What is the word of God to you? The word of God is more than a book we carry to church. Surely, it’s the creator’s manual for living on earth, where He poured out His heart to His creation made in His image. And anyone who lives by it gets satisfied with life and fulfils destiny and purpose.

But Jesus answered him, saying, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.’

Luke 4:4 NKJV

Why Live By The Word?

1. You are created and sustained by the word

You’re made by the word of God and you’re maintained by the same word. Therefore, it’s wise to live by it to avoid malfunctioning of your life and destiny.

Who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,

Hebrews 1:3 NKJV

2. The Just shall live by his faith

The scripture says that you shall live by your faith, and faith comes by hearing the word of God. As such, the scripture can be interpreted as, “The just shall live by the word of God.” It is a lamp to your feet and a light to your path and leads you to your glorious future.

Behold the proud, His soul is not upright in him; but the just shall live by his faith.

Habakkuk 2:4 NKJV

3. God is committed to His word

He will not break His covenant nor alter His words. Therefore, you’re secured following His word, for the Lord is bound by it and it will never change. So, God’s word is a sure pillar to lean on in life.

My covenant I will not break, Nor alter the word that has gone out of My lips.

Psalms 89:34 NKJV

4. The Lord watches over His word to fulfill it.

He looks out for His word to perform it. So, when you act on God’s word He watches over it to see it fulfilled in your life. However, when you’re presenting cries and woes to Him, He would have nothing to watch over and fulfil. 

Then the Lord said to me, “You have seen well, for I am watching over my word to perform it.”

Jeremiah 1:12 RSV

5. It’s superior to any other word

God is superior to any other god, as such His word is superior to any other word. And He will always have the final say. Therefore, living by the word of God is to live above other gods.

For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality nor takes a bribe.

Deuteronomy 10:17 NKJV


The word of God is Spirit and is life and health to all that find it and live by it. Also, it puts you ahead of others
