That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, - Ephesians 5:26 (KJV).
The other day I heard from a preacher say that thorns are actually dehydrated leaves. He said that if one keeps their roses well-hydrated that the thorns can return to their original state.
If this is true, we are like those thorns.
Without enough feeding on the Word, we become a shriveled up stick that is only good for irritating people.
If, though, we saturate ourselves in the Word of God through Bible study, listening to solid, Biblical teaching and reading Bible-based books, we too can return to our original state.
We have to be washed in the Word, keeping it as the final authority in our lives. When we receive a bad report, we should go to the Word. What does the Word say about our problem?
Stand on the Word in your time of crisis because it is the only Report that will get you through any situation. It is the only Report that will change what you see into what you can't see yet.
