13. Word of God: Metaphors and Similes

God’s word is compared to a number of things. Here’s a few I thought of– please leave your comments to give us more!

God’s word is…

Psalm 119:105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

Luke 8:11 Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.
1Peter 1:23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.

Ephesians 6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God
Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword…

God’s word is like:

Silver: Psalm 12:6
Rain: Isaiah 55:10-11
Fire, a Hammer: Jeremiah 23:29

So…

God’s word is our guide, our source of birth & growth, our protection & source of conviction.
God’s words are pure, they give provision and will prosper (at the right season), they are purifying and powerful.

What are your meditations on this subject?

    I’ve been blessed. Also, God’s word is Life.
    “The words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life” – Joh 6:63.

    God’s Word is like food. It nourishes our souls. Jeremiah said, “When your words came, I ate them; they were my joy and my heart’s delight…” (Jeremiah 15:16). David also said, “…they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the comb.” (Psalm 19:10) http://www.LifeTeachingPro.com
