There is a sad reality regarding death for some people. But before I go into this topic, let me talk about some of the known causes of death: heart attack, organ failure, horrific accidents and causes of nature.

No matter how someone dies, there is always a cause. Now the sad reality is this: sometimes people with deadly sicknesses die not from the sickness itself, but from the news of that sickness!

Such negative effect comes from just hearing the words of the doctor. Now if negative results come from negative words. I believe the opposite can happen from words of faith. But if you don’t know what the Word of God says, then you are more inclined to taking in negative words and may even die spiritually because of your lack of knowledge of the Word of God!

For the word of God is living and powerful… (Hebrews 4:12)

Now, imagine if you started believing in the Word of God and really absorbing it for what it is: Living and Powerful!

Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying you will live forever! But you certainly would avoid dying before your time.

And when it comes to your spiritual life, once you stay in the Word: practicing it daily, you will not die spiritually! There will be no problem that will keep you down. Your life will reflect the Living and Powerful God that you believe in!

May the God of the Bible bless you.
