn a few things.
Verse 1
At the beginning of his epistle, Paul introduces himself as, "a servant of the Lord Jesus Christ called [to be] an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God".
“… a servant of the Lord Jesus Christ”
The word rendered "servant" here means "slave." Some commentators and Bible translations have expressed it as "bondservant" or "bond-slave", both of which essentially mean the same thing- slave. So essentially, Paul is introducing himself as a slave of the Lord Jesus Christ.
What does that mean?
For our purposes, we will define a slave as someone “who is the property of another person and whose labor and life often is subject to the owner's volition." (Wiktionary). In other words, there is the presence of two elements: the ownership of one person by another and the owner’s right of se…

Note 2 on Romans 1:1: Discovering and Fulfilling God's Will for your Life

Rom 1:1 (KJV):  Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God,
called [to be] an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God.
This simply means that his work as an apostle was limited to the gospel (good news or good tidings) of God.
'Called' there means appointed or ordained. The words “to be” are italicized in the King James Version (KJV) because they are not in the original Greek manuscript and were only added by the KJV translators to aid understanding of the sentence. This is because the word, ‘called’ here is translated from the Greek word, ‘klÄ“tos’ which primarily means invited. As such, the sentence would have read: invited an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God.

Notes on Romans 1:8

(Rom 1:8 KJV) First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world.
First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all,
Thanking God through Jesus Christ is how we are to give thanks and it is one and the same with thanking God in the name of Jesus: see the following Scriptures:
Eph 5:20 (KJV) Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;
Col 3:17 (KJV) And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
It means giving thanks to God because of Jesus Christ or for the sake of Jesus Christ. It is giving thanks to God in or by open acknowledgment of what the Lord Jesus has done. In simple terms, it is thanksgiving infused with or borne out of a Christ-consciousness.
See Heb. 13:15 (KJV):
