Breakfast with Solomon - Proverbs 4:22
"For they are life to those who find them and health to all their body"
This is the Hebrew word chayay, which means life, alive. Solomon states that his words contained in this book called Proverbs are more than just words. They are inspired words that will bring life to the one who understands and uses them.
Life is a gift from God and life is waiting to be lived if you grab the truths in the Word of God. Too many Christians and others are waiting for some holy zap to catapult them into some new level of living. That is not how you get there. God has given us life – first in the life and death of Jesus Christ and second in the words of Scripture. If you do not take advantage of these gifts, then they do you no good. Grab the gift of Jesus Christ and Scripture and use them every day to chart your life.
This is the Hebrew word marpe, which means healing, cure, health, bringing healing. God designed the universe and human life as to how it should operate. He has given us Scripture to show us how to live the way He designed life. If you live His way, then it will bring the highest form of health that is possible for human life.
