13. Word of God: Metaphors and Similes

Monday, May 5th, 2008

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?
